Question Help with wheel choice!

Hey, first time posting
So I bought a e92 msport recently that came with csl wheels
One of the wheels are blandly cracked so needs replacing
I have concluded the wheels are reps as even though there’s stamps on the back, there’s no marking on the front of the wheel.
I have found some 343 wheels cheap, although they are 19”, do bmw so 19” versions of these, I’ve only seen 20” genuine ones?

This being said, has anyone got any suggestion for the nicest but cost effective wheel options?
Ps. I’ve realised how confusing wheels can be

I think you should try to maintain the csl look of the wheel as it is simply the best wheel design ever made for a bmw.

Personally i have had quite a few people complement my Avant Garde M359 wheels.

Look into companies such at Avant Garde and Apex Wheels.

@wolf 335
I agree they compliment the car a loads. The only issue is that it's much more than I was wanting to spend. if what i had were genuine, id happily just buy another from BMW. but new wheels + new tires = empty wallet :'(

Will these new wheels be used all year round?

If it is going to be an all season wheel then definitely avoid 19".

If you have a 325, I would not put 19" wheels on it, they are simply too heavy. The car will ride comfortably, handle nicely and look good with 18" wheels. Besides, you'd need to mount lower profile tires in order to fit and it will be quite a bit firmer ride than you think. A set of Style 197's would be a good upgrade.

@tcphoto I have fallen the look with the 19s and the style,
But you're probably right, and they're a good suggestion cheers.
