18" Wheels

Aite who knows some good 18" wheels that are decently lightweight wihtout breaking my budget. Im being serious. Ive decided 17s on a M3 just arent enough. I currently have stock DS2's but they are no good.

Ill take these wheels and probably gow ith Toyo t1rs as per 4everwinter's recomendation.

Honestly lets keep this below 24 lbs

I think mine are right at 23.9 or so....

Hamann HM2's...

BBS makes good wheels... not all the exspensive...

iForged... exspensive.. but light.

I'd go with BBS... the LM's are good looking and light if thats what your out for...

I dont know what you want them for... weight... looks... with weight in consideration... durability... color.... lip.... size... I mean.. there are about 15 things to think of when you speak of wheels... all depends on what you want... answer all the questions... and you have your self a wheel.

I woudlnt mind something thats multispoke but I really like the HM2's a lot. 23.9 lb is pretty good for a 18". The big thing here is price. I rally dont want to go out and spend 4 grand on wheels. Maybe 2 grand is my limit including tires. I really just dont want to spend too much on wheels. Id just prefer it not be chrome, and if I wanted I could get them refinished or powder coated. Maybe il go gumetal. I want a lip, but a small lip. As far as width goes, i can decide that when I find the wheel I want. I probably wont go bigger than 245's in the rear because of my coilovers.

Christ who knows some semilight wheels in my range?

265's o_o

Did you drop your car much? Did you roll fenders? I want to have a decent drop from my coilovers.

Droped her about a inch in the rear.... and yes... I manually rolled the fenders... more like took a ballpein hammer and hammered away and pushed the inside lip up and over... still rubs only when going over huuuuge bumps... not with WOT though.

Good luck.... I wouldnt.

The lip goes in flat to the ground for a bout a quarter inch then in at a 45 deg angle... rolling with a pipe doesnt do it enough...

If I can really fit 265s rear i might be able to do 255s at all corners

Nope... 235s rub in deep corners.... in the front... I use 225s... they work fine with no rub... as for cornering... its all about suspension components... I dont worry too much about front width now...

What wheels does Dado have on his car? How much do they cost and what is their weight


I think im going to end up going with SSR GT2's or Competitions

Both are pretty light. Im also beginning to wonder whether I really want to upgrade to 18s or stick to 17s
