Wheel Suggestions?

Hey all looking for a set of 18 or 19 inch wheels for the 2003 330xi, ive read alot about the confusion the XI brings.

Let me know what you have got and what it took to make them run right.

Thanks

budget is 1000-1300 wheels and tires, dont have to be new.

Thx

Try and find a nice set of used BBS wheels. You want strong but light. I would stay away from 19s in Buffalo.

It's worth looking at the OEM wheel clearance at ECS
