Arrow BMW E90 Electric Red - What wheels?

Hey guys

I recently bought an E90 and whilst I am quite pleased with the car the wheels/tyres are only small. The tyres are actually 205 wide and they don't feel as stable as they could be so I'm looking to upgrade them.

I've been taking a look at Team Dynamics Imola Graphite (18") which are 8J and would take 245/40/18 but I'm wondering if I should go for something wider.

Anyway, I wondered if anyone had any suggestions, advice or comments please!

Below are pics of the car and Imola Graphite's

Search on the site for pictures of e90's in your color with aftermarket wheel setups. Choose a setup that looks good to you, and duplicate it.

Here is a good starting point:

Thanks - have already been in that thread, some great combinations there, just a shame they don't list the brand, model or size!

Thanks for the input so far guys. I don't think I can get those VMR over in UK

But there are some very similar wheels including these below. Are they a good match? Thinking about going with them!

Looks better than the Tean Dynamics I think.

Dark Grey and black wheels seem to be pretty popular for red E90's these days. We carry several models. To view them on the car , check out :

sadly the Finichi wheels are out of stock everywhere in UK so I'm having to look at other options.

The Avant Garde 310 are very similar but only available in the States. Does anyone know of anywhere that does international shipping?

Cheers

EDIT: have just been to PYSpeed.com shipping is $450 Otherwise would have been well within budget.

Right then guys. I've finally decided on what to go with:

WSP Italy W675 (Gunmetal) - As seen here: http://www.e90post.com/forums/showpo...&postcount=293

(Not my pic)




They should look really nice on the red E90. Going with 235/40/18 on front and then 255/35/18 on the rears.
