Stern ST- 2 Touring Sport Rims. What Do You Think?

Hey guys, I'm new to the board and this is my first post.

I have a 2002 BMW 330ci & have been searching high and low for good wheels at a good price.

What do you think of these wheels? Somebody is offering them to me for 800 dollars

What color is your car? I could see these working on mine, just because it's a silver aggressive car with a black roof/hood/trunk top/mirrors. But I don't think they'd look right on an OEM car, or a subtly modded car. Just my $0.02.

@ 220$ per wheels, its not the greatest deal on earth. You can do better.

If you really want these, check ebay out. I think they are the cheapest there. But like everyone said, they are not the best wheels for $220, why don't you check the classifieds out and pick up a good set of wheels?

bbs' are nice thought can be on the pricey side, just for the love of god don't go with bbs rs' (bmw style 5's) ... lm's are nice though somewhat cliche' but not overplayed like the rs', csl's are nice too but overplayed as well unless in a uncommon color

Im slowly parting ways with the all show type of wheels and will soon be configuring my car for optimal performance.

For your 330ci, some lightweight 18s will look the part and at the same time give you the edge your BMW should have over other cars.

Id go with these or some BBS reps if you dont care about performance but want the look.

edit:

prob can lookinto this, itll be alot cheaper also

Original Equipment Manufacturer. In other words, stock, non-modified. Black wheels on a car that isn't modded look a bit out of place. That's not to say they look bad, but an E46 is a tame-looking car in stock form, so the wheels might stand out too much. Again, this is just my opinion.

I've seen those rims on a car before and it makes the car look more like a luxury car.


ESR-4s are really nice btw..

Not sure if you got it from the same website but here's the preorder website http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthr...&highlight=esr

Those are nice, but it depends on your taste.
