Hi everyone coming back from school a few months ago i hit a pothole that i had no chance of dodging, so hard it bent my front passenger rim real bad. It looks rediculous now. Now when im driving down the street the car kinda "hops" if you know what i mean. Maybe ill try and take pics of it to show everyone on here. Anyway i guess it is a good thing because im just going to buy some new wheels to get rid of those bottlecaps. im actually looking into getting these M3 replicas 18 inch. I just wanted to know if i will have problems putting these wheels on and they won't fit? It seems that everything will be alright with them. Here is a link to the ones that im getting to show you guys and let me know what you think... thanks

try going to autozone or any place and just have them hammer it back... normally in sears they just deflate the tires and hammer the rims back....

the rims you're planning to get looks hot though...

They should fit, just make sure your tires arent to large.

They should. Those look pretty good too.
I ordered rims from aaarims.com(same site you are looking at) and they came real fast and packaged well, just thought i would let you know.

alright sounds good then im probably going to be ordering them within the next few days. Also i know that my rotors are warped insanly bad because the wheel rattles back and forth at high speed breaking. Ive basically been riding a nice looking bmw that drives like a peice of crap for the past few months hahaha. I cant wait to finally change all of this. I wanted to know if anyone knows a good place to get rotors and pads from. I was thinking getting cross drilled brembos on eBay with pads total was around 300 flat. When i priced out the OEM ones they came to 250 at a store. So you think i should just get the cross drilled and pay the extra? thanks

I'd go with wider tires than that. I run 245 in back and 235 in front. Don't quote me though because you may rub with the offset of those wheels with the wide tires. You might even rub with 225s. Those wheels look like the wrong offset (might poke out past the fenders). They are pretty hott but could use a lot more lip.
