I recall reading somewhere that the wheels all weigh in the vicinity of 20-23 lbs (BMW catalog?), with the forged lightest and the Contours and 10 spokes on the other end and about the same. Even though it is a rotating and not static weight, I am not sure this is much of a performance issue. On the other hand, a 1 pound wheel weight difference on a mountain bike is HUGE.

: I am about to order a new M3 Coupe, I've decided on Titanium Silver with a black interior. I'm having trouble choosing the wheels though. The M Contours look nice, but so do M Double Spoke Polished (wheels from the M3 Lightweight). What do you guys think? Are there any advantages getting either wheel? Aesthetically which do you think would look better on a Silver M3. Thanks in advance.
