Wheels are a very personal thing. However, a couple of things to bear in mind. Depending on the car and wheels chosen, big 17's and 18's can slow the car down. Also larger wheels at the rear than the front can also be detremental to the handling.

On wheels, the MK's are nice. There are a lot of wheels around that needs spacers to fit as the offsets are incorrect. Wheels that will fit without spacers are MK's, Compomotives (which I have), Revolutions and I suspect a few others, but they are becoming harder to find.

Personally, I think there are few wheels that look better than the 16" evo wheels with black centres and polished lips.



i'm looking for some wheels for my m3, i am thinking 17 inch maybe 18's 7.5 - 8.5 wide at front 8.5 - 9.5 wide rear, something with a deepish dish, any ideas what wheels to go for? what are you guys using.

do later 3 series wheels or m5 wheels fit? what spacers may i need. i have the original wheel specs offsets etc.

i realise that this may have been covered plenty of times before, i am having triouble finding good info in the archives.
