wheel dilemma - which to choose (bbs e88, bbs fi/ri-d, or volk te37sl)

so, I am in the market for some new wheels, and am having a really hard deciding on which to get;

I have narrowed it down to three choices.

bss e88 in 18" (would get to select whatever width and offset I want as well as colour; standard silver, or gold, or even custom colours)

(show on a 993)



bbs fi/ri-d(japan equivalent of fi but even lighter) I would have to go 19" in these;

(shown on 1m)



ray's volk te37sl in 18"

(shown on e86 z4m)



*thanks in advance for everyones input; wheels will be going on a 2008 bmw m coupe in sapphire black metallic.

bbs fi/ri-d as well, assuming it is going on your 2008 m3.

But... not 18''.

Get a 20'' if you can.

Not a fan of rotor wheels (3rd one).

He said he would get those ones in 19".

I am also with the others, those wheels are hot.

That wheel looks good on the 1M, should also look good on your M Coupe.

I think he means the Z4 M coupe not the M3. Its not hard to find pictures of those BBS's on an M3.

I could be wrong though.

No Volks on a BMW please. The FI/RI-D is pretty damn badass, would be a great looking wheel on an M Coupe.

I would go for the bbs fi/ri-d as well. Sort of looks like the M359 wheels just with less spokes

For what car?

If it is a modern car the BBS FI is the king! For an older car or a track-ready look the BBW E88 is amazing. The Volks are sweet but...

"2008 bmw m coupe"

My answer is BBS E88 built with lips as deep as possible!

thanks to everyone who voiced an opinion, i change my mind frequently on what to get, but bbs europe/germany did a limited run of only 10 sets of 18" FI's, there is a mint used set I have purchased, I just hope the front offset is not too overly aggressive....the rear I will be fine with, the front maybe slightly overkill.
