Well, I just ordered new rims today.

Finally made a decision. I stayed w/ the 17". After some long debates w/ friends and family. I know 18" would have looked much better but I drove a 330i w/ 18" Mon. nite. I felt the difference in comfort. Didn't like as much.

I'll post pics when it's all done.

for 17's, i think the type 68 wheels that come with the 330 sports package looks the best. but i guess i'll just have to wait and see on what you got.

Nice choice!!

Any specs on it? Ie, offset, weight. Did you have to roll your fenders?

Thanks! But sorry I don't have any specs on the offset or weight. My car is sitting on H&R Race springs and there's no rubbing at all, so no fender rolling was required.
