Help me choose a wheel! Which one is closer to BMW Style 359?

Help me choose a wheel! Which one is closer to BMW Style 359? I have a 2011 no package E90 328i. Currently has the 17 inch style 285 wheels. Looking to get style 359 lookalike wheels on the cheap cheap. Please don't mention VMR and the Apex ARC-8, I know those are better but they are more than what I'm willing to spend on this car. (I may possibly be getting an E92 M3 in the next 12 months or so depending on how business is, hence why I do not wish to spend more money on this car).

Let me know which one you guys think looks better or most similar to the BMW style 359 wheels. I have stock suspension and will be running a square set up (18x8).

Alzor 030

The 030's look more similar and they're more cost effective. It's such a common wheel though. No other choices for you huh?

Lol, yes I know many people have the 359 wheels or 359 replicas. But I can't resist!!! They just look so good!! The F8X comp wheels (style 666 devil wheels) look like shit. The old e9x m3 comp wheels look so much better.

$360 for a new set of 4 wheels? I'd be afraid to go over 55 mph! Haha

The 030 are the ZCP/M359 reps. The 040 are Miro Type 111 reps.

The 030 have a really bad convex face which looks terrible, at least to me:


Why not source out a square set of 19x9 OEM fronts? It's a great flush fitment and you can never beat OEM quality for these wheels.

I took a look at the Miro Type 111, they look like 359 reps. So are you saying there are people out there making replicas of replica wheels?

Lol, I was thinking the same thing but I looked at some reviews of Alzor wheels and it seemed like it was of decent quality. Haven't heard of anyone having issues yet.

These:



If it MUST be between the options you've presented, then my vote is style 040. Or both, considering the price.



+1 on 19" wheels too, FWIW

My vote is don't buy rims if you might be switching cars in a year. Those type of rims are not going to add value to the car when you sell or trade in.

I know you’re in the USA and this is a UK site, but if it were me, I’d get these (available in multiple finishes)

I've had the 18"x8" square 030s on since April. Several potholes later and they're still fine. I went with 18s because I wanted more sidewall for crappy CO roads. One of my coworkers has M359s on his E92 M3 Comp, and he asked if mine were the same ones!



Edit to add image on stock suspension. The above is on KW V1s.

Wow! Perfect! Thanks for the pic, is your car lowered? Do you have sport package suspension? For some reason my LCI E90 seems to ride fairly high with some wheel/fender gap.

Just edited my above post with a photo from when I was on stock xi suspension. It's lowered on KW V1 coilovers. That pic is from the day they were installed, so it's a little lower now.
