Hammans are pretty damn tight...

Like Shaha said...any kind of 5 spoke will look sweet.

I'd go with silver rims since your car is blue.

there are so many M rims out there...why go with anything else? also, there is much to be said for original parts on your car.

i love the original rims on my 98 M3...not sure but i think they are unique to that year. I could be wrong. Pretty cool though. BUT, everytime i see a lineup of the M rims available, i have to wonder...

My personal opinion on rims for the BM's are original, you have to stick to original wheels, not fussy which ones, but have to be M wheels or AC. I have seen lots of M3's with TSW's etc etc, and, well, it just doesnt look the same.

Here's a question....

I have 17" rims on there now, and the rear wheel looks like it has about an inch of clearance. If i got 18" wheels, i guess i would need even thinner tires?

man I hate to think how rough it would ride then,...

yes you would, for that reason and the real reason which is to keep the overall diameter the same...

the best rims on an m3 (black car) are bbs CH's and silver car. hammans.

look for some ASA or BBS rims to. Thay make some sick ones. I would recommend to get 18" rims. The AC Schintzer are really nice to.
Let me know what you get and send some pics.
Also what year m3 would you recommend to buy?
