BMW Style 230 wheels on E85 M Roadster

As the title says, I put some style 230 wheels on my Z4M... I am not sure I like them as much as the Enkei RPF1 that were on the car previous, so I might go back. Any thoughts?
If I keep the 230, I will definitely add 10-12mm spacers on the back!

I also have a few pics of my other sets of wheels.

I've always loved these on 335i's as standard.. they look good on the roadster but definitely need some spacers. ///M cars need ///M wheels or aftermarket But looks good!

They look a bit plain, and very OEM. I prefer the Enkei's

Thanks for the comments! After a few days of reflection, I have decided to stick with the Enkei's... I'll probably put the 230s on my grey roadster which will should look a little more natural than on the red one (the grey car is completely stock)

Pictures 5 and 7 are not my choice. Pic 6 looks real nice on that car.

You can send me the wheels from pics 1-4 . . . I am sure those will look decent on my Jet Black Z4

They are now on the grey car (which is for sale locally)... I think it looks much better than on the red.

I have also added 12.5mm spacers to the rear wheels since the pic was taken.

What size are your wheels in gold? 18's? And are you on coilovers?

The gold Forgestar wheels are 18x9 front, and 18x10 rear. The car is on H&R coilovers, and has no rubbing issues at all.

Unfortunately, I don't know the offset of the wheels, but probably something like +35 front, +25 rear.
