Best 18" Rim...

Alright, I know this question has been asked before but I can't make up my mind. What summer rims should I get? Feel free to post pics. I have a black sapphire 335xi coupe.

18" m6 rep... they look as big as 19" wheels with a lip.
18" wheels with a lip loooks too small imo.

That's tough but I think the 18" M6s are the best looking available. Can't go wrong with 18" CSLs either.

The most common ones are the M6 and CSL reps and IMO, either one would look great on the E92 coupe.

I'd go with whatever has nice thick spokes. Xi has jacked up suspension, fat rim spoke will offset that nciely. Dont get deep dish as well. M6 reps sound like nice wheel, but id go for full silver, not black-silver design.

I personally would pick CSL's , since i don't like the look of M6 reps with our stock disc brake setup. it would look badass if you got M6 reps, with bigger drilled or slotted discs...

But with the M6's,, you will get more head turners than the CSL..

That last picture shows it pretty well. Just wanted to compare side by side. Car looks great BTW!

i agree with the brakes but not with the head turners lol most people thought they were stock rims thats why i want csl's because you can get them in all different colors
