Question 18" ---> 19" ??? Worth it??

While I was talking to my neighbour last night, I saw his friend's MB C32 with a set of 19" BBS LM and they look awesome on the car. Even better when he told me the excellent price and now I am tossing between keeping the OEM 18" which I like very much and the 19" BBS LMs..... Ummmm.... But mind you I will be driving on those bumpy Hong Kong roads!!!!

aesthetics only

sucks if you have bad roads but I have seen all the differences between the sizes and you just can't beat the look of a 19". E46's were made for 18's I was told but you can fit them and the look oh so good.

Get forged 19" wheels!

Forged wheels are the strongest wheels type!

8 vs 0

BBS wins by a mile!!! I have made up my mind!!! However, what is size and offset of the OEM 19"s?? I would like to match them with the BBS. Thanks.

19" wheels make a huge difference. just 1 inch is all it takes. you cannot beat the look of 19". 18" almost look stock now. get the 19's!
