Wheels M3?

Does anyone know if the rims shown in Geneva will be on the production car?

I really love the rims, the black ones on the camoed cars are hidious.

If the rims aren't available on the cars through BMW, does anyone know what rims come close to these. They look like BBS. but I heard BBS is broke....

Any info is welcome for me on this!

I mean the rims in the pics below

yes the CSL's were made my BBS...
also the 19 OEM before the competiton package was also helped created by BBS... hence thats why they are light weight etc. (that is their specialty)

Check out Tirerack.com- The BBS RS-GT in Diamond Black is very close at $986 per 19" . Great looking wheel- I'll be buying a set if BMW doesn't offer somehting similar.

$986 per?!?!?!?

Could you ever buy those wheels from BMW? If so, how much were they?
What was the offical wheel weight?
The competition package certainly was about the cost of those 4 wheels, plus you got a good bit of other things.

Actually, the BBS RGR look really close.

you can always tell your dealer to trade in your stock rims and pay a smaller fee of having CSLS... I am thinkin abou tit once I see final production I will see if I change...

but if the CSL is released in United States (and it may have those rims) I will have second thoughts

I hate wannabe cars *as in 330i sedan and change the bumper to make it look just like a ZHP* or something like that...

so putting Rims to make the car mor elike a CSL when there actually is a CSL released is not my thing...

That is only my opinion though

^ Now that is a pretty wheel and light too! Whats the cost per wheel for those puppies? Sizes?

Do you have anymore stationary pics???

They look a like CSL's

However, I would imagine that future CSL's will have there own design that may be similar to the E46 CSL's. Much like the current 19's offered are similar to the old 19's.

We will see though.

Cool, MORRAlloys. Good to see a vendor already on top of this!

I don't like the wheel choices BMW is giving us for the E92M so ... it's never too soon to start looking for alternatives..................

If you have any other possibilities, post 'em up!

We have a 7-spoke design coming out as well. Also, there is a possibility that we might design a 5-spoke split version of the M6 wheel.
