after market rims for new M3

Hi guys,

I am in the market for a new 2008 M3 coupe
but I don't like the OEM 19" M3 rims
too many spokes and hard to keep clean.
are there any after market rims I can buy?
I want something simple say 5-7 spokes in 19" format
any suggestion.
thanks

i'd go for CSL reps, but thats more than 5-7 spokes. not sure you are ever going to avoid the "hard to keep clean" part on a bimmer. those 14" brakes are going to shit dust all over them all day long. or get the 18" which are already dark ferrite color and don't worry about cleaning it at all.

Sound advice above.

Really any after market 5-nut rim within the correct offset and overall size would work. So it really depends on the style you like. Since you want 5 spokes, you may want to look at AC Schnitzer stuff. Their designs have been pretty controversial lately though.
