330 Sports Pacakge wheels and tires

Iíll come right to the point. The 325 has enough power for me, the only thing that I absolutely don't like are the wheels that come with the sport package. (No offense to anybody who has them, I just love the look of the 18ís.) I want the wheels that are on the 330 Sports package. Iíve never dealt with a BMW dealer before, can I special order (what will this cost) the 330 wheel and tire combo on a 325?

Also, Is the spring rate and dampening the same on both cars with the sports package or is the 330 firmer? Thanks for any help.

Also, I know BMW has tuned the 325 to handle with 17Ē wheels, do you think putting the 18ís that are on the 330 would effect the balance?

Go here: http://www.bmwwheels.com/bmwwheels.asp to order the rims new. The dealer will Rape you if you want to buy from them.

I believe the spring rate and height are the exact same between the 330 and 325 sport suspensions.

No, it wouldn't affect the balance because the entire wheel diameter doesn't change when you go to larger rims. It's refered to as 'plus sizing' when you put lower profile tires on larger rims.

I bought my wheels from bmwwheels.com last week (style 162-the same from the 330 sport package). They got all the way to me in DC in less than a week and I had them installed this morning. It really does make a BIG difference in looks over the standard wheels on the 325. I would definitely recommend it...

Couldn't agree more with you. I'm also a future E90 owner (hopefully) and I think this new car is gorgeous... but with nice big mags. Unfortunatly I find the car's 17 inches make it look wimpy (don't me, it's my 1st post and it's just my opinion) and it needs a nice set of 18 inches to look good and proportionate. Can't wait to see what type of mags the Xi models will have (both the 330 and 325).
