VMR CSL 18'' or 19''?
 
I'm thinking about getting VMR CSL reps for my 330ci. Just wondering what would look better. 18's or 19's. If you guys can post some pictures that would be helpful. Also if someone has a titanium silver with hypersilver wheels that would be even better. Thanks.

19's imo...

+1 :smokin: 19īs

18's. Sorry but those who say 19 obviously don't DD their cars in the city. Think about how expensive tires are going to be, how easy it will be to curb rash them, and how much more susceptible to potholes you'll be.

17's :eeps:

OP is in norcal. Not too many cities up there between SF and Portland OR.

Yeah I know 18's are more practical... but 19's just look so good! And I don't think I'll have a big issue with potholes and such... Its not to bad in norcal.

Potholes are universal. I still don't think the impracticality is worth it.

Yes and you also dont notice the potholes as much until you have larger rims. That is why I went with 18s. Great looks especially when lowered and still better performance without as much hassle.

Steven747 06-05-2011 02:13 PM

This has been covered many many times.. 19 look too big and don't go well with non-ms atleast csl's.. 18's are perfect and with a drop even better..

I have a tiag 330ci with black csl's I'll post pics up when I get home

MysticBlau330Ci 06-05-2011 02:35 PM

Staggered 18s. Mike at ModBargains (forum sponsor) sells them and has them on his TiAg 330Ci. Scroll down to see Mike's car. I bought mine here. No problems. http://www.modbargains.com/Velocity-...-Staggered.htm

18's, car will be faster, handle better too. and tires will be cheaper and the wheels wont bend if you hit a pot hole or bump.

01330cifirstbmw 06-05-2011 04:20 PM

18s are a good compromise between looks and performance. 19s look great but expect your handling and acceleration to take a dip. And this topic has been beaten to death with no clear answer. Now lets talk about oil or intakes please...

alpinewhiteon18s 06-05-2011 04:33 PM

There not even in stock

Iceman00 06-05-2011 05:20 PM

The smaller the wheels, the better. 19's look terrible and they raise the car too much.

destroyeerr 06-05-2011 05:52 PM

18s for non-m.

19s should not raise the car. It's a wheel/tire "plus system"

it would only visually trick one to thinking it's raised

Alex323Ci 06-05-2011 06:19 PM

Here are some pictures of my 323Ci with VMR 18" staggered
