I want to clarify. There are 3 color styles but I am unaware which will be options. Look at the NAIAS (detroit) pictures.

EDIT: Upon looking at the black wheel option again I may very well be incorrect. I think some of the photos I saw the lighting makes things look like they are just a flat black. BMW's website 360 configuration also looks this way.

The Black M4 has the two tone black and aluminum colored wheels
The Yellow M4 has an all black colored wheel
The Blue M3 has standard silver colored wheels

Also we have yet to see the design for the 18 inch wheel

The 19" silver wheels (..two tone) will likely look very similar to the two tone color on my AG 355M's:

FWIW, I think BMW did a lackluster job on the new wheels. I want to see the E9X's ZCP wheels against the F8X sheet metal.

That's a good close up (now I can see the two tone color). I usually like darker wheels but I might have to go with the silver option this time.

Nothing will ever beat a CSL style wheel IMO.

Not sure which picture you looked, but both black and yellow M4 from Detroit have same two tone black wheel.

Also, it looks like 19 inch wheel will be standard for M3 and M4.

It seems it's too shiny and shows too much contrast.

Standard 18" wheel style

Does anyone have a picture of the 18" wheels that come on the base M3?

Based on UK and Canada order guide, it looks like 19 inch will be std on M3/M4.
If this is true, they will probably not offer 18 inch wheel.

The silver ones seen on the M3 are the ones I've ordered, they are the same colour as the wheels on my X6, ferric grey.

19s are standard in the UK.

I sure hope so. I'm going to the auto show this weekend so I can check it out in person and report back

This leads me to believe that it is just reflection looking at the back wheel. I'll try to take photos when I am there with no flash and have my buddies crowd around the wheel to block the Cobo lighting.

Does anyone know what the wheel offsets are? I have a set of TE37s on my E90 M3 that I would like to transfer over to an M4 if they fit.

I waws pretty disapointed that the "black" wheel option is this two tone look... i mean with a black car it looks okat but I would probably end up powdercoating the whole thing black. Would have to see.

They should fit.

Could be a future Comp.Package wheel.1

On USD pricing in another thread they list the 20" wheels as optional at $1,200.

I looked at some M3 spyshots.
This may be 18 inch v-spoke wheel.
It will most likely be painted in silver.
