Thinking of buying wheels for my m3. Saw this: $669 shipped for 19" CSL reps

Anyone have opinions?

Found these on ebay and seems like a really good price, even for reps.

Buy some csl reps from one of the site sponsors. Umnitza has them really cheap, and ECS Tuning has VMR wheels $100 off. I wouldn't trust the quality from those wheels on ebay.

Why buy an Ebay quality wheel when we have Sportline rotary forged CSL style wheels on sale for Black Friday/Cyber Monday! The Sportline CS.16's come in the classic CSL design but are now made using a rotary forged process; decreasing the weight and increasing the strength over the original cast CSL style wheels. This process gives you a wheel that is comparable to a fully forged wheel at a fraction of the price! They are on sale right now for a GREAT deal! Click here for the best pricing of the year!!!!





As always I am here to help out fellow fanatics so let me know if you have any questions!

Thanks for the input so far. Those CS.16s look sweet! I'm also thinking about some coilovers/or just a dampener and spring upgrade, but I can only do one or the other in the near term.

Too bad the CS16s aren't available in gunmetal. Leaning toward Alufelgen CS7s in gunmetal. Love the look on carbon black

Offset on those is a bit lazy for the E46 M3, you'll want something a good bit more aggressive especially out back. Now, if you're looking for a budget friendly CSLesk wheel check out the Alzor 725s (LINK), they are currently on sale as part of our holiday promotion. I also have Alzor 030s (similar style) in 18s and different offset 19s if you'd like to go less aggressive in offset or go to an 18 inch wheel.

725


030


Feel free to shoot me a PM if you need any help or have any questions,

-James

Ended up going with Sportline cs 16s

No gunmetal option, but they are light and seemed to be loved by the community.

You can always send them to get powdercoated! Great choice with the Sportlines!

I have couple sets of Alufelgen SF-71 in stock that I can get powdercoated free of charge for you. These specific SF-71s finishes are all mismatched from the factory and we are currently trying to blow them out to make more room for inventory.

I think I'll stick with the CS 16s. Even a slight deviation from the CSL style just doesn't look right to me

Another great option as well! I have the same kind of promotion on the CS7 but only on a non-staggered 19x8.5 ET35mm setup.
