Question ZHP 18" wheels on a 325i

Anyone know if ZHP style 135 wheels fit on an '03
325i Sport? The sizes are 18x8 in front and 18x8.5 in rear. Don't want to modify anything ie: fender rolling. Please help

Yes they'll fit, but they're heavy wheels which will decrease performance.

If you value looks over performance, go for it.

Yes they fit. I agree with what was stated above. I had ZHP wheels on my car, very nice but you feel the decrease in performance anytime you go up in wheel size.

Will I get any rubbing since they're staggered? I'm on 17" style 96's right now. Would it really make a noticeable difference in performance or drive?

No, it will not rub. ZHPs are the same as our cars and they come with those wheels. Here is a pic of my car with them: (and you do feel somewhat slower acceleration because you have more weight being rotated. Only thing I recommend is getting tires with a 40 sidewall because some of the holes in NYC HURT and you can bend your wheel or destroy a tire)

Thanks for all the help!

Solid, I like how it looks on the car. What kind of kit do you have on?

Thanks guys, but that's when I did that stupid paint thing on the bumper and white fogs (yuck)

I have 17's on now and my car looks like this
