*ATTN wheel vendors* Question about Volk TE37

I am looking into the Volk TE37s for my E92 M3 in 19". I want them in the bronze finish though, rather then the black. Is this finish available in E92 fitment? if not, what about silver?


Any info/pics would be GREAT! thanks in advance

Here is a photoshop

Silver is available. Bronze doesn't seem to be a choice, but you can always have them powder-coated.

I dont want to go through the hassle of powdercoating. Im afraid the color wont match, plus I dont want to spend the money on it. A thorough powder job should cost 600-800$

You could try to special order them possibly.

It is available in Bronze. It's one of the standard finishes for the TE37s in Japan. You might have to special order them though.

I'm pretty sure a vendor would need to order 10 sets and then you would have to wait at least 3 months prolly more for Mackin to get them imported. I tried to order gold CE28Ns which was a standard color for my E46 M3, and they never got made.

Any color that was offered by Volks can be done for Te37s.(even just 1 sets)
It just need to be special order, and it usually takes about 2-3 months for delivery.



White, Mercury Silver, Titanium Silver, Silver, Bronze, Gold, Titanium Gunmetal, Gunmetal, Flat Black, Diamond Black, Glass Black, Mag Blue, ect ect ect


Let me know which spec you want, I will get you the quotes.
Bronze is standard color, no extra charge for it.

Go on their website or just search on the 350z forums. You'll find tons of pics of volk wheels there.

The date Volk/Mackin give you have nothing to do with them actually building the wheel and shipping it. Unless it is a popular bolt pattern and color, good luck, ever receiving the wheel.

This man has clearly dealt with this issue before. They will typically do a wheel in any finish that they have, but minimum qty is 40 (10 sets of 4) and 3 months is a decent guess on transit time *if* you put an order in for all 10 sets at once.

I have contact in Japan that I can refer people to if you want to custom order a set of Volk wheels. They don't have any minimum requirement for order. They are the ones who got me the NEEZ rims on my car.
