nice choice of rims!! :thumbs :thumbs


first off, i'd go with the silver. i think the chrome is too classy for our bimmers. however, if you really like the chrome, then go for it. it's all about personal preferences.

i'd go with the 18's. no bigger.

tire sizes, i'd go with:

235/40/18 for the fronts
255/35/18 for the rears

I agree with AZ here.... very nice choice of rims. I've always liked those. As far as chrome or silver... that's a real tough one. If you go chrome, you have to black out the windows. There's no half-pimpin with those chrome rims, it's either all or nothing. Either way, I think it will look great.

silver definatly.

you must get ATLEST 18". 18" best overall, 19" for show.

the rim specs are incorrect. those are all for M3s. for your car, largest you can get is 8.5 wide rims anything wider you must roll your fenders.

i would suggest 18x8.5 all around with 235/40 front and 255/35 rear tires.

maximum tire width is 255 without rolling fenders for reg 3 series.

Lastly, welcome to the ACS whore club :thumbs

whats mettallic saphire ? im assuming its blue. ok hers the thing, mettalic + chrome = ewww. especially silver mettalic. black is ok but otherwise, chrome looks good on solid colors, red, blue, black. but it stil ldepends on the rims, chrome is something that must be dealt with tastefully. $0.02

get the silver ACS in 18x8.

btw does breyton inspiration bother anyone else ??? two specifically made for bmw rims that look like this. i personally like the no lip on teh ACS though.

black saphire metallic is bmws metallic black currently. jetblack is their non metallilc black. diff being..metallic black has metallic chips in the paint to make the paint more durable. jetblack is PURE black...paint is softer than metallic black.

breyton rims tend to be soft. meaning they are easier to be damaged.

I'd go with Chrome because this will give your Beemer a more beefy look. Silver is nice but its more of the sporty look. The crome will give it both Sporty and classy! By the way, do you know what knid of rims are on that black M3?

I dont think they are the Hamman PG2 becuase the PG2's have slightly thicker spokes. I'm not to sure though. Let me know if anyone finds out cause I'm lovin those rims!!!!!! Need to get em for my Beemer!!! :beer

Those sizes are'nt for an M3, they are for a E39. BUt they do make the right offset for your car, not to worry. 8.5 front's-et38 9.0 rear's-et45. I reccomend a 225/40/18 front, 255/35/18 rear.
