Pic Request - BBS RC 303s on E46 Sedan

Fellow Fanatics, I am looking for pictures of RC 303s on a sedan. If you can also include specs on your wheels, tires & suspension I would appreciate it!

These aren't BBS RC 303s. They are Apex ARC8s. They will give you an idea of how they look but just concave lol. Or you could just google it...I literally typed in Google BBS RC303 and had a e46 sedan show on google images lol.

I did google and found a couple pictures. I want hoping to get some additional pictures with the setup specifications as well.

I mean those aren't really a common wheel on the e46 chassis, let alone on bimmers. I see them much more often on VW. The closest thing you'll see are a bunch of people running ARC8s which look pretty similar to the wheels you're looking at. That was the purpose of my post to show you an alternative and give you an idea of how aggressive you can go if you'd like to do so. If you still want the flat faced design, go with ARC8s man. They make flat faced design just like the RCs and concave wheel sets for whatever look you're going for.

Fair point sir.

So, to that end, I am looking for images of 18x8.5 ET38 ARC8s on a sedan.

Here you are my man!

Apex ARC8 wheel gallery here on the forums as well. This will hopefully give you a good idea of how it'll look on the e46.

The wheels itself I quite like. I would love a set of ARC8's one day. The style looks great on a lot of models IMO:

completely agree, Apex wheels hit the nail on the head with their wheel lineup. All of them look great on all models honestly.
