My New Track Wheels

My new (new to me) track wheels. I bought them from another forum member. When I took them out of the box I was surprised at how light they felt. When is all of this snow going to melt??!!

18" TE37SL's are the best wheels you can buy for the M3 when you factor price, performance, and aesthetics.

Thanks all, now I just have to figure out what to run for tires. I think I am going to stay on street tires for now, so Nitto NT05, RS3 and AD08 are on the short list, depending on the sizing I end up with. The wheels are 18x9.5/18x10.5 so I was thinking either 265/35 and 285/35 or 295/30. First track day is not until April so I still have some time...

I'm really happy with my 265/35, 295/30 setup. AD08's.

Yea out of the brands I'm looking at it seems the AD08 is the only one that comes in 295/30. Not sure if the others do.

I think it's called pressed graphite. It'll look on Jerez Black.
