17" wheels

Hey, guys. I've been going back and forth on ordering, or not ordering, wheels for my 135i for about 2 months now. Here's my dillema: i like the looks of the various CSL style wheels, however they only come in 18", 19" or bigger. For a bunch of reasons i'd really like to stay with 17" wheels. I was just wondering if anyone can point me in the direction of a manufacturer that offers CSL style(or any for that matter, i'm not deadset on csl) in 17" wheels? I did a forum and google search and just got a bunch of the OEM 17s.

Apex ARC-8 are not only 17" CSLs, but they are also very strong and light.

they're a little higher than the VMR offerings, but i guess for an "odd" size you've got to pay lol. I'll probably order a set if my W2s ever come in.

As you might suspect, BMW doesn't make wheels ;-)
BBS is their supplier of choice for many models. CSL style (8 parallel double spokes) looks somewhere between BBS CS4, CH, and maybe RGR wheels.

You would need to take a closer look at spokes' curvature from different angles to pick.


Google for BBS wheels, or look here:

thanks for the info, tscdennab has pointed me to the Apex Arc-8s. They're a very good looking wheel and i'm 99% sure that's what im going to order. If there is a vendor that carries those and can offer me a deal with TPS monitors and shipping i'm all ears
