Silver 437M (F8x M3/4) wheels on E92 M3?

I was wondering if anyone has had a chance to mount a set of 437M wheels from the new F8x M3/4 on an E92 M3 yet. The wheels come in ZCP widths, but are super light, in the range of 22 lbs., I believe, which is significantly lighter than the E92 ZCP wheels.

I think they look great and would love to see a set on an E92 M3.

Rear offset will require a large spacer.

For stock wheels, 22lbs is pretty light.

Compared to 18" Volks or some BBS FIs maybe not. But compared to OEM wheels, 22 lbs is very light.

Anyway, let's not argue semantics. This thread is about how they look.

rears are 19x10 ET40, so you'll need at least a 15mm spacer for it to be within the OEM ZCP specs.

I don't think they are actually that much lighter than 220M's. But as everyone said, you'd need some pretty damn big spacers to get them pushed out towards the quarter panels, that's the only bad part IMO.
