E90 M3 - EC-7 Winter Setup Mounted

Decided to go with a new winter setup this year after having traction issues with my worn down set from last year. I went with a new set of Apex EC-7's and Michelin Alpin Pa4's. I have always been a fan of the ARC-8 over the EC-7 but wanted to try something new and I am glad I did. I was worried the 245's would look a bit too stretched on the 9.5" wheels but its not too bad. The style is already growing on me. Let me know what you think!

Wheel size 18x9.5 et22 all around with 245/40/18 all around, 15mm spacers on rear

Looks very good! Great choice of rims for a winter set!

EC-7s look great on modern BMWs.

The car looks awesome!

Always thought the EC-7 would make a good track/winter wheel.

Nicely done on the tail lamps. Just a touch darker than stock without looking ridiculous.

Caesar, the 18x9.5" ET22's look great on your car, especially with the 15mm rear spacer. Awesome photos as usual!
