Help me decide what my next wheels should be

I want to upgrade from my ZHP wheels. Theres three wheels that im considering.

1. VMR VB3
2. Forgestar f14
3. Miro Wheels Type 111

The Miro wheels look nice and I feel they aren't too common on E46's. Forgestar, also haven't seen them on many E46's as well. These are the pricier ones out of the 3 though. The VMR's are the cheapest in price but I believe I read they are pretty heavy wheels?

I like the 111s. You should consider OEM options, too:

I do like Apex but doesn't a set of wheels go for over $1000? and I think the best OEM wheels are the ones I currently have ZHP wheels lol

What is your priority, weight or cost? Are you tracking the car or want to find a nice compromise? My E46 was not a ZHP but I liked the combination of MTechII front bumper and Style 197's.

I just dont want to spend over a grand. Right now Im leaning towards the miro wheels over VMR. I did the total last night and it was about $900. m=My plan is to sell my ZHP wheels and make some money back. do you guys think asking $700 is too much? they are in great condition.

I paid $500 for the near perfect Style 197's, but the 135's may be more in demand.

If you like Apex I'd say just wait, between their regular groupbuys and the flooded market you can snag a good deal; I got my set of ARC8 with almost new Pilot Super Sports for $1000

Definitely apex. You can't really go wrong, arc 8s they look great in 17 or 18. The only problem is then you look like every other e46.

^^^ yeah that's why I didn't want VMR's or Apex haha but anyways I ended up getting ESR SR12 wheels. I think they look pretty nice and they weren't expensive.
