For the track? Or everyday use? Do you care much about looks?

There are many awesome light weight/forged Jap racing rims available that are best suited for the track....

Why 19s if they are your track rims? Or are you looking for a street/track setup?

I would go with the rays brand, they have good styles that will also suit the bimmer.

I need 19's chaps to get over the calipers not fussed about looks. Light weight and aggressive offset are the main criteria.

Chris got ya message but I'm not leaving the wife for you, and please stop asking as its getting a little weird

Well if you want some lightweight forged rims as mentioned some TE37's would be nice, they are around $1200 each in 19" apps new or you could buy something used like a set of oem M3 rims (how aggressive are you talking on offsets?)

Find a set of Advan RS if you can. Would need to be a used set for your price range though. Otherwise Forgestars are also fairly light and decently priced too. If you wanna go all out then BBS GT4 (i think) is another option.
