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.

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.
