Wheel Upgrade

I was looking at my 01 320i and damn the wheels are stupid small, i think there like 15's, ne ways i was looking at getting some new wheels but i dont wanna do the "bling bling" thing so much, its a classy car and it needs wheels to compliment that. Nothing to conservative but also racy at the same time. Ne suggestion as to which wheels i should get and how much i am looking at with tread?

Thanks,
Sardar

18" CSL style wheels are a good option

awesome. Another punjabi with a 320...welcome to the club bro!

and yes, the wheels are damn small. It all depends on how much you want to spend. If money is not too much of an issue, get some nice BBS wheels or one of the ones listed in the above post. They are all classy and very sporty. If money is a concern, get the 18" CSL replica's from Velocity Motoring. They go for about $800 american for the set w/o tires and they look great. I am probably going to get those over the summer.

Good luck.
