Replica M wheels from **********s? Wheel advice needed!!

Hi all --

New poster here/car novice (learning a lot as I poke around here) and interested in upgrading my current 17" stock wheels to something more aggressive. Want to keep it budget-friendly so interested in replica wheels. Anyone bought these from **********s? I know they're big on this site, but wanted to see if anyone had first-hand reviews.

Also interested in hearing feedback on what size, offset, etc I should do. I don't have sport suspension and have not lowered the car, so I'm curious as to what will fit.

Live in Boston where roads are bumpy and full of potholes. Should I even think about lowering the car? Love the look.

Attached is my car as-is. Am thinking of doing black grilles and possibly covering the chrome on the sides. Also am getting vinyl smokes on the front ambers and ordered blacklines for the rear.

Wheels

First of all, welcome. This site is a wealth of information. If I were going to replace them, stick with factory instead of replicas. At least you know you're getting a wheel made from a reliable source. I have had a set of BBS wheels on another vehicle I owned and really liked them. If you want to see what a certain type of wheel looks like on your vehicle, go to the tirerack website. They have a place you can see how wheels of various diameters and makes look on your car. You can even narrow your car down to the color. I'm sure there are a lot to pick from. I put 18's on my car this year and couldn't believe the difference in handling. I purchased a set of 193M wheels with brand new tires from a memeber on the forum. Came off his 2011 335i. Lot of deals like that here. Good luck.
