I agree with Matt. 18 is overkill and you will slow the car down with additional rotational mass. That thin rubber provides close to no wheel protection. 18" rubber typically costs more.

Ive got 17x8 BBS RKs with 224/45ZR17 Yokohama AVS sports. 17x8 BBS RK's weigh in at 17lbs. ea., stock 16x7 wheels are 17.5 ea.

With this combination I inceased the wheel size and gained performance instead of losing it.

See some pix of my car at www.altechcorp.com/Z3

I lowered my car 1" in front and .75" in the rear with Koni sport adjustables.
