Standard M3 Coupe Rims

Can somebody give me a definite answer on which wheel will come standard on a US-spec 2013 M3 Coupe? The configuration on BMWUSA seems to show a different 18" rim than what I see on other dealer's websites. Can anybody shed some light on this for me? My M3 is in status 112 and I am getting nervous it won't be the rim that is currently being used on the website as the standard
rim.


Thanks in advance!

Yep. But the dealer should be able to tell you the style number.

Mine came with 260m silver. It was produced in December 2012.

similar to the 219Ms, the 260Ms came in graphite, until that year BMW changed them to silver, I want to say it was 2012

now that I think about it, I can't recall anyone else in US that got 260M. I think either BMW ran out of 219M or they made a mistake. Then again, everyone's orders these days come with ZCP...so there's not much 18's out there anymore.

I like the 18's. With a drop they look and drive perfect over most surfaces. Now if I can only get a set of rears to run a square setup I will be set!
