New wheel options

Hello everyone,

My OEM wheels on my 330xi are bent all to hell so I am in need of new wheels. Anyone have experience with TSW Nurburgring or Beyern Spartan wheels? I am just wondering how well they hold up and how they ride. If not those, any other recommendations? I'm looking for 17" wheels preferably.

Thanks!

What is your budget? Will you be transferring over tires or getting new tires?

I'll probably end up buying new tires. My current tires are 205/50 17s. I tried looking for decent OEM of comparable size to eliminate the need for new tires but at this point I don't care. I'm looking to spend no more $275 per wheel.

You can see if Apex has a group buy for some square setup 17's. They weight about 17 pounds each versus 23+ for oem wheels.

I have OZ wheels which weight about the same. Big difference when you lift the wheels.
