Hey Rays Dealers, push Rays to build this for BMW

So, who do we petition at Rays for them to come out with this wheel in BMW fitment? (And 19")

I'll volunteer to be the guinea pig on test fitting!!

Good excuse to upgrade the brakes I like them more than my TE37 SL!

Sorry man, but those don't call my name at all. Check out Motegi wheels (think that's it), they make something like that. I've seen them on BMWs during one of the GrandAm races or some other race series.

They look like ugly spiders. Just get a set of the BBS FI or the Vorsteiner ones.

For the price those probably cost, they really don't look all that impressive to me. Looks like a wheel you can buy at Discount Tire IMO

Look at Volk G25... Similar design and higher quality forged wheel available in M3 fitment.

Not feeling these. They look like FI knock-offs, and I'm not really a fan of 20" wheels on an M3.

Evidently, the 20" is the initial release, they are coming out with 18-19" size with various bolt patterns later.

I don't mind being different, I'll give em a shot when/if they come out in 19" fitment.

I can't afford Vorsteiner/FI's (at least not new)...and don't know if I'd spend that much on a set of wheels if I could

2nd that. They look very similar to the G25s but cast. I think the G25 is a cleaner look though.
