your car had 19's

But the rim and spokes were relatively thin compared to the E60 M-Sport wheels, and got even thinner by a few ounces when you sat on it and dropped it on its face.

I've been wanting to see a certain 7 series wheel on an e46 and finally there is on the last page of the aggressive wheel thread..... Great concave.

I don't like how the guy is running so low, but it looks like you have some room to raise it and play with some bigger tire sizes.... I'll find the pic.

^^^ I forgot which style # they are, but they're a optional wheel on the last gen 7 series I believe.

That 7er wheel works a little better because the spokes are thin. If you are going with a busier design, don't go big, and if you're gonna go big, make sure it doesn't look "chunky".

Another thing, you have a gray car, and big, chunky, bright silver wheels. That will be your focal point, and the car will be completely ignored.

I'm speaking purely from an aesthetic standpoint, but mod away if you wish.
ok
