Good point. Coming from a 100 hp miata I know full well the importance of lightweight rims.

For winter rims I was thinking of buying a e90/92 17" rims off the 328/335
Where can I find weight specs? I know BMW makes a lot of wheels....

This link was pretty helpful...

But no specs on rims... Just pics...

Another quick question why are the rims I have called m68s as opposed to style 68? Are all m sport rims called m+style number. And non m sport rims referred to by just style number? Trying to get the lingo down...
