Which wheels should i get for my 330ci?

Recently bought my first BMW (definitely not my last ) a 2002 330Ci M-Tech II and I love it. But I'm in the thinking of buying a new set of wheels for it since my tires are bad, so now I need some suggestions.

Here's some pictures of the car, taken with my Iphone.



Sorry about the image size, don't know how to get'em smaller.

those are nice wheels, do a drop first enjoy those for a bit and then change them, my 2 cents, but if you need tires, the best is to look at many pics, mate black or hypper silver would look good on yours

Have you taken a look at the sponsors section? Thats a great place to start with handfuls of packages. How much were you looking to spend?

CSLs or V710s...CSLs for a classic look, V710s for a more aggressive look. They are our top selling wheels for a reason, excellent design, great quality and well priced. We can do them with tire packages if you need as well.

How much do they weigh

How much do the 18" size weigh?

They seem very good value. How do they compare with more expensive wheels BBS, DPE, HRE, etc?

18's are about 24.5lbs-25lbs depending on the width.

The comparable BBS wheel would be a CH however BBS uses lower pressure casting so they are a bit denser and stronger, but also much more expensive. DPE and HRE are forged 1, 2 and 3 piece wheels, they are in a completely different league in terms of price and quality.

VMRs are designed to be driven daily and put through their paces so they are more than capable for most applications including track cars and daily drivers. They are one of our most popular wheel lines for a reason, they are proven quality and value.

I am happy with what I've got, but the ones I have are in pretty bad condition. I was thinking about the new M3 e90 rims anyone got a picture of an e46 with those wheels?

We are finishing up our September to Remember special this week (extended through this Sunday).

Look here for values that may appeal to you - we have E90 m3 rims available as well.

Maybe some VMR V713's would do the trick? Feel free to PM me if you have any questions on these wheels (only available in silver - Powdercoating is available but not from factory):
