Your Dream Wheels would be...?

If you could put any wheels on an E92 space grey M3, what would they be? What would be your dream wheels?

I'm looking for some great ideas. The more specific you can be the better with regard to size color etc.

Pictures would be great. Even better if you have the pictures of the wheels on a M3 and dare I say, even on a space grey M3.

Ti finish would not suit space gray so much, but they are beautiful pieces of art in person.

I am going through the same dilema. Space Grey is a very picky color to choose wheels for. Everything looks good on AW or MW, which is the majority of M3's, so it makes sense. TI, gunmetal, graphite all appear too similar to Space Grey IMO. I would look into BBS CH-R Black 19 or 20", Volk TE37 Gloss Black or Matte Black or TE37SL Diamond Black 18", BBS LM or LM-R with DBK or not looks good. Most anything HRE looks good on SG, but is big $$$.

I have spent WEEKS searching and have looked at every wheel thread available back to 2007 and still can't make up my mind. Spend some time in the Vendor Wheel For Sale forum. You will get some good ideas there.

Good luck and wish me luck...

Im thinking of getting a set of e88's 19" next set up however they are a racing wheel and not made for street. The lips and barrels are thinner then street set up as well as the wheel doesn't have a finish sealant to it.

I really like the way they look just not sure if I could run it without any issues on the street.

F1 as of now seems to be the ultimate street wheel
