E46 Sedan | Style 32 | Yay Or Nay?

What do you guys think? Swap back to M68's, or keep these?

Thank you
They look so much better in person.
I tried going as wide as I could, because of how it looks. I have a set of 255's sitting around. I'll throw them on once I go through the 275's.

Style 32's are one of my favorite OEM wheels. Look great on almost any BMW.

I'm not opposed to a little extra meat. Better than too skinny

I'm on stock sport suspension. Fronts have some off brand lowering springs that my friend had laying around. My shocks and struts are blown. Coilovers will go on sometime during this month
