AW Wheel Choice?

I can't make up my mind which looks the best with AW?

What does everyone think? I don't really care about 18's vs 19's

220 M for sure. The wheels are VERY nice in person if you haven't seen them before. That being said, I've ordered mine with the 260M for track set-up and will be going aftermarket for daily driving.

In my opinion, 220M is the best look for AW M3 but 359M is rare (so it's more desirable).

What I recommend is (if you didn't order your car yet) get a Competition package (since it has a few more good upgrade comes with it) and 220M + cah trade to get some money back while enjoying all competition package upgrades.

I really.. really like the 359m wheels, but the tire rubber is stretched way to far for my liking on the ZCP pkg.

I just realized who posted this..ChrisK. No way are you allowed to get AW with 220m. We will be driving the same darn car to meets! Are you keeping the 135i or trading it in? What interior are you getting?

Yeah, so, those are the exact same options I am getting! However, I wont be taking delivery until early March. I should be back home from Afghanistan in January, but obviously I wont take delivery then. Ill be keeping my 135i as my winter car since its already paid for. Sorry to thread jack everybody.
