Default Need advice on getting OEM wheels....

Hey guys, I wanted your opinion and input on wheels. I have found this beautiful M3 that I want, but it has cheap aftermarket wheels on it. I was wondering where you guys thought were the best place to get OEM wheels for E92 M3's. Are the dealerships our only option?

I have seen many places that advertise "original OEM M3 wheels" but they do not have the "M" on them which makes me believe that they are just a copy.

I even thought about finding some used wheels since many M3 enthusiasts upgrade their wheels and want to unload their old ones for some cash. If that is the case how much are these usually going for?

I just wanted to weigh my options here and go the best route. Thanks guys!

Buddy in my local club in Atlanta is selling a set of M220s (wheels only) for $950.

So yeah, they are out there.

Turner Motorsports has them.

OEM Competition Pkg Wheels

OEM M3 GTS wheels

Also try BMWpartspros

Don't know how these vendors' prices will compare to your local dealer, but there's generally not too much variation on OEM parts.

Default Re: Need advice on getting OEM wheels....

Thanks a ton for the response guys! So I have been doing more research and I am hearing 2 words that I am totally unfamiliar with...... ZCP and CSL. Is ZCP and CSL referring to the type of wheels (ZCP = M3 competition package?) or is that the name of the wheel company???
As far as visuals..... do the replicas match the OEM almost exactly especially with the BMW center-caps and the "M" sticker since I notice most of the replicas have a indention where the "M" sticker is supposed to go? They look identical to me.
I just looked at the factory wheels and they are $2,000 and up.... ouch!!!! Now, I can totally understand why some of you guys might ask why am I going cheap with the wheels if I have an expensive car...... I totally understand that argument, but I was really wanting to spend the bulk of my "mod money" on an Gintani exhaust as opposed to wheels.
Can anyone shed some light on what CSL and ZCP is since I keep seeing it over and over?

Generally ZCP is the factory code for the competition package.

CSL I associate with coupe sport light (Coupe Sport Leichtbau, literally, "light built") , allthough I am not 100% sure that is correct in English. CSL used to be BMW's way of indicating higher performance/racing oriented model. Most recently I've seen it on E46 M3's:

219s


220s


260s


270s


359s




etc

I can source all factory wheels (that are still in production). Just let me know which ones like and I'll pull availability and pricing for you.

Not all wheels come with the M decal in place from BMW, this could be the issue. Or it could be another vendor trying to pass off the wheels are genuine BMW products when in fact they are reps.

I have said screw it as far as getting factory wheels unless I can find them used for a good price because the new ones are going for $2,000 plus!

As far as the style I really like the 359's and that is what I was looking into but I would be happy with the other styles such as the 219 especially if they were 19" wheels.

Worst case....I figured I could get a replica and put the "M" stickers on it.

I live in Greensboro, NC but would be willing to drive if someone has a deal on some used ones.

The 219s would look awesome in a 19, but sadly they only come in 18s.

The 359s run around $2514.68 a set in matte black (LINK) and $2409.95 a set in silver (LINK), so I understand what you mean. They are right in line with real genuine European BMW CSL wheels (LINK) as far as pricing goes.

Few ideas in the land of aftermarket to look at in a similar style to the 359s. VMR V710s (LINK) are rather similar they come in silver, black, and a few other custom shades but they lack the ///M decal divot. Alzor 725s (LINK) are rather close as well, they only come in hyper silver (but for the price paint/powder coat wouldn't be a big deal), unlike the VMRs they have the divot for a logo.

VMR V710


Alzor 725

Thanks for the information! I definitely want to have the divot where I can put the "M" decal on!
