    Hi guys,

    Tring to make my silver 328i look good on a budget. What do you think of these rims:

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/19-M6-Style-1-...3A1|240%3A1318

    Do you think they will look ok on the car? what are the diffrerences from the fake and genuine items? recon they will look good powder coated black?

    thanks

    i think blackmagic has these on his car
    the real ones will be the wrong offset,and these are liable to come close to your wheelarch at et35
    if you're going for a black finish,why not look at genuine bm wheels in need of a refurb
    what i've felt,what i've known
    never shined through in what i've shown.

    I had these 18" m3 rep's on my old 328i sport, it may help to give you some options/ideas.

    i have replica m6 on my e46 and it looks good, ill post some pictures on tomorrow. i had them on e36 to, but it looks better on e46. my wheels are black with brushed finish on spoke front. and i fink replicas are ok, at least what i have. i have been driving pretty hard and scruff some, but no cracks or anything. 1st off all you dont have to pay more money just because they are genuine.

    Considering the price they look great

    There is nothing wrong with replica wheels and to be honest many people won't be able to tell the difference

    Some people will try to tell you that the quality will be crap but to be honest if you drive carefully and avoid pot holes and kerbs they should last. Alloy is far softer than steel and once it's bent or buckled it is more often than not SCRAP

    I personally think that the best suited wheel for the E36 is the split rim type as fitted on the 328 sport. Hence the reason I chose the 20" TSW Kayalami running 225/30 20 fronts and 235/30 20 rear. I am also lowered as low as I can go on my H&R coilovers, the fronts are just off the limit and the rear's??? Well I just fitted the springs and binned the adjusters

    Be sure to post up pictures once you've purchased and fitted your wheels
