best rim for non lowered sedan?

k, gonna be getting rims soon for my E90 sedan soon cause i heard from my dealer that it will cost 500 bucks to repair OEM rims!! (my sis drives the car sometimes and i don't wanna risk it)

anyways, im looking for something cheap.. was wondering, which would you pick out of these selection? I know 18's with no lip will look better, and 19 with lip will be better too...


my car is TiAG... thanks

18x8.5 35+ offset all around


18x9.5 20+ offset all around


19x8.5 35+ offset all around


19x8.5 20+ offset all around (10mm spacer for rear)


thanks .. please tell me if any of those wheels will need spacers or they just wont fit....

#1 and #3 will likely work offset wise. I'm not sure about #2. #4 will not work even with spacers.

What's your budget?

I think you could do better than those wheels.

for your e90, your gonna need 5x120 staggered. offset 20 wont work. About 35+ is best.
For the most comfortable ride 18s, but for looks 19s.

Why don't get you a stagger set, assuming you don't have an xi.

And personally...i would stay away from 5 spoke designs for the sedan...unless you plan on getting a BBK. Personally I think a 5 spoke design will be too aggressive for a sedan...and will show off your small brakes.

Personally, I would prefer going for multispoke or mesh design wheels. Like the ASA AR-1, M5 Replicas, CSL replica, or even the Borbet LS (if you want to be unique).

Yes that will work. You may decide to get a 5mm or 10mm spacer for the rears later. 10mm spacer may be very close to rubbing. I would go with the recommended tire sizing of 235/35/19 for the front and 265/30/19 for the rears. Also if your sister likes to curb wheels pick a tire with some rim protection (ie. not General UHP).

Also take a look at Beyern Wheels...some of the local shops (ie. Volco and 1010tires) sell them...but a little more pricey than ASA AR-1.

if you pick it up from point roberts you will save on shipping (shipping within lower 48 states is always cheaper versus shipping to canada) and brokerage. probably will save about $100-$200 or so (depending on who's shipping it). i think it's worthwhile...

of course shipping to door is more convenient tho...

BTW...I believe E90PWR (local guy) was selling his ASA AR-1. You should make him a good offer...he might part with his wheels.

But if you wish to have a good quality and hard wheels leave your OEM.
If you buy cheap rims they will be demaged by your sister sooner than you think.

Definitely consider the ASA AR-1. Also, have you looked into Velocity Motoring (V715, VB3, etc.)??

Thats what I thought too, but I ended up getting a great deal on some 5 spoke rims and they look pretty good, even with the 328's smaller brakes, heres a pic. If I had a 335i with the larger brakes they would probably look even better though.





OP, you should be fine with a 39mm offset and a 10 mm spacer, along with some kumho ecstas. I'm running 265 general uhp's with 9.5 rear rims and an et22 offset and they dont rub, they only rub the fender lining on large bumps, but not the fender so no rolling is required. With the kumhos being wider with the rim guard, running a 39mm offset with a 10mm spacer will be perfect and should be pretty much flush with no rubbing.
