I used to hate them. The style makes them appear smaller than they truly are.

But I fell in love when I saw them on archiebabes old fire orange wrapped E92.

Now they're my favorite wheels for the E92, (in 19") making it look like an even more aggressive racing machine.


Nice look OP!!

I think the color of the SL's is too close to color of the car. I prefer some contrast. I think they work in 18" when the car is lowered on coilovers (springs are not low enough).

I don't care for them on the M either.

OP need to go bigger, 19", imo. 18" just seems too small looking for those wheels.
Thank god someone said this. IMO these wheels have no place on this car; to Fast & Furious. Design wise I think the style of these wheels takes away from the lines of the car, specifically the chunky spoke design. Just my opinion... Obviously others feel different.
