I'm pretty sure those are 19's, you can tell by how small the sidewall is. On 18's you only need a 40 series sidewall, those are way thinner. Plus I have 19's and they look the same size as mine.

Hello all. Will the "non-staggered" 18* wheels fit my 328 Coupe -00 without any modification in the rear wheelhouse?

Here we go again...

Yup...the CSLs are back on. Sold the color-matched ones (not a great idea for TiAg) and got some regular ones. (Non-staggered 18x8.5 rims with Goodyear Eagle F1 GSD3s...225s front and 245s rear)

Here ya go. I liked them at first and some of the pics make them look really good. But I quickly got bored with the lack of contrast seeing them in person every day. I sold them to someone with a black car. I'm sure they looked hot on that color.

I took the CSL's off the other day to put the M68's on for the recent snow storm and i must admit, i've been enjoying the smooth ride these past couple days.

Car definetely looks different without them on. To bad you can't have the best of both worlds on this one. Smooth Ride and Big Wheels.

But ride aside, those babys are coming back on when all the snow melts.

My ride is very smooth with these 18" CSLs and the Goodyear Eagles. Very impressed with the ride of these tires...smooth, quiet, but with good wet traction. But my BMW wheel guy is phenomenal when it comes to road force balancing...the only way to go. This last set of CSLs he did are smoother than my ASAs with the exact same tires and I thought that would be impossible.

I thought about 17" CSLs for a while...almost imported them last year from the UK, actually (shipping was astronomical, tho). I think they would look pretty good on the stock car. The front 18s are almost too big for a stockie with no front end changes to me. The 19s look great on MTech or other body kits that lower the lines but are too big for the stock car, IMO. But then again, I have developed a real aversion to all of the over-sized wheels on the road these days, especially on non-sports cars and SUVs.

Your car is the REASON I'm planning on picking up a 2005 ZHP. Exactly my style BoBo. Very very nice, how do the club sport add-ons cost?
