I was thinking about getting some cheaper replica style rims, but just can NOT find any that I like, and am rather fussy with things like this, so I thought stuff it, I'll just get some nice 3 peice forged wheels.

Car is a white sedan, and will have an M Tech kit with Rieger sides and CS splitters, or maybe an M3 front, or CSL front (ain't decided on that yet either!) and will be slammed (tucking rim in a big way).

I am STUCK between the following three rims. All with reverse lip, not step lip and rivetless.

DPE GT7 - http://www.dpe-wheels.com/showroom_web/main.php?g2_itemId=217
DPE R16 - http://www.dpe-wheels.com/showroom_web/main.php?g2_itemId=229
DPE S20 - http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthread.php?t=559596&highlight=s20

Then we have the issue of finish - http://www.beastpower.com/products/dpe/dpe-finishes.gif
I'm leaning towards gold or just normal silver....

Oh and then I need to work out if i want 19s or 20s. What do people think? I'm kinda leaning towards there S20.... :str8pimpi I don't usually like these kinda threads but I'm stuck!

Hrmm, and those S20's listed are actually for sale. If only I could work out some reasonably priced shipping...

S20s mate they look bloody awesome.

How much are they gonna set you back?

Can you get them in gold?

Alpine white with gold rims = :str8pimpi

If not gold - the colour in the link that you attached is also very cool.

Can you point me in that direction? I can't find any similar rims anywhere as nice!

Ended up buying Linea Corse Z2S, which will have the lip polished and centre painted gold.

Haven't got them as yet. Won't be fitted for about a month, going to wait until all my parts arrive. Will post pics when they are on.
