Got new shoes



The old rims gave me a meaner look. The new look is a "cleaner"/"nicer" one. Which do you guys prefer?

OLD: 20" DPE S-20s (20x9.5, 20x11) with gloss black lips and matte black centers.









NEW: 20" Diamnod Black BBS LM-R (Ericsson Offset)

LMRs hands down, no competition, close thread! They are the best looking wheels for the E92 m3 IMO and the color goes perfect with SG.

They both look good in their own ways. The DPE are different with a gloss black step lip. The BBS is probably better quality. Went from a bad boy look to a subtle look that mixes in well with almost every car with BBS LM or LMR which are so common among M3 owners but im sure thats for a reason.

Thanks for the complements everyone. I loved the fact that not everyone had the S20s and I was battling with cookie cutter bimmer vs mean looking and different. I had the DPEs for almost 4 years now and just wanted a change. I was considering painting the barrels gloss black or getting the barrels done in a black chrome, but I'm still not sure.
