Have you pulled one off to see if there is any stamping or info? I am pretty sure I have seen those before, I think they are a pretty good quality wheel if I remember correctly....... I will hit you back if I figure it out. B

Thanks everyone for the kind words. I will probably end up staying with these. Like I said, they have grown on me a lot. I wanted wheels with a stepped lip on them, it's just more of my taste in wheels but the more I look at my car as I walk up to it and wash them etc.... I am really liking them, just wish I knew what they were so when people ask me about them I could tell them more info insted of I don't know.

They are staggered 19's, but thats all i can say. I'm not sure how wide they are. I can see that they are staggered when I am washing the barrels of the wheels during a wash job. So you think they are m3 wheels, do you know what they are called or from what year maybe. They are very clean and fresh, if they are not new they sure don't have a lot of miles or wear on them.

That is it! Thank you so much for the help. I tried searching but couldn't ever find anything, but this is for sure the wheel on my M3 except in a charcoal finish.
