Questions 166M

Hi

I'm new to this forum and ordered my Baby (318i with sport suspension) yesterday! I have a few questions about the 166M wheels! I've walked through the forum and I like the wheels of the user titanium06! Now I want wheels like that for my new baby too...


1. Are 19" 166M replicas too heavy for my car? (129 HP)
2. Where can I buy those 166M replicas cheap (I've seen a few
replicas on ebay!But I don't know if they are of good quality)
3. I wanna know the size of tires I need...
4. Do I need to make any modifications to get my car like that?

thx

Make sure that when buying replicas the offset can be adjusted to fit your car (spacers).
Your wheels probably weight about 20-25lbs, upgrading to your 19" 166M should be about 25-30 per wheel. You are talking probably 20lb more of unsprung weight. Tires would probably be at 235/35/19 and 265/30/19.
