This saturday, this handsome BMW E93 M3 Cabrio popped by the shop to be fitted with a new set of shoes. Black with black hardtop and black interior, can you guess what color the wheels were? The new footwear for this E93 M3 Cabrio is a set of HRE FF01 Wheels for BMW, finished in Tarmac, creating the perfect triple-black aesthetic. When it comes to wheels, the fitment and offset is critical, especially for a BMW, where your fitment changes dramatically depending on whether it’s a 3-series, M3, xi and so on – fortunately the Mod Experts – our ‘wheel wizards’ as it were – know the offsets for late model BMWs better than the back of their hands.
These HRE Performance Wheels were spec’d out at 19×9 ET25 up front and 19×10.5 ET26 in the rear for the HRE FF01 Wheels, and as anyone who’s ever lost a drag race due to spinning the tires will tell you, power’s nothing without grip – and the sticky stuff comes in the form of Michelin Pilot Super Sports, 255/35-19 on the front and 295/30-19 in the rear to keep the rear end planted when that ///M-Power V8 screams towards redline.

The concavity of the FF01 is a great complement for the offsets the M3’s wider fenders allow, and the tarmac finish ties into the black paint wonderfully.
Despite the pouring rain this saturday on a black car, the photos came out pretty well and we’re happy we could share them with you guys.
Thanks for reading!
