Nah! M's need sliver wheels NOT Bronze!
Just my opinion!

The guy with the wagon - 0 clearance with those shoes! Careful! No potholes!

nah, it shares a similar spoke pattern with the bbs rxII however it has stepped lip instead of a soft lip... a friend of mine told me they were centerline/dynatech. but cant find anything under those items...





BBS LM-R is a close match too:




option 2:

Option 2 (first pic) is nice...if you can get them ( these are very limited )...last pick is ugly ( sorry jmho) unless you get the Original Hamman PG series...

very ltd. and very expensive... trying to do the wheel shopping now, this way for spring/summer its all ready to go. but working out as planned.

im not sure i like the last wheel, but posting more so for opinion on that style... (5 star, five spoke whatever the kids are calling it these days idk). i welcome honest opinion, if its ugly say it, i dont mind... rather now then when on the car and wallets empty. lol.

if you want a five spoke -- check Fikse... the profil 5 and profil 5s

local m5er (whatheheck) has a LMB M5 with shiny silver Fikse Profil 5s and it looks great!

5 spoke wheels need BBK to look good -- stock POS calipers look pretty crappy and a 5 spoke makes that all the much more apparent... IMHO
