Wheel recommendations

Hi I was wondering what kind of alloy wheels would go well with a stock E90 325i? I'm kinda planning to buy a set, yet I need to know what would look good enough without lowering suspension for now... kinda tight on dough right now

Most if not all of the budget priced aftermarket wheels are inferior to the stock wheels supplied by BMW. They are generally heavier and the offset may not be optimum.

I like the OEM style 158 wheel. Looks good, is easy to keep clean and is of high quality. Try to find an 330xi sports owner who wnat´s to sell his set.

I agree. its takes patience to find the one you like and at the best possible price. Takeoffs may be your best bet, since they may be comparable in price to after-market wheels plus you get the runs too. And its the most sought after runflats

Winter would be the best time to keep an eye on those takeoffs, keep watch the Forums classifieds and maybe craigslist.

Question

1er120i ...

I also have a 325i with no sport package. Are the 158's OEM only? I'm I correct that the only option from BMW would be the 159's from a non-sport 330i?

Thanks for the help!
