socalguy is an unknown quantity at this point
now i have a reason to get new rims b/c
my mechanic said the front right inner was bent. Therefore i have a little
shake in my steering wheel, especially when i brake and I HATE iT!

So i have a 96 328is silver.. What rims do you all think would look best? and
what is a good brand.. does brand even matter? I dont know much about rims.
i was thinking about maybe putting some black ones on...??

all opinions appreciated...

Out of all the BMW wheels I have seen, the ones I personally like best are the ones that just happened to come with my 328i when I bought it. See pic. I believe they are standard BMW Sport package alloy rims.

They are, as the kids say, sweeeet.

Do ya want an oem look or aftermarket?

aftermarket: most anything by Hamman seems correct

oem: well, i like mine (below)

BTW, 17" wheels IMO are a good way to go because they are cheaper (not to mention tires), and you don't really put yourself in harms way with regards to clearence issues (possible with 18's).

I say go for the M3 LTW rims, the same ones jllphan has, but you could get the OEM ones from Bavarian Autosport. I agree with the OZ statement, but last time i checked they don't fit a BMW. Maybe they do now?

I say go OE. IMO

I have new 18" M3 Hyper Silver Rims on my '98. I'll try to get pictures later, and as Andrewsd1985, they look freaking awesome. 18's are perfect.

All depends how much money your willing to spend. I would get 17" BBS LM rims around $530 per rim. These are my next rims. I currently own 17" Mille Miglia EV-R Rims. Check out places like www.tirerack.com or www.wheelmax.com

You probly need a 5x120 bolt pattern to fit your car. Happy wheel shopping.


:edit: Here are some pics

If you want a cheaper type BBS rim there are ASA rims. Here is a pic of ASA AR1 Rims:

Major shaking whilea braking? Ask you mech to check your control arms and tie rods, and front ball bearings, seriously. Those are probably the reason you are getting the violent shaking, and probably not the rim. Sorry. All these people who are shaking MOST LIKELY have one of these problems, if not multiple.

But if yous till got yoru heart set on rims, it's all about the HAMMAN HM2's. They are damn seksi.
