valid point! I suggest you wait and save. Just take off M3POST from your bookmarks and you will be happy with your blacked out OEM 19's!

Haha yes, I made the mistake myself and I regret it.. you shouldn't repeat my same mistake. Get a set of good forged wheels, they go around 3 - 4k if you don't go for the (IMO) overpriced brands.

VMR is hard to beat in sub 2k M3 wheel territory. Look better than stock with similar or slightly less weight.

100% agree. For the price, they are JWL and VIA certified, well regarded on the forum and extremely high quality.

I dont think it's less according to this link from 503 Alex: http://bmw.pencilgeek.org/WheelsDB.html
19x9.5 at 25.5lbs

VMR 710's are going to be over 27.5lbs in the 19x9.5 ET22 in terms of weight.

I agree in the price range the Forgestars can't be beaten in this price point.

Strength: Flow Form cast - strength is high point 1500lbs per corner rating
Same technology Used on Formula 1 and Indy Cars. Advan/BBS which use same technology run upwards of $3000 for set, these are $1400 in your price range.

Data backup :
(STL REPORT 19x8.5 (PDF 35K)
STL REPORT 19x9.0 (PDF 35K)
STL REPORT 19x10 (PDF 35K)
STL REPORT 19x11 (PDF 35)

Weight:
19x8.5 Approx weight 22.5 lbs
19x9.0 Approx weight 24.7 lbs
19x10. Approx weight 24.1 lbs

Sizes:

You can get the front with a 19x8.5 or 19x9, Rears you can do 19x10 or even 19x11 with 305 Tires. Custom sizes and offsets to your needs and specifications - so go agressive as you want or conservative as you want. Clears Big brake kits as well.
