Wheel Decision?

So, after a year and a half of driving the 330, our family has managed to bend 5 wheels.

like that^^

so...we are going to need new wheels. Moms paying..so shes alright with paying up to 500 or so a wheel. What do you guys suggest?
Keep in mind we drive on mountain passes all the time, being we live in the mountains. The roads also arent the best quality wise...so pot holes are an issue we cant get around.


What do you suggest? We need strong and lightweight(if possible). I know nothing about the subject, so help me out.

here is a pic of the car. also...wheels have to look good.

Go with the BBS RGR rims, get them in a smaller size no bigger than 17inches. Plus the RGR line is lightweight and they're really sharp looking. I see you're not getting too much help so check out The Tire Rack - Your performance experts for tires and wheels their prices are really competitive and you can preview your car with the rims on it. Good luck and post pics when you get her new shoes on!

Four rings beats five liters.

I'd say get something forged.... thats as strong as they come now days... unless you want to spend a fortune...

5 wheels?... you've done something there!

Forged for sure. BBS RGR's and a lot of their lineup is forged, although their forged wheels usually run about $600 a wheel.

I'd say Hamann HM2's because they're clean looking, although heavy.

Nothign bigger than 17s for your mom. Don't get wheels that look busy, in 17s on an e46 I think you should look for a 5 spoke wheel.
