CSL Style Wheels
 
Hi guys,

I saw a car the other day that looked really impressive on some (presumably replica) CSL wheels. I have little to no experience with wheels, so I was wondering if you might help me identify their size and colour. I know this would be hard from the pictures when trying to estimate the size of the wheel by the gap between the wheel and the car because the car could be lowered, but that's all I have to go on.

What are the dimensions of these? I have always wanted to lower my car, but have never settled on the right method. One reason is to close the gap between the front fender and the wheel, and the other is to have the sleeker look of a lowered car.

Wheel Gap:

If I put larger wheels on (like I believe these are) I assume it'll close the gap, and actually give me less room to lower my car. Is this correct?

Thanks for your help!

If you put larger wheels on, the gap will actually seem to be bigger just because of how they look on the car. Your only way to change that gap would be to lower the car with either springs, or coilovers.

As for those wheels you saw, they look like they could be E92 M3 competition package wheels, or Avant Garde M359's which we have listed below. But if you're looking for an all around good CSL style wheel, we've got tons of options to consider all below the M359 below:

They look like 19's and they look like a square setup. They're color? Idk dirty.
You'll have to look around on sponsors sites too see what colors they offer or have them painted after the fact.
Also those look a little different than the typical csl style I see and also own. The original style is a little rounder and less square if that makes sense.
