Find out the weight versus what you have. They might look good, but if they weigh more, you will be a little slower.

But I am a purist when it comes to wheels so I wouldn't get them

That being said, they're pretty good looking. They remind me of something you might see on a Porsche.

Currently I'm running the m68's--but I really would like a deep dish if not chrome lip type of wheel with at least 9.5 wide.

I'm open to anything you can show me! I'm aiming for an aggressive stance.

My Ride: '99 Techno Violet M3
Kosei K1 Racing. Lightweight, cost effective and pretty good looking as far as I'm concerned.

Can't tell me those wheels don't catch your eye, if you saw them on a e46.

Looking at these !
Those show smallest size available is 20". You will regret 20" trust me. My friend has some extremely nice 20" on his E90. They look so sexy but you literally have to slow down for any and all bumps on the highway. He bent one slightly just going over a bridge lip too fast. Also, they ride harsh and you need run flats, otherwise any flat will immediately destroy your wheel.
