2008 E92 M3  [4.50]
SSII E92 M3 on Satin Black M359 wheels

First, my disclaimer: the wheels are ZCP/359M reps made by Avant Garde (M359), not OEM ZCP wheels. I am still very impressed with the quality and feel its a great value.
Wheel specs; F: 19x9 ET-18 and R: 9x10 ET-25.
Tires: Hankook V12 Evos, specs; F: 245/35/19, R: 275/30/19.

I wanted to post these pictures because it was relatively difficult to find many pictures of Silverstone/SSII with black wheels, specifically the ZCP style (although there is a recent post by xsilvor that are amazing, found here: If anything, comparing the two threads really shows how SSII changes shade, mine were taken during an overcast day.

I definitely understand that some people won't like SSII on black wheels (as I was a bit skeptical myself) but overall I think it really makes such a beautiful color achieve a much more aggressive look. I will definitely keep my 220s for when I want a change... [I do know it needs a slight drop]
