Has anyone tried to put m6 gran coupe rims (Style # 433) on the m3?
Pictures would be appreciated.

Thanks.

back at you, those are the old M6 rims and judging by that pic they seem like replicas. The 433 rims would probably look great but I'd imagine a stretched tire due to the +19 rear offset.

Oh I knew what rims those were on the Space Gray above.

The point I was making ... is that they would look equally out of place.

Thanks for the replies. I know the original 433 would look crazy because they are huge. But there are some smaller replicas that I believe should look good on the M3. I was wondering if someone had pictures so I can see how the design looks on an M3.

I was considering a set of reps for the winter so I photoshopped it on my own car (a sedan). After looking at it for a while, I decided that the lines didn't really match up with the E9x styling. The open-spoke design just looked weird with our brakes.

That's just my opinion though. It's your car and YOU should be the one who likes it.

I love these wheels on the M6 GC, they look a little large on the E92 but still very cool.

The car looks like a Transformer to me now
I like it, not sure I'd pay that kind of money for the wheels though.

Yea that's what that thread was originally about, M5/6 retrofit brakes. Pics are from a dealership from Germany. That's a hell of an expensive setup right there
