Staying on top of the latest trends is a must for anyone into aftermarket wheels (I admit, car guys can be as bad with wheels as girls can get with their shoe collections – and if you think about it they’re both “shoes”), and so we thought we’d have a look at the five most popular wheels for BMW we offer right now. Keep in mind that these aren’t listed in any particular order, these are simply the most popular at the moment. Check out the styles below.
The M359 has become something of Avant Garde’s new claim to fame and available in sizes ranging from 18″-20″, these wheels fit E90, E92, E93, F10, E85 Z4M, E46 M3, E9X M3 and E60 chassis BMW models and in either Matte Black or Hyper Silver. Featuring low-pressure cast construction, these are stronger AND lighter than most OEM wheels and offer a more aggressive stance and look.
The VB3 offers people BMW CSL style at a reasonable price. Our own CEO Mike Brown runs a set of VMR VB3 wheels on his own personal car, and has had great luck with them years and years down the line and customers have reported time and again on their durability. If you’re looking for a CSL style wheel, these are right up your alley. Available in 19″ diameter and in 5×112 and 5x120mm lug patterns ensure a fitment for your particular Bimmer.
The Forgestar F14 remains one of the most popular wheels on the market, and it’s obvious why: This wheel looks good on virtually anything, whether it’s a Mustang or an ///M3, F14s will look positively amazing. Forgestars are Flow-Formed (Forged), as opposed to lesser methods like low-pressure casting. Forged Wheels are generally speaking, the strongest and lightest type of wheel manufacture. While we do stock a large number of F14s in stock in the most popular lug-patterns and offsets, Forgestars are a true “custom” wheel and are usually made to order, producing wheels to spec for each vehicle and can be had in several ranges of concavity to go as deep or shallow as you’d like. Check out our Gallery of installed Forgestar F14’s here. Don’t forget to take a look at the Frozen Blue M3 we shot on Super Deep F14′s a while back.
The Alufelgen SF-71 is another wheel we often keep in stock here at ModBargains, and it remains one of the faster moving wheels that we offer. Alufelgens are cast type wheels and are available in fitments for the E82/E87/E88 1-series, E46, E90, E91, E92 and E93 chassis M3, E60/E61 5-Series and the Z3M/Z4M. These wheels satisfy strict JWL and VIA standards to ensure a quality wheel.
Avant Garde M310
Yep, Avant Garde is so nice it made the list twice. Available in sizes ranging from 18″-22″ (for those who really want to go big). Like the M359, the M310 is a low-pressure cast wheel, which is stronger and lighter than the OEM wheel, and additionally, the M310 carries a much higher load rating than most other low pressure cast wheels on the market today.
