Majority of the E46 community jump for the most affordable great looking wheel out there. The more R&D and the more pieces it takes to manufacturer, the costs will go up.

The V710's are def my favorite; I would rock a set in hyperblack.

You guys should do a wheel that's an "homage" to the BBS LM (or one of the various BBS Modular Race wheels), and offer it as a true two-piece wheel with relatively easily interchangable centers. A step lip, staggered (offer the option of 9.5" or 10" rears for non-M's!), interchangeable centers or "faces" (you could buy an extra set, and have one that's silver and one that's gold, for example), light-weight (less than 22lbs front/23lbs rear staggered), and offers clearance for BBK's. Shiii... With interchangeable centers, you could actually change the offset slightly, allowing for a more aggressive set-up for track/auto-x, and a less aggressive set-up so you can tuck 'em for the street/shows. If this could be done, and the wheels cost under $1600 initially, and then $500-800 per set of new "centers", you could make a killing, as well as have perhaps the best aftermarket wheel ON the market for our cars! You could sell the barrels in different styles, too: step-lip, reverse-lip, polished (bare/clear-coated), black (satin/matte/gloss), Hyperblack, Hypersilver, Time-Attack (custom-colored) etc... The faceplates could be had in truly limitless configurations, though I would start with an LM-replica face and offer something like the following options: Hypersilver, Hyperblack, Matte Black, Bronze, Gold, Polished, or Brushed Aluminum.
Doing this, you can basically add hundreds of dollars of options when ordering, so $1600 wheels become $2500 wheels when you want Satin black step-lipped 19" staggered (19x8.5"F and 19x10"R) with a HyperBlack face and Red centercap.

PLEEEAAASE! I'll buy the first set!

You're in luck, I do have a few photos of that.

This is a custom powdercoat but what the V710s in black will look like:





As for AW with Black CSLs (not the best pictures though )





Hope that helps!

Thanks. I'm not sure what I want to go with, but I think I'm leaning more towards the V710's. When do they come out in black?

If the pics are being posted everywhere, that means they ARE being repped very well!
