Good lightweight wheels?

Hey guys, I have a titanium silver 01 330ci with the stock wheels on it. I want to get a pair of lightweight wheels and plan to get them in hypersilver. But I am curious what a good pair of wheels are that aren't to clunky and heavy. Let me know!

Thanks!

i have sportline cs16 wheels on my car. they're all just under 20 pounds i believe. like 19-20 pounds. they're from modbargains i believe they're called cs8 or something now.

if you want something lighter you'll have to go with a true lightweight wheel like the enkei, kosei, or OZ wheels. all offering wheels at around 16 pounds each.

Ok I will definitely look into those! How well do you like them?

I like them a lot. There's a noticeable weight difference compared to my stock wheels. Which is even more awesome considering my stock wheels were 17" compared to my new 18" wheels.

Style 68's are lighter than most wheels out there. If you really want to shave off some rotating mass, and the roads by you aren't crap, check out the D-Force LTW5.

There's mixed feedback on them so research a bit if you are interested.

Style 68 if you want to stay with the BMW rim. I believe this is the standard rim type your car had from the factory.

I would stay away from Kosei and D-Force. Apex wheels are great.
