They all are pretty sick. I think it boils down to which once you personally prefer. Pick between two and then have a poll here if you are still feeling stuck. I wish they would list their HIGH prices on their site.

First pic is my favorite...

Also, I'm not sure but I don't think the 19x10 fits on a non-M e46. I want a staggered set, so 19x8 or 19x8.5 front and 19x9 or 19x19.5 rear. Do you make these sizes (other than the 19x8 which is already available)?

prices are the same for all styles. it is the size and finish that determine the difference in cost.


19x10 has fit on the coupes we've done. we also offer 19x9 as of recent. contact www.supremepowerparts.com for more information.

I think R05 Variant S in 20's must look ridiculously sick on an m3...cant wait for someone to sport those... the spokes dont go to the edge so it will be perfect for 5 spokers in 20s or 19s! with rivets or not and brushed or titanium asphalt!

the design of the varint S in the R05 is just unbelievably classy yet agressive

These wheels don't have rivets. I just checked the DPE and supremepowerparts sites and don't see any wheels without the rivets. Are these available?

personally, on a dark blue car i would either go brushed aluminum, silver, titanium asphalt, or platinum graphite.

can never go wrong with brushed!
