Bronze Volk TE37's or Brushed black/gunmetal BC Forged HB 05's?

Just a quick poll to see what you guys think. One or the other. My MR E92 M3 needs some new shoes. Thanks.

PS. I know it's a matter of opinion... I just want to hear what you all think.

Pics of my car as is. It will be lowered at the same time.

HB05. I like the 29's also but I see less people with the 05.

No offence to BC Racing (I do think some of the "designs" are quite nice)...

But when one is contemplating a choice between Volks and BC Racing... you ALWAYS choose Volks...

Without a doubt, Volk. RE30 is also a winner on MR, here's a couple of examples:

Melbourne Red on TE37




Melbourne Red on RE30 Clubsports




Either way, we have you covered.

Haven't bought any springs yet. Looking at the best options right now. Thinking H&R springs at the moment.

Can anyone tell me why the 18in TE's look like they have more concave than the 19's? I bought 19's but the spokes look very straight compared to shots I've seen of the 18inch versions.?!?

18's and 19's have a different design even though they share the same width and similar offsets.

19's have a lip and less concave. 18's have a smaller lip and more concave.

Different strokes for different folks. I'm partial to Bronze TE37.

That can vary depending on the width of the wheel that your referring to, offset, etc.

BTW, I dropped you a PM

Installed

Thanks to everyone that voted. Went with the Volks. Maybe the look will grow on me. I have H&R springs in the trunk and will post a final pic once I find a shop to install and align after. A pic of the car with my new wheels. Let me know what you think.

Two thumbs up! I know it's only temporary but she's just SCREAMING to be lowered. Don't forget to mention and post pictures of her stance and the wheel offsets.
