I wouldn't do more than 19 for a daily driver. Not a fan of those, a little too aftermarket look for me. I like Avant Garde wheels, just ordered some 19" M590s.

Interesting observation...

I was thinking they were closer to stock since they're 10 spoke like the stock 19" BBS's that came with the car. Hmmm?

I thought about a 5 spoke pattern (wide split double spoke, not narrow - don't really like all that space in between the wheel pattern). I'll see if I can find a pic...

I'll look up the Avant Garde's. Thx for the input!

M590 - yeah, I looked at this pattern (in a couple of different brands). But it's too similar for me to the pattern of the wheels on the Uber M3 (10 instead of 7)...

Hey Rusty. I don't know if your into chrome but I have a nice set of AC schnitzer Type III wheels, 19 inch.   Vorsteiner has a good collection of 5 spoke wheels.

Thx for the offer John but chrome's not gonna work on a silver car (IMHO). And if I'm gonna go the 19" route, I'll prolly keep the BBS's that came with the car (although I may powder coat them satin black).

I'll look into Vorsteiner's options. Thx for the suggestion!
