Help Replacing my stock Shoes

Hey guys, this is my 2000 318I and i am planning on replacing these stock wheels with new one's

my question is what is the best setup for this sedan? should i go staggered?

The roads down here in Aruba are crapy so what should i go for? 18's or 19's?

and what kind of wheels would look great underneath her.

i would appreciate some help

Thank you.

This is my ride.

Staggered really depends on if you want to rotate the wheels or not. The advantages to staggered is that you will get a wider rear stance which not only improves traction but also looks much better. The non-staggered is more practical as you will be able to rotate your wheels and get better mileage out of your tires.

I recommend you go with an 18'' or 19'', the 18's are a great compromise between performance and looks but the 19's do provide that wow factor.

Here are some popular options:

CSL Wheels


M6 Replicas

M5 Replicas

Miro 349

Here is a link to the rest of our wheel lineups:

If the roads are really in bad shape, stick to 18's. Get some CSL reps, you'll be one of the only people in aruba with em' for sure.

*back on stock 17s, so sad.
