Looking for pics of aftermarket 18's

We all know 18" is the way to go for better performance and better ride. Thinking of making the jump. Looking for pics of aftermarket 18" wheels on the M3.

Thanks!!!

Apex, HRE R series, CCW, ... boatloads of options. Anything particular you are looking for? Style, BBK clearance, light weight for track, etc.?

Love the look of the Apex EC-7 so I may just wait for that. I drove my buddy's car with Apex wheels and 265/35 (f) 285/35 (r) rubber and it was simply phenomenal both in terms of grip and ride comfort. It wasn't so much that I was looking for something, but rather the fact that I took a test drive and got sold on that set-up. Don't care for the HRE options in 18". They look too flat. Basically, I want good looks, a decent weight, and the right geometry to fit 265/285, preferably without spacers.

i just put on Apec Arc-8s and they rock
even the tech who was mounting my wheels told me
the minute i picked it up i felt it was a special wheel, its very light
i'm using 9.5" front with 265/35 18" fronts
10" rears with 285/35 18"
those widths are the exact widths that match 9.5" and 10"
grip is phenomenal
very good in rain (haven't pushed too hard because they not run in yet)
and they are very quiet

In addition to those already mentioned, the HRE R43s are pretty money.

Sounds like the Apex wheel will be the best fit for you (waiting for the EC-7 myself but like the ARC-8s also.) Personally I am not crazy about the look of the Volks [ducks] especially in 18, even though are a very well constructed wheel. I actually like the flat face of the R-series HRE wheels but couldn't part with that much cash for another set of wheels.

I was going to say TE37 SLs. I went with a custom color as well and in 18 inch. I have ran 19s on all my M cars and want 18s now for the reasons already stated.

I would recommend both TE37SLs and Advan TCIIIs. Here are pics of both:
