Looking to get new rims - opinions?

Hi Everyone!
I'm looking to get a different set of rims but I just don't know what I want, I'm very picky. I would love to hear what you guys think looks best on the car, what you have, etc. The rims I currently have are too big and are causing more damage than pleasure at this point. I prefer deep dish rims in the back but even if their not I still want to see what everyone else is doing! The car is a black 1994 325is


These are the TSW's I have on my car now.

I had a set of ASA AR1's in 18x8 and they were a BBS rep with a dish lip. I liked the look of them, but found them kinda heavy. See here:


Lowered on Koni's:


Stock Ride Height:


They are for sale BTW

Heres what a set of M Contours looks like:




Now Im not sure what your budget is, but their are quite a few BMW wheels that would look really good. M Contours, Style 32's, Style 68's. I recommend these because a full set can usually be found for less then $500.

But, I currently have a hard on for the APEX ARC8 wheels. Specially the concave ones.

See here on my buddies carin Anthracite Gray:




And the peice du resistance:


Those are 18's though. Honestly 17" is the best wheel size. Best combination of wheel and tire profile.

I don't know what people would do if you weren't part of this forum!! You are the only person that ever has a response..so thank you!

How much are you selling your rims for?

And I'm in love with your friends entire car including his wheels. If I had a dick i'd have a "hard on" for both! How much did he pay for his?

I hate the way contours look. I don't know why but they just aren't for me. It takes a lot for me to like a set of wheels which makes me finding something very difficult Mine were basically free I traded my system for them! lol

I just like wide back tires..I think they look good. You can't tell in this picture but maybe you'll understadn what i'm trying to say! lol

I dont know how much he paid, but I know how much he put into it. Its actually for sale right now with an asking price of $15,000. His wheels are 17x8.5 all around. The rears fit fine, but anything bigger then an 8 on the front you need to roll your fenders. My fronts were 8, and the rears 8.5". I was looking to get $1,000 for them, but only the front tires are good. The rears need to be replaced because I ran over a nail and two screws

Here is his VF Engineering Supercharger kit:





You might like DSII's:




How about BBS Style 5's (Silver M3) or Style 24's on the Green Vert:


Or theirs always AC Schnitzer wheels:
