Just basically trying to get some opinions from fellow car ppl, first off I'm pretty sure they will fit but not 100%, also what do y'all think about the look, i think they will look pretty darn good on my red 325ci

Haven't heard of this brand...would look good but at $400 for a set of 4...how well would they hold up if you hit a pot hole? Sometimes the less expensive wheels can bend or even crack I've noticed in posts on other forums and from friends. Just get some info from other people that bought this brand.

That's what I'm worried about as well, I've been trying to do some research on them but haven't had much success.

Well according to the site they pass all the right tests and everything i find on them just says "low budget wheels from a reputable dealer" or something along those lines. I'll keep searching but may just bite the bullet and see what happens.

Also conider the weight....25LBS per wheel before the tire. OUCH!
Also be sure to check the proper offset of the wheel that you need...

Here are a few photos of CSL style wheel's

VMR is the way to go as far as a CSL style wheel! LMs look great also!

Well it turns out that a friend of mine has a set of factory 17" BMW wheels that he is going to sell me. Wish I had an actual picture to show but he says they are off an e36 m3..and I believe these are them.

IMO i dont think any of the e36 rims look good on an e46 plus they are to small for your car unless your dumped

Nah those were 17s, I'll be going to his house this Sunday so I'll grab some pics of them and I'll mock them up on the car to get an idea of what they look like.

Ok update time, so i go to check out/pick up those rims yesterday and i couldn't have been more wrong about the style. They are style 67 reps in 17x7.5, would post pics but I'm sure you all know what they look like, i will however post some once i get them cleaned up and painted or plasti-dipped black.
