Smile BMW headlight & tire upgrade?

Hi everyone,

I bought a 2011 323i for my first car. I have 225/45 R17 all around. I was thinking of getting wider rear tires, 245/45 17 or 235/45/17. Any suggestions?

Also how would I know if the current rims I have will fit 235 or 245 tires?

I'm also thinking of buying the V3's from lux. I have stock halogens...

https://www.luxangeleyes.com/product...lci-halogen-v3

Also how do i put rings on my headlights without upgrading to xenons? Do i have to buy the rings separately or will the product above put rings on my headlights?

Thank you.

I msgd the luxangeleyes page in instagram. They said customers who usually order the v3's end up buying a low beam bulb around 4350K to match better. Theres an mtec one and phillips has one too they said.

My question is will the V3's light up the rings on my headlight

It is really hard to recommend something that u haven't seen in person specially LED bulbs . Ive heard Lux are the best but expensive . For the money that I paid , I think Genssi bulbs are 'ok' . At night the are bright as all LED bulbs are but CCFL lights are way better for sure . During the day "they are usable " , not really bright but you still can see them.

When i bought my car , I was in the same boat as you , looking for better angel eye, low and high beam bulbs , what a mistake. I ended expending way more that I wanted. Recommendation : I know you can find aftermarket headlamps for around $300/$400CAD with integrated LED/CCFL angel eyes rings ( They are really bright) , with projectors for HIDs and you will be way more happier . Sell or keep you stock headlamps and close that page, don't waste time and money , you will never be happy if really want to have GOOD headlights .

Where did you get your headlights from? I found a few online but I'm not sure if I want to risk getting error codes or flickering.

I haven't bought aftermarket headlamps yet ... I already bought LEDs for the AE and Diamond Vision 5k. The headlamps made by Rolling Gears are well known and good looking , they have few problems though.
