My Ride: 2003 BMW E46 1.8Ci
Will I regret...

I'm very seriously considering getting OEM 19'' New-style rims for my 2003 318iC

Trouble is not the wheels, OK so $2400 is a lot but you get a hell of a lot of wheel!!!
I have also done a lot of research and finally found somewhere outside of BMW UK who sells the rims and can get four fronts (You have to use fronts as the rears have a totally unsuitable width and offset, they only fit the M3, M3CSL &
M3GTRstr. BMW themeselves will not sell unless you own one of these models (A friend of mine has fallen out big time with his dealer because he won't help get M wheels for his 330iC Clubsport)

Anyway ,the tires! Super skinny and $400 each, am I gonna need a new set every 6 months or are they long-life

I do about 2-3K Miles of hard driving per annum and about 9K cruising
