Both these wheels and the GTS wheels are 19X9 and 19X10.

The GTS comes with the same Style 359M wheels that the ZCP comes with, but with a different finish.

Evan from Tischer or any other vendor that sells them, can you respond to the concerns about the finish on these wheels.

This is AWESOME. I was going to get ZCP's in the spring cause I thought you couldn't get GTS's.

with the problems with quality control, anyone want to buy my ZCP's? I can get them powdercoated gts style just like my other set (I bought a second set to powdercoat).

[end shameless plug]

You are acting like you have a real set of GTS wheels

I bet you are gonna try and lie to us and say that BMW gave you a Black and a Silver set of 359M's with tires or some shit like that

You swear to god that you spoke to the M division themselves and had them pretty well one off a car for you

Some people around here act like they are really special don't they

Oh you....... 'Ya had me there for a few seconds. Just reading those first couple of lines "How would you know"....got me going real good. Thought "oh here we go, after all the factual posts I've put out there, here's some idiot yappin off about what he doesn't know. So you're up one...but I'll get you back mister!!!

On a serious note, for those wanting a set of the black GTS comp rims, I've had them on since I got the car in May and believe me, they're much easier to keep clean (O.K., I'll be honest...they don't show the brake dust as much) than the equivalent silver versions. And they polish up nicely. They've just come off for the winter and I put a good coat of Autoglym sealer and then wax which brought the satin up just a bit. And I'm sorry to hear about quality problems with the few wheels that have made it into the U.S. Mine are blem-free, as I would have expected from a factory order. Hope those of you who get your hands on a set are as satisfied as I've been.

Oh and Jamie brother....kiss my ass! Still love 'ya though

The thing that bothers me about the set is that in no time they dust up and look flat black... Did the sealer and wax you put on help with it staying more of a semi-gloss? I may opt for the same thing. What brand wax do you use? The sealer and wax is okay for the finish, right? (I have never put either on any of my wheels)

TIA!

I was hoping you would see my post, I couldn't help myself.

I am just jealous thats all..... you know I would have been all over building a car hand in hand with the M division!!! If only I would have gotten in touch with you sooner.

By the way, when is the Dinan exhaust due to arrive??? I know you probably told me on the phone but I forget. Your gonna love your M so much more with the extra sound!!!

Talk to you soon

I noticed the dust but it was much more prevalent on the insides of the spokes and you're right, it flattened the finish a bit. I could always see the low gloss sheen on the outside face of the wheels otherwise, but then again I'm anal and usually wiped them down every few days.

The sealer and wax went on nicely and polished up nicely (no residue, etc even on the inside where the finish is rough...but the inside coatings did take a bit of work because of that). Can't tell you about how Autoglym works with the dust 'cause the wheels won't be back on the car until the spring. I only got to do this because of winter tire changeup. I'd recommend sealer and/or waxing with the wheels off 'cause it was much easier. And I'll probably get some Wheel Wax for the final coat. Never used it but heard it helps repel the brakedust fairly well - or at least makes it easier to spray off.

And Jamie - springtime for Dinan, it'll give me something to look forward to besides the good weather!!

I see where those specs read 9" and 10" but they are listed at 9.5" and 10.5" and actually measure 10" and 11" from face to face. I would assume wheel width is reported as distance from inner rim to innner rim, which would indeed be 9.5" and 10.5".

I received mine and all four are flawless. The boxes had foam protecting both sides of the wheels and around the wheels in my shipment. They look great!!!

interesting... those pics look like they have a bit more gloss than my set that I had powdercoated. I actually like it with a bit more gloss (but maybe it is the lighting)...

its the flash that makes it look gloss. i think the wheels have a more matte finish. not completely matte but almost.
