    Hi guys,

    So the search facility doesn't seem to like me very much and can't seem to find what I am looking for.

    I have some horrible 15" alloys on my Coupe. they don't do anything for me at all. What I am looking for is the best setup for my car, wheel wise. I.e. what will offer the best handling/ performance. So best width alloy/tyres for the front and same for the rear.

    Any advice would be great, are there any proven setups for my BM?

    Cheers
    Kaan

    I've had a Rep Mv2 18 inch on my with 225/40/18 8J and I didn't liked them.

    Now I have genuine BMW Motorsport front 7.5inch back 8.5inch with 225/45/17 (should be 245/40/17 but this is better set for me)
    and I'm really happy with them. I think if you want to have a bit of comfort, stability you should get nice 17 inch OEM alloys, there are plenty of them around :-)

    17" E36 staggered motorsport rims IMO. Fit 1st time, no rubbing even if you slam the car and keeps a decent ride quality.....
