I like the staggered look. My 330Ci came with staggered 18s on it. 225/40 on front and 255/35 on the rears. I think the wheels are 18x8 and 18x9.

I'm thinking about getting some ASA AR1's but I don't see many cars with black rims anymore so i'm wondering if the style has passed?

Noisy tires

How do I make sure that my next set aren't so noisy? Is it the tread pattern? Is there a noise rating on tires?
