here's your answer
http://www.e90post.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=12
finding the right think is hard, but just need more searching.
not which wheels will look best on your car, is what you think is the best on your car. more people jump in tell you what to buy, the more confused you get.
try to keep your questions in one thread

most people run some sort of CSL style variation or one of the styles offered by VMR / Euro Division

M Sport wheels are also popular for stock look

I myself had CSLs but then bought OEM Style 190s as a main set of wheels because they are highly unusual and no one alse has them in Oz as far as I know. I also have OEM 185s as a second set.

A coupe of photos below (190s - 19 inch and 185s - 17 inch)

Just google E90 wheels. Then press 'Images'.
Find whatever give you a boner that isnt chrome.
Buy them. It's not a hard process.

Yep! I am a smart ass, but that being said starting 3 threads on the same topic in quick succession is pretty much a no-no on every forum I have ever visited. One is sufficient.

Just remember that google is your friend and should be utilised as your first port of call with ANY type of question. In regards to your new wheel choice, they are a much better choice, although you may be hard pressed to find them in Australia. There are plenty of wheels that look very similar to those, including CSL replicas, or VMRs.

haha that you are man! to be honest i had no idea how this forum business works but i am picking it up slowly and might seem like a looser now.

Yes i am much happier with these wheels, except i am not after any replicas as my friend has bought a few replica wheels and after timet they start getting weird shading and peeling on the wheel, its weird i know!

the vertini magic's will be easier to source as taleb tyres stock them however only in 8.5inch widths, You'll need to run spacers aswell if you want to run an aggressive set up as the offsets are soft

depends on what offsets your going to run

and what you decide to lower on i.e coilovers/springs as there will be different results

Your best bet is to go to your local, reputable suspension shop and ask the pro's! Balancing Offset & Wheel Width against dropped suspension is always interesting, and what might be acceptable to some, may not be to you (eg, on my last car my back wheels scrubbed the wheel arch lining when I went over bumps, but I was OK with that as the wheel / ride height combination looked brilliant!)

I'm sure the guys on here can point you in the right direction for which ever state your in. If you in WA, WA Suspension in Osborne Park is the way to go!
