CSL style wheels

I need some help, the more I look at wheels the more I change my mind, way too many options. What do you guys think the best option for matte black CSL style wheels? They don't need to be forged and I am planning on keeping my OEM 18"s for track time.

I like the some of the early decisions you have made in regards to wheel construction technology, but VMR has a well-established brand name reputation with CSL replica wheels. That's going to he an uphill battle for your company, which I'm sure you already know.

Your future is bright, if you play your cards right. There are a few things that you need to address asap, if you want to see more than modest success in the future.

PM for details.

We have had a great success with our CSL wheel precisely because we have strengthen ourselves in our competitor's weaknesses.

Here's a pic of Matte Black VMR CSL 19"s on an AW M3.



Post a side shot like this of your car and I can Photoshop whatever color wheels you want onto it.

VMR gets my vote, we've had success with their wheels for the past 6 years and would not hesitate to run them on my own car.

Or you can pay 4-5x the price of VMR wheels and get this chipping.

VMR's CSL looks very nice. The 10" has some massive concave.

Is that Matt or gloss black in the image below Tom that you posted?
not sure which would look good on space grey M3, matt, gloss or standard silver?

Standard silver looks great same as the concept space grey M3

What would be the widest 19" wheels with stock springs and EDC without any issues like rubbing?

The 19" CSLs are Matte Black. On SG they do look good, it's really aggressive so matte black kidney grilles and side gilles might be a good idea to get along with it.

The largest that you can run, which is what we're running, is the 19x9.5" ET22 up front and 19x10" ET25 in the rear with a 265-Front and a 295-Rear tire.

We're lowered on KW V3's so if you're on stock springs, you shouldn't have an issue here

I don't have a link for that set up on our website, but I can certainly set you up with a price on those, just shoot me over a PM of exactly what you want, and you'll be good to go.
