Opinion Needed *

Hey guys, did my best to find a wheel company that offers 1 piece 20inch light weight wheels. I was referred to check these wheels out by VIPAutosalon. There is a pdf that I will attempt to attach that shows these wheels on a Z4. Let me know what you guys think...

Not sure exactly on the weight, but it must be really light. VIP Auto Salon has used these wheels before and the owner Clark, one of good friends, mentioned that this company only uses the best. He also stated that he has lifted these wheels before and were real light. My assumption is no more then 30 pounds. Price should around 3-4k; however, I would need to double check. This is their site, check it out for more wheels http://s-2.co.jp/html/seiken.htm.

They look like the BBS RE-R's or the Breyton GTS's. If you are looking for an extremely high performance wheels that are also unique, check out AMT forged wheels. Heres a link to their site:
http://www.amtforgedalloys.com/index.html
Their 19 x 8.5 wheels weighs 15.9 lbs.
Clark has good taste in wheels and only carries the best wheels, and i think those would look good on an M3. If they were gunmetal, they would kind of resemble the wheels on the concept of the m3 ALMS car.

OP... you spoiled all the fun.
We just became the distributor for NKB and we were about to offer those.

For the M3, they are going to be:
19 - 8.5 +18
19 - 9.5 +18

Priced right around $3500/set.
they are also available in 20" sizes.

We will launch the brand real soon.......

Those are sick wheels just too flash for me which is why I decided on the Advans
If only those 086R's came in a 19" and not just 21" I would buy them up so fast

But I'll be giving you a call back tomorrow Julius
