New wheels and tires for my 2005 325xi

Over the years my wheels have gotten pretty banged up so I have been searching for something new. I don't have the $$ for OEM but I found these replicas that I like http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...#ht_5487wt_881. I am sure the quality will not be the same as the OEM ones but in general is this a good idea or will I regret it? Also what size tires do you recomend for these? The wheels are 18x8 so I was thinking of a 215/35/18 or 225/35/18. These are what I am thinking right now http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires....omCompare1=yes Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!

I have also read in places that it might look funny if my car isn't lowered. I really don;t want to get into this.

You could fit a 225/40/18 or even a 235/40/18 with those wheels.

OEM quality is nice but it comes at a high price. I think if you are careful when driving places you should be fine. Just don't charge through pot holes and you should be good haha.
