Rec. Tire Size: 225/40-18
**Lightweight: 23.9lbs.**

OR

i would say csl reps,but go for 19",you may well regret going for 18".

i just think the csl's suit the car perfectly.

I would always choose BBS over any rep wheel brand.

Here's my ranking:

1) 19" BBS CH (M3 fitment...which will require rear fender rolling)
2) 19" CSL Replicas
3) 19" BBS CH (Non M3 fitment)
4) 18" BBS CH
5) 18" CSL Replicas
