E90 M3 on F80 19's

We tried the OEM 18's on an E92 back when these cars first arrived, but we had an extra set of 19's lying around and wanted to see how it looked. We ran this setup with 15mm spacers all around, but the rears still have room to go wider. What do you guys think?













This is how she normally looks on custom built Kinesis K28's

Not bad, but prefer the 18s for a more balanced look.

Personally, I like these new wheels a fair amount. They're very similar to M6 wheels, which I've always thought are a great wheel design. I just wish the offsets were correct for our cars out of the box.

I didn't see the 18's on the E90. Could you post up those pics here too? Or a link to the other thread? TIA

Yeah they're basically the same wheel just smaller than the M6's 20". Those will have more aggressive offsets than these, but then you're stuck with the 20's.

Here's the link to the poem 18's

Yeah. 20's--no bueno. I forgot that the more recent M6 has this style wheel also. I was referring to the previous generation M6's. They're all very similar nonetheless.

Thanks for the link. I definitely prefer these 19's to those 18's in the other thread.

I like the new wheels but only the silver version and they look better on the E90 than on the F8X

Looks good! I like the fact that it looks very OEM like it came on the e90 to begin with. If you ever get the black 19's I'd love to see that as I think the black ones look more unique.

Interesting to see the f8x wheels on the E90. My vote is for the K28s, though

Looks really good, IMO.

Now the only thing missing is the F8x 19s on an E92.
