I need help choosing wheels.

I need something with a black finish. I prefer mesh style wheels. I want something like the maya stm but I dont want to spend more than $1000(willing to spend a little more if the wheels are nice) on wheels. Give me your opinion on what would look good on my 325i.

if you need pics check my garage.

Check out tirerack.com, look up the ASA AR-1's. They make a black version. You can also kinda tell what they look like.

DO NOT GET RPM WHEELS

I can understand not having major dough to blow on some Maya's...but don't get RPM's, those are knock offs of knock offs...which is really bad.

Why don't you look into some Axis rims? They make one in a mesh style that's very affordable. They aren't superlight weight, but they aren't super expensive either....and they are supposed to be very good quality as well. I see you're in Los Angeles, I have a friend who deals with a lot of Rim companies and he can defintitely hook you up with a great price on rims and tires..PM me if you want his number.

Goodluck with the rim search, just be sure to take your time and get something you really like...don't just jump into the first pair you find.

I was wondering the same thing.....

Why is RPM such a bad brand? Why are people against getting these wheels? Are they heavy, do they crack, not last long enough?

What is so bad about them except for the fact that they are an unknown brand?

I want to get RPM Wheels that I saw on e-bay....

take a look at this link....with and without chrome....

Please let me know as I do not want to make a mistake...
