Wheel ideas for a space grey z4

Hey guys, I got in an accident last week and 2 of my 296 rims were cracked and I am really sick and tired with them so I decided replace 4 of them..

What color or type would you guys recommend ?? I really love the bbs on z4s in general but just can not decide and I am in need of help..

Any pictures would be really appreciated..

A nice solution are the Avant Garde M355 (new M6 F12 replicas).
Available in 19" and 20".
Search them in Google, there are a lot of pics: http://www.mycarforum.com/index.php?...&product=50160

gunmetal looks really good! too bad OP's 296 cracks and i doubt he'd feel comfortable buying them again.

I have VMR 710s. they are nice in black.

I have avant Garde M359. I think it's a perfect fit. Size as offset
19x9 et 35 front 235/35/19
19x10 et 38 rear 265/35/19
Tires are a little stretch I would get 245 and 275 for next tires.

yes you are right, even though, I really liked the color, I would never put them on my car again..

I think I am going with the 313s..

I've seen a couple of Z4s with this style of wheels. Looked pretty good to me:

EDIT: Can't link to a certain vendor. Google "Eurosport 5371". Here's what it looks like:

It's the first 5 pics. Says Miro 942 (now discontinued), but it's the same style of wheels, which is the 335is wheels.

You can buy the 313's OEM from BMW, they are very expensive, but look fantastic. The good thing about OEM is that they have the e89 offsets. If you get reproduction 313's you'll probably have to fit spacers. I'm not a fan of spacers.

I have to say something to the dealership by today but damn they are asking 300 euros more than 296s for each rim.. hmm

313s are nice. How about HRE P40sc?

Sadly while trying to decide which rim to choose, i got in a pretty bad accident, luckily i made it out with minor injuries..

That being said, the car has a lot more value than it had before, so i will try to keep it as long as i can.. For now, i had to go with the original rims which were 296s, only thing that i can think of with those rims, is just to get them painted to gun metal color...

Car looks like it has no value, save scrap metal

If mine ever crack and need a new set, those would be the ones I would go for.

Tires are a little stretch I would get 245 and 275 for next tires.
Bumping an old thread and sort of off-topic, but I'm looking to get into a new set of shoes (19x9 et. 35 F and 19x10 et. 38 R - exactly the same spec as SNK). They recommend 235 F and 265 R, and I, too, don't really like stretched tires. I have the M-Sport package (lowered by 10mm) and I did some quick measurements, it looks like the wheel currently has about 1.5 inch clearance from the fender, max (when wheel is completely turned left or right). If I go 245s up front, I'd lose 1/3 inch clearance. That means I would only have about .75inches if even that (or about < 19mms). I know they won't rub from normal driving, but what about over speed bumps and potholes? Uneven roads? A little over half an inch clearance scares me on the not-so-perfect NJ roads (in terms of rubbing and hitting the fender... bubbles and bent rims I've come to accept ) Is anyone running the same set-up and have some problems with rubbing and clearance?
