you need a wheel with a big lip

if you want a sport look on a coupe like a m3. and if you like get the center custom painted in your body color to if you want a sporty look to. hre wheels are very good. but could be pricey in 20"
size unless you buy them in the tire and wheel for sale forum.........

you need a wheel with a good lip

to give your m3 a nice sporty look. hre makes nice pimp facter wheels but could get pricey. but if you look in the wheel and tire for sale forum you can get a good deal on a set of 20" wheels.

20's are MASSIVE, i've seen an M3 look like a hot wheels car when the wheel gets to obtrusive, so keep it a bit discrete i'd say.

you can go 9 x 10 still, but it gets tricky

look for something a bit edgy but not too flashy


or if you want 19's check my sig for a killer deal

Found my 20 in wheels for 03 M3 Convert

Thanks for all the advice. I went with a 20X8.5 and 20X10 setup. They look great! I would say 20's the only way to go. The look is just unbelievable. being able to achieve a 5 in lip on m3 wheels is just sick.


Thanks
