It reminds me of a darker version of BMW's own chrome shadow they used to have on the E39 M5.

When it comes to wheels, I like to be somewhere in the middle when it comes to the finish. I don't want a boring silver, but don't want green wheels either. These and brushed finishes fit the bill for me.

It is pretty special and agreed re not sure with Yellow - the black might honestly look better - they have a special gloss black in this design just can't recall right now the name they use.

Would work wonders on a Long Beach Blue M2, but not sure how it would look on an Austin Yellow M3.

Sorry didn't see this earlier, you are correct...That color is a tint over a diamond cut (fine brushed face).

The RZ is made of Adamantium.

The difference is in the contouring of the spokes. I think the shape and radius of the concavity is the same though. I was told it's an "evolution of the RS41".

I asked the swiss distributor if BC is going to offer their wheels in Germany as well (as it's a far bigger market) but they denied... pity...hope they think it over...
Has there been any reports of BC Forged wheels failing? I know they are made in Taiwan, but that doesn't mean they arent quality.

That looks great. We could definitely use wheel specs and full side profile shot of the car!

Thanks! These pics show exactly why I prefer 19s over 20s on this car. Looks stunning.

I'm assuming 275/295 tires?

You got it. 275/35 and 295/35 MPSS Rubber. Rears are actually an m5 oem rear tire. The front ones are F8x oem rear tires.
