The 18s were gunmetal (style 219M) for 2008-2010 then changed to silver (style 260M, see below). The set in the pic is for sale in the classified forum. The look very similar but are actually different wheels. Both are OEM.

There was a silver 219M wheel available as well in the USA. I know because the dealer replaced a wheel and sent me the wrong one.

Here is an example of silver 219M



All the current M3s come with the 18" 260M wheels.

Thanks All

Seller says he has the silver ones. 2 wheels are from a 2010 and 2 are from a 2011 and that all 4 are BBS 18x8 wheels. Does this mean all the wheels are the same. Is BBS the manufacturer for BMW?

My 219M gunmetals are made by BBS according to the stamp inside each wheel.

In my knowledge, BMW M3 never came with 18x8 size 219.
Factory OEM sizes are 18x8.5F, 18x9.5R.

There are silver and gunmetal versions of both the 219M and 260M. The gunmetal 260M was not sold in north america as far as I can tell.
