My 2023 M8 Comp Coupe Got Some New Shoes!! BBS LM's Gold Centers

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Ok so Im impulsive and case in point was the actual purchase of this car; sourced it at the port and took it 3 days later. One day after delivery it was lowered and had some other mods.

Now I do like the OEM 810M's but Im bored as F here in October 2022 LOL so I called my good friend and owner of supremepower Eric yesterday early morning and asked this:

What wheels can you get where I can use my OEM tires and not wait more than 1 week. Mind you, I know this limits my choices and creativity but he came back with this pic within 5 minutes:




About an hour later, my car was there and I made the move. So they are:

BBS LM's with the gold center face
20x10 front
20x11 rear
Using OEM 275x35 front tires and 285x35 rears.

So LM's, to me, are iconic and this is my 4th set. Are they the perfect wheel, hell no, but they fit what I wanted: a racing heritage look that retained the stock tires and made my stealthy, sleek M8 more racey with some class to add. I do understand the LM's are not cut to order so they need spacers in most cases and the step lip can create the optical illusion of a smaller wheel but this works for me 100%. Again big thanks to Eric, Will, Kim and the Supreme Team (Fullerton, CA) for the hook. Eric has worked on so many of my cars: Ferraris, Lambo, Bentley, Porsches, BMW's, Benzes, etc that he is definitely a go to for things like this along with Big Ben aka RGSport. They are equal to the task.

Some cell phone shots (more to come outside):

Well played Vic, well played. This set up looks spectacular on the white. I honestly don't think any other color would pull this off as well.

PS...My Vossens arrive today (same as what's on your Plaid).

Did you get them from Ben?

You will love them too- and I agree, the light gold really works well on white with the red caps and red calipers. I think silver is one of the few colors where light gold doesnt fly.

Thanks Dr T---

LM's definitely are more racey in appearance = motorsport style.

It works great on the coupe but they would look too small and not fit the GC optically IMHO.

I dont cheat on people who feed me, but I do feed multiple people that have supported me over the years. Loyalty can be spread like a hookers legs when appropriate.

All joking aside I asked you what was your fastest delivery and you told me 6 weeks. I asked Eric and he told me 6 minutes.

Now I do like the OEM 810M's but Im bored as F here in October 2022 LOL so I called my good friend and owner of supremepower Eric yesterday early morning and asked this:

What wheels can you get where I can use my OEM tires and not wait more than 1 week. Mind you, I know this limits my choices and creativity but he came back with this pic within 5 minutes:




About an hour later, my car was there and I made the move. So they are:

BBS LM's with the gold center face
20x10 front
20x11 rear
Using OEM 275x35 front tires and 285x35 rears.

So LM's, to me, are iconic and this is my 4th set. Are they the perfect wheel, hell no, but they fit what I wanted: a racing heritage look that retained the stock tires and made my stealthy, sleek M8 more racey with some class to add. I do understand the LM's are not cut to order so they need spacers in most cases and the step lip can create the optical illusion of a smaller wheel but this works for me 100%. Again big thanks to Eric, Will, Kim and the Supreme Team (Fullerton, CA) for the hook. Eric has worked on so many of my cars: Ferraris, Lambo, Bentley, Porsches, BMW's, Benzes, etc that he is definitely a go to for things like this along with Big Ben aka RGSport. They are equal to the task.

Some cell phone shots (more to come outside):

Actually they came in this fitment but I was told BBS has finally made some reasonable changes vs the past where one had to do some extensive spacer mods.
