i prefer the ritz because it's lighter, easier to clean, shows off brakes, simple clean design.

antler will look better in 20's

"trust your feelings" and use the "force" to make your decision, though

It's very likely you will get quite a few differing perspectives. There is a wheel available for every preference.

I humbly prefer the Antler design.

The choice is entirely yours.

RITZ. Slightly bias as they are similar to my VMRs. Antler is nice but the ritz with the thin spokes and extending to the lip edge will make them look bigger and have more of a presence.

Yeah I agree they just both look amazing. I only have shitty stock calipers so I'm afraid the ritz will show that to much. If I had brembo I would hands down go for them but idk it's a tough call

Yeah that's a big decision maker too. I do plan on ceramics coating the entire car including rims after winter so after that I don't think they will to much of a pain.

Agree on all accounts. My vote too. I like a more simple wheel design.

Yes I ended up going with Ritz. The Antler didn't have the widths and offsets I wanted in stock and were on backorder from Germany for 4-6 weeks. I also was skeptical about the matte portion as I'm a huge fan of high gloss. The following will be my setup. I chose this setup to get as aggressive as I could with keeping good fitment and to stay under the 1% difference for the awd sake. This setup is only a 0.4% difference.

2014 328D XDrive MSport Package

Wheels - Beyern Ritz:

Front - 18 x 8.5 35mm Offset
Rear - 18 x 9.5 45mm Offset

Tires - Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3:

Front - 245/40ZR18
Rear - 275/35ZR18

is your car lowered? if not, you may want to consider it. 245/40/18, 275/35/18 is 25.7" & 25.6" diameters and will increase your wheel gap.

if not lowered or planning on it, i would have chose 235/45/18, 265/40/18 conti dws06. taller sidewalls would reduce the wheel gap but look cause it to look beefier(which you may not like). however, since both front and rear tire diameters are 26.3", it'd still work for x-drive.

if you are lowered it's all good and it'll look epic

Yeah no I'm not lowered. I've never been a fan of lowering and I got a lot of mods that would ever come before it anyway.

I can't stand chrome so I did everything I could to black everything out. I actually wanted a white or blood red car but they are to rare in my area.
