Can the BMW M4 Pull Off a Classic Set of Wheels?

When you see an E30 M3 on the street chances are you’re going to see it wearing BBS’s classic RZ weave wheels and they fit it perfectly. Be it because they come from the same era or maybe even because we got used to seeing them wearing those ‘shoes’ but they fit. Could the new M4 pull it off as well?

A lot of people have been complaining about the dull styling of the wheels put out by BMW these days and the company noticed that, announcing more and more styles for its alloy rims. Starting with March this year, the 2, 3 and 4 Series range will be getting some new ones so you might have more choices on the table.

But those won’t be enough for a lot of people and aftermarket tuners are in for a quick buck. I recently stumbled upon an interesting photo gallery and I had to share it with you and also ask a question.

What you see below is an Austin Yellow BMW M4 wearing some HRE 501 Conical wheels that have the same weave motif as the BBSs I was talking about above, regarding the E30 M3. However, unlike on the E30, where 17 inches were considered huge, these rims measure 20x10 inches up front and 21x11.5 inches in the back.

So, do you think the M4 can pull this off or is the design simply too old for the age of this car? Would you fit such wheels on your M car or a more modern approach would be better? Let us know in the comments section below.
