I will say though, they are possibly the nicest 18s I've seen from BMW ever, congrats anyone staying with them. 19s standard in the uk so the black 19s for me.

I thought it would look better in mineral grey. Maybe it's the lighting, I'm trying to decide between mineral grey and SSII. 18s look good!

with a little drop and spacers this would be sweet... I think MG looks great here, too.

The rubber is less profile than the 19's which gives this a great look.

Best MG photos to date, thank you! I had 18's on my order for the first few months, but all those photos of the 19s over and over really made me fall for the silvers. MG would have been my second choice, but went with black. It's also really nice to see more pics of the stanard blue four-piston brakes that most of us will get. So gald BMW finally got Brembos standard!

Thanks for the photos.

Would've have loved to see a front shot.

They do! There is a 19" version of these for the "winter". I forget where the link is, but I love them!

Edit, found it! 641M...my new favorite number!

So great to see this. Can't make up my mind on any of my config.

So are the 18's all ferric gray or what? The configurator looks like they're silver, and there's no box to check or option for ferric, but every time I see the 18s they're ferric gray.

It's nice but something is off to me giving it a less striking appearance, I think the wheels are just too small for the size of the car and the aggressive body work. The color seems to work well though.

Interesting. I think the thin blade spokes of the 18s fit the aggressive body style much better than the 19s. This wheel in 19/20" with aggressive width and offset would be perfect for me, especially in ferric gray.

Mineral Grey looks Fantastic.
I'm really loving this style and color wheel.

Why don't they sell this wheel as a lightweight 19"?
I am assuming that the 19" winter wheel version is not necessarily lightweight.

Anyone know the wheel weights of the standard 19", this 18"and this style in the 19" (winter)?
