Anthracite RAC RG63 on Alpine White E92 M3

Mounted and installed them yesterday but finally got a chance to snap some pictures in daylight. The pictures really don't do the anthracite color justice though - the finish has a depth and shine that I'm not able to capture with my cheapo point-and-shoot camera.

These wheels look fantastic. Shep obviously came through with flying colors for all of you. You all helped to design the wheel and ended up with a bespoke wheel that is perfect for the M3. I would say this was a very successful group buy--you must all be thrilled. Congratulations!

Congrats on a great looking set of wheels. You're right, though -- that does look like a lot of weights on your FL wheel.

Looks fantastic! I can't wait to see/get mine on.

I don't know if the mods can do this, but maybe we should turn this thread into the generic RG63 photo thread for all those in the gb to post in...make it a sticky or something.

Thanks for the compliments. Shep did a great job designing the wheels and the quality is second to none. They were well worth the long wait. Wasn't sure I picked the right color at first because the silver and gunmetal finishes looked so good, but I'm liking anthracite more the more I look at it.

yeah, not sure why that wheel required a lot of weights, but it's probably the tires and hopefully my next set of tires will be better balanced.

Yes, the RG63 was only made in 19". Haven't really tested the Vreds yet - initial impression is that they are quieter than the Contis I had on last.

I don't have an extra set, but some other members may and RAC may do a second run of these wheels after the new year.

The wheels look absolutely great. Did you buy the tires from us by any chance? We have some of the best prices on those Vredesteins.
