+another.

I also think you're messing with weird fitment. The front tires look stretched a bit. I personally do not like spacers: I cannot get over the idea that they weaken the attachment of the rims to the hubs.

I freaking love those wheels. I dont feel the need to change wheels for now as my stockers look good on a silvergrey M3. But if I ever change my wheels those Apex are the ones I will go with. They make the M look viscious.

I like them, and if it wasn't for that license plate, I'd say someone stole my car, put these wheels on for pictures and returned it the same way I left it in the driveway.

Speak with Jurrian at ModBargains, he'll take care of you!

They "fit" the car. I think the 10" wheel will look awesome.

Those are awesome wheels and they look sweet on a lowered m3. But if your M3 is not lowered those will not look as good as CSL rep wheels. Just my opinion that is.

Wheels look fine. My first thought is "that's going to be a b*tch to keep clean". My CSL/ZCP wheels are just are tough to get into all the corners. Just something to keep in mind.
