Thumbs up E46 M3: Favorite Wheel Setups

Hey guys,

Post a few pics of your favorite setups. Honestly looking for a little Carbonschwarz inspiration but all colors are welcome.

There may be similar threads but a bunch are older and the pics no longer work - in addition wheel trends have changed somewhat and so has people's taste (for the naysayers)...

Without further adieu...

Mine are a couple of local guys..





Let's see them!

I'm 100% biased, but I really enjoy my 18" RAC RG63s. Perfect sizes and offsets for street setups without any spacers, super strong, clears the BBK without any spacers, 18 lbs front, 19 lbs rear, fits BMW center caps.

Personally I find the ZCP/CSL rims to be on another level compared to everything else. They're some of the most beautiful rims ever made, in my opinion. Unfortunately they're not offered in 18's and going from 19's to 18's was such a massive increase in comfort that I can't imagine going back.

I run 18x10 +25 OZ Challenge Wheels as a square setup. This size and offset seem to be fairly common as a "go to" setup for the E46 M3.

RG-Rs are great wheels. I probably would have never taken them off my M3 if they cleared the BBK.

I am still running RG-Rs on the M3 wagon and M5









And before I was able to track down a set in 17", I had 18" RG-Rs on the wagon:



And back before I realized how much better 18s were than 19s on the m3, I had 19" RG-Rs on it:
