Wheel Recommendations

Hey All,

I need some advice.

I just picked up a 6MT e92 Alpine White M3.

First thing on the list of mods is KW Sleeves and Wheels.

What I really would like is for people to chime in on what they think looks best on AW e92's.. Color / Spec (18's or 19's) I don't want 20's. etc.. So if you could post maybe some setups that have been done, I'd greatly appreciate it!

My car came with the 220M Wheels, and tires that are close to needing replaced.

I have a few options as is, and I'd like your opinion on the best one. I was thinking about staying with a close to OEM look, and selling the 220M wheels for the 219's or the ZCP wheels. If I did this OEM swap I would just sell my 220's.

Otherwise, I was thinking I'd go with an aftermarket wheel. My MAX budget for wheels is 4k. I have a preference for TE37 / SL's, BBS LM's, and maybe some HRE's? Any suggestions?

The other option would be to keep the 220M's, and just change the tires and re-address the situation in a few months.

Thanks!

i'll be honest with you, paying 4k really limits you if youre going to be paying retail for some of these aftermarket wheels. I think you're realistically looking only at a monoblock 18" wheel, and if that's the case, i'd keep the 220's

I didn't really consider Advan, although thats a good suggestion.

Volk TE37 / TE37 SL's can be had in the 3200-3400 range for new usually.. Which is something I was considering, but what do you guys think of Mag Blue on Alpine White? Thats one combo I haven't really seen on here.
