Stick w/17's - 17X8.5 w 245/40-17 makes a nice setup & understeers a lot less. 18's in general add lots of extra wheel & tire weight - it's all unsprung wt which is the worst kind. Look at BBS RK's or SSR Integral for reasonably priced light wt 17's.All the 18's you're looking at are very heavy. Check the archives on 18's & you'll get feedback on the 18's screwing up handling & balance of the M3.
