Best 18 In rims on E90/92?

Well I was thinking of getting some new rims. Looking for something like Avant Garde. Not sure how they would look in 18in. I drive on bad roads, and I think Id destroy 19's. So what looks really nice and clean in 18in for our cars?

Id consider lowering the car a bit to make the 18s look more flush.

look at oz ultraleggeras in black.

lighter wheels = sharper drive, especially in the 328.

I have 18" Anthracite Rial Salernos on my E90.

Strong wheels, not made in some outsourcing-manufacturer's-asian-heaven, but in Germany.

+1 But I don't think he's willing to spend that much money considering the OP is looking at getting cast reps.

I recommend some APEX ARC8 - very very light CSL style rims at a great price. You will definetely feel the difference by droping 5-10 pounds per corner.

I set my budget for around 1000-1100.

Thats hilarious, I actually just checked what these were online and I have these in 17's. I sport my Winter tires on these lol. I actually picked up the rims, winter tires 1k miles on them and tpms, already mounted balanced for $700 last year.

I actually like these wheels better than my m6 replicas. Do they make these in 18'?

Just get something DIFFERENT than BMW wheels. OZ would be awesome.

189s or CSL... for 18's these look the cleanest but at the same time, very boring and typical.

if you got the funds, BBS LM and CCW's look sick with aggressive offsets even in 18" size. but then you'll need proper suspension to match too.

I have brand new miro 111 matte black waiting to be put on. Look into those great concave design and if you lower your car an inch it'll look just right!

Yep.

I did install 17.5mm spacers in the back.

Yep it worked. Wow those are sick. Are the 19's? What spacers did you use front and back, and did you lower the car?

Cool... These are 18's... No spacers yet... I put some lowering perches on from Supreme Power, but didn't really notice the difference... The car is on OEM sport suspension...
