17" is perfect if the car is slammed. Otherwise, it looks silly.

I have pretty much the only other set of those!, we've searched far and wide looking for other sets...

oh, and BTW, they're pretty much for sale at the moment. 2 need new barrels, so im gonna price them accordingly. Theyre all 19x9.5 +41, But this would give someone the opportunity to make 2 smaller or larger, depending on what they want. I know i'll miss these to death if I let them go

this was with 25mm spacers in the rear, 18 in the front.

This, and even then I wouldn't say perfect.
I think perfect is defined by the stance and flush was of the setup.
Those 2, Stanc3 and Fantico look pretty perfect to me on 18s and 19s.

I agree with 17" on the e46, looks real good if done right. I just lowered mine a lot and was wondering if you guys know of any good looking 17" rims around? I was looking into ESM lms in 17s maybe?

i recall a few members here *****ing and moaning about how spacers are bad, and buy rims that fit.

it's whatever your looking for, i just picked up a set of LM's that I might turn into track wheels and i have my works for when i want to be aggressive.

stick with the 30's if you want less of a headache trying to get it to fit.
Real?????
