Looking for pics of 18's on e90's

I can't seem to find very many pics of e90's with 18's. I'm stuck with 18" wheels because of the roads around here so post em up! I really like the VB3's, but considering they're always back-ordered, I would like to see what else looks good. Thanks!


(P.S. - Preferably Montego Blue )

Factory 162's on sport suspension. I like the 18" a lot. Considering the roads, 18 is as big as I will go. I just drove from Indianapolis to Hackensack/NJ and back, the ride was quite good for a "low profile" tire size. 18 is a great mix of sport with comfort.
Other than 189's, I cannot find a 18" wheel aftermarket or stock that I like as much.

I am in the same boat as you. I've been digging for a decent set of 18"s for over a year now. I've started bugging some of the wheel manufacturers that advertise here to start making 18" versions of their wheels.

Here are some suggestions for you to ponder on:

* BBS CH - very strong wheels, but bit on the heavy side.
* Apex Arc-8 - very strong wheels but light at the same time. They are excellent wheels for the track.
* Schmidt Revolution Space Line - Those would be total hotness on a E90 but they are bit heavier than stock. Strong wheels
* Rotiform Nue 3-piece Concave - Bit expensive, but DAMN NICE!
* CCW Classic - I saw a few of them in person in Eurowerks and the workmanship of CCWs is astonishing!
* Yokohama Advan TCIII - New wheel for 2011. Gorgeous design. Light and strong. Unfortunately it does not accept any center caps and is bit pricey.
* SSR Professor SP3
* Work Meister SR1 - new design for 2011
* Fifteen52 has released a new super nice wheel - Tarmac. They are bit heavy and only come in 8.5 widths but they are gorgeous.


I am also hoping that very soon Morr will start making wheels in 18's

Whatever happened to SSR? I thought they went out of biz years ago. I had the GT10's on my Mustang GT, loved them.

BTW, the SP3 looks a lot like the much cheaper (and very light) one-piece O.Z. Alleggerita HLT, which also comes in 18".

I feel the exact way. Can't roll with 19s with NYC roads. No way.

8.5" et30 225/40 and 9.5" et32 255/35, with 12.5mm spacers front and back on eibach sportlines. i personally like 18s because they dont make my brakes look small. although i believe 19s would fill more wheel well, im thinking about running 245/40 and 265/35 next time i buy tires.

With 245/40 and 265/35, won't your fronts be almost half an inch taller than your rears?
