I just recently purchased a 328is, thinking about putting some rims on it. My first question is size. I have done a bit of research and it seems like anything above 18 is too big. I love the look of the 18's but if it is going to have to much of an impact on handling/performance I will be alright with 17s. Any suggestions ???
Also type, I have been looking at the Breyern Rapp's. Any suggestions here??
I have a 1992 318i and I had got a set of style 57 17" 2001 X5 wheels black, tires are 225/50R17 which is still a little to big becasue my care is low but fixing that soon I think those look good. Dont really know if 17" or 18" would be better when it comes to performance. I have 15" as of right now, like i said I'm going to 17" really soon, kinda becasue I got a really good deal on the wheels and tires
I have a question regarding wheels I have found online that I am not sure will fit on my E36. They are 17 inch Rial Salerno wheels with Dunlop Graspic DS3 225/45R17 tires. Will these fit on my E36? Only paying 700 for them. I have found conflicting info online. Also cant find a single pic of it on a e36
Their lighter, and they fit much better. 18's fit, but they rub on the fenders and you need to get them rolled. 17"s are better for performance, as they are usually lighter, and easier to turn. 18"s are more for show.
Those 17" RS wheels, what is the bolt pattern and offset? You need a 5x120mm bolt pattern with around a 40mm offset.
I believe that is correct. Depends on the offset, but you can run spacers to help make the wheel sit farther out. These are best used in conjuction with a wheel stud kit that replaces the factory lug nuts.
