dont get the BBS reps. they look very similar to what you have now. plus, they will be a killer to clean all that brake dust off! :o

Stock.

If you must choose something to match your car's "sporty" character (sure hope it's a manual transmission), then I would probably choose some lightweight LTW5s. none of that... stuff... you posted above.

Whats that thing sticking up out of your windshield? is that a license plat or something?

Right... I got rid of these wheels on the pictures since they rode like crap and were heavy. These wheels i posted are not as heavy though except for CCW's and RS's. I also love the LTW5s!

Yes that is a license plate. I can't drill my bumpers lol

MRR GT1. just being bias.
I can also suggest the MRR GT7's.

I just have an issue with the 5 spoke wheels.
Just about every new car comes with a 5 spoke wheel.
And those who remove their stock 5 spoke for an aftermarket
5 spoke wheel, are just wasting money.
My .02 cents.

Hey shorty... GT7's are nice as well. I like 5 spokes as well because, they are easier to clean and since i am getting big brake kit with porsche calipers... they would hot!

Thats just my opinion, but those gt7's have grown on me for awhile.
Just have'nt seen them on an E46. But i did see them on a 135i!
Concaved and lipped! It gives it a very aggresive look.

I'm with Mango on this one, find some nice 17" or 18" OEM wheels

Otherwise,If those are the only options, then I vote none.

It's all about what you want though really;

who cares what any of us think of your wheels.

Respectfully.

I like the ones you have on now the best...sorry!

Personally I don't like wheels with the screws in them...it makes the eye look at that feature more than the car.

You going to paint your tires LSB? I've got a diy thread on it somewhere around here!

the vossen's are so sick. i've always wondered what they would look like on an e46. you can be the guinea pig haha.

the cv2's are nice too, if only they made them in 19s.

Those wheels are gone guys. I sold them already. I am running some cheap lightweight 16" aftermarket wheels right now.

If it were up to me I'd get either bbs rs reps ( in 18s tho) 19 just looks too big.
Or I'd get the ccw's

Honestly, I think only CCW is wild enough for your unique LSB pre-facelift.
