I want to buy those wheels from there too. I am trying to decide between 235 45 and 225 45s for my 03 325xi.. Will the 235s fit and look better?

I just placed an order today!!! and I am expected to receive it on Friday!!! so happy!!! I think both of the sizes are fine for our 325xi and I do think that the 235 will look more aggressive!!!!! I order a set of 225/45/17 Pirelli P Zero Nero M&S from tire rack!! the price is really good!!!!

I like the wheels!!!! but I think in the future I will go for 18" coz 17" still look too small!!! The tires are nice, reduce a lot of noise and reduce braking distance!!! oh mine is a silver!! Actually I wanna go for the Toyo Proxe 4 instead of the Pirelli. But my dad is crazy about Pirelli so I have no choice!!! hahaha..................... next mod will be the H&R coilover!!! The gap between the tire and the fender looks like I am driving a jeep man!! I can't upload my pics man it said it is too big!!! what can I do!! I have already resize it to 152kb!!!! yo post yours too man!!!!

Yeah I know that sucks!!!!!!!! But now I may change my mind coz coilover is too hard and the road condition like s**t in NYC, I am afraid the aggressive setting will damage the wheels and tires!! so now I am thinking of changing the shocks and spring, any suggestion??

if you plan on changing the shocks and springs... well that's basically what you'll get with coilovers. that and you'll be able to adjust the ride height to your liking and if you get adjustable coilovers, then you can set the stiffness to your liking as well.
