318is rims & ebay

what do you guys think of ebay rims? i mean these are "BBS style" not BBS. so i guess im asking, are these going to be horrible for my car or is it going to make much difference?


good? bad? sketchy?

There are 18's on my 318is and they don't rub, but I am not sure how wide they are, prolly 7 inches, maybe wider, I just bought the car and they were already on it.

18s are the norm for aftermarket wheels on this car... as long as you dont plan to lower a lot.. you can fit 18 with low profile tyres on there... with no problem.. the rear is where you will have problems with a wider tyre on a 18 inch. Other than that... it works fine.

Good Luck,

Les
