OEM, imo!!!

i have so many photos of 1Ms saved....plenty with aftermarket wheels and none of them even come close to the OEM wheel IMO. So aggressive and perfect for this car.

I think 1M stock rims look so nice already..

Wish I had those on my 135IS...I don't really like 313 style that much.

Do they make the stock OEM wheels in different factory finishes? A gunmetal gray for example?

The 359s are available in Satin Black from BMW. This was an option with the M3 Competition Package.

I love OEM as well but would like to see what these would look like on either VO/BSM/AW. These all look similar but I really like this style.

^^ All excellent choices above

Thought I'd mix it up a bit with a non-mesh style option:

You really can't go wrong. Whatever you like, it's your car!! That being said I'm a fan of the Apex wheels and what they have to offer.

IMHO the best 1M wheels would have been a gunmetal version of the stock 1M wheels (359 M Y-spoke Competition wheels, which are actually simply the silver version of the black E92 M3 GTS wheels). Too bad that BMW never offered these great 19" wheels in a gunmetal finish too.

More pictures of this car (not mine):
