What are the lightest 19's for the M3

What are the lightest aftermarket 19" rims that would fit an M3?
How much Lighter are they than the OEM 19"

Would that difference equate to a noticeable improvement>?

For the sake of the discusion- lets not take looks into account.

Our VS7 are pure performance. We didn't care for aesthetics. The VS8 will be a whole new story

I can't see any pics of VS8s mounted on cars on your website. Do you have any you can share?

Sorry to be such a stickler but your web site says 20lbs. Not that it's much of a difference. LOL sorry.

The vs8's look good--will they be designed specifically for the m3?

We have not determined what offset we are going to be using for the E92 M3, however, we have seen as wide as 11" in the rear meaning there is enough room in there.

We are making an 19" E92 M3-specific fitment as soon as we get our hands on one.

This will definitely be one of the lightest setups for this car.

Well, I will be paying attention then Morralloys. I can't wait to see what you come up with. I will be looking into yourself, RAC, HRE, perhaps Kinesis, and maybe BBS.

Nobody knows what is the max ET for an M3 E92 with 8,5x19 and 9,5x19 or 10,0x19?
Thanks in advance.

For the sake of the discusion- lets not take looks into account.
Monoforged wheels are going to be the lightest. Forging gives the advantages of being able to make lighter wheels, or stronger wheels, or some combination of both. Personally, for street use, I'll give up some lightness for more strength. My 19x9 & 10 RAC RG4s wigh 22-23 lb, but they are really strong. Have taken many potholes without a whimper. Still perfectly true and dent free.

Sorry guys...come in here to save the day! (j/k)...If price is no option and it is just used for the track, get dymags...but they are NOT suited for bumpy-ish road use. After that, I have not found anything that is lighter than the HRE C93...They will be on their site soon-ish (unknown to me) but they should weigh in at like 19.x lbs for 19x12!!! so much less for 19x9.5/10

pics of the c93s and all other c9x series (c93 lightest by a very small margin of ~0.95 lbs to c97, etc) can be found here:
http://www.6speedonline.com/forums/s...hre+c97&page=2 middle of the page-ish

i will be getting the c97s when I get my car.

About the performance, you should definitely feels a large difference as it would probably save at least 8-9 lbs/wheel...the M3 OEM 19s are heavy.

I'm thinking Volk TE37s and CE28s, CCW's competition line of wheels, and whatever everyone else posted up about.

EDIT:

http://www.wheelweights.net/

TE37 19x8.5 - 20.2 lbs
TE37 19x9.5 - 20.9 lbs

CE28 19x8.5 - 19.4 lbs

i'm bumping this thread up rather than start a new one!

Things must have changed radically since the last couple of answers here.

I'm looking for something between 16-20 pounds per rim to replace 19' OEM's.

Thoughts are appreciated.
