E46 m3 csl rims

Im looking to buy csl style rims for my e46 m3 was wanting to know if there are any decent replicas the same size as the stock fronts and rears or if it would be worth it to just buy the oem csl rims, i noticed the replicas dnt have the slot for the m3 badge or atleast the ones ive seen so far

We make a pretty solid looking CSL style wheel with a spot for the M badge. The sizing isn't exactly the same as the OEM ones but they'll still fit on your E46 M3 regardless.

VMR is an excellent company, and their VB3/CSL wheels are extraordinary. Had a set on for the longest time, along with two other VMR wheels in their line up for several years, never had a problem, always got looks from other guys who wanted these wheels. Truly a great set, and for the cost, you're right, it can't get any better than these. And since we're VMR's largest stocking distributor, we can help out even better with mounting/balancing tires, and getting wheel/tire packages shipped to your door:


If you have any questions, feel free to ask, but click the banner above for VMR's line up! - 714.582.3330 extension 8002, ask for Jurrian if you have any questions!

I think it may be a pound and a crown for the OEM CSL wheels. Being that the CSL was never released in North America, that sounds like a dealer only buy and like we said POUND AND A CROWN may even an arm, leg and nut too!

But wait modbargains has them "Straight from germany" but VMR"S ARE BETTER IN MY EYES AND POCKET! and they have the concave version too More than likely those would be my first choice!
for ex.


These are the 703's
I'm from Brooklyn so 718 is the only logical and aesthetical choice!!
Hope you post pics here when you choose and slap them on.

If you are looking for the lightest/strongest CSL replicas, check out the Sportline CS.16 wheels:



For your E46 M3, you would run a 19x8.5 ET35m in the front & 19x9.5 ET22m in the rear. All Sportline CS.16 are spunforged, powdercoated silver, and have the perfect offsets to make sure that it sits flush to your fenders:
