Wheels for my 328i

I have been debating back and forth on what OEM wheels to put on my 328i since I hate the stock ones. I found a website that sells refurbished like new OEM wheels and I cannot decide between what model I should go with. Here are the styles:







I'm leaning towards the first style since they look more sporty but I keep going back to the second style. I need some serious opinions and I'll add a few pictures of my car.

I like the second one. It's like the 397 wheels on the sports line. They're heavy tho

3d one no doubt. Allows plenty of space to visualize the brakes (esp if having Brembos); EASIER to clean from brake dust, less arms to clean.

True the last comment on weight. I would look on BMW's catalog to see the weight. A 10 lb lighter set could save you 800$ in fuel each summer- esp in the v light 18-20" sets.

From top to bottom:
  • Style 414: this is the standard wheel with F30 Luxury Line
  • Style 395: F30 standalone option
  • Style 392: this is the standard wheel with F30 Sport Line
I vote for Style 395.

$800 in fuel each summer ? This definitely needs an explanation please.

The first pic are not Lux Line wheels; the 3rd choice are not Sport Line wheels. All of these wheels are 17"; all the "Lines" had 18" wheels.

I'd go with the first choice--I don't think I've ever seen an F30 with those style wheels; it would be something different.

The first ones look a lot like this luxury line:



But I do agree the wheels they all look like are 18" BMW OEM

Depends on the market. In most BMW F30 sales regions globally 17" Style 414 is the standard F30 Luxury Line wheel design and 17" Style 392 is standard for Sport Line. Some markets use different approaches for OE wheel options; for example, Australia doesn't offer either Style 414 or Style 392 while the USA offers Style 392 on certain F30 grades but not Style 414.

See attached PDF pricelist document from Germany domestic market. Page 18 shows wheel options for Sport Line, page 22 for Luxury Line, and pp. 40-44 for all wheel options. Note this is for F30 LCI; some of the pre LCI F30 wheel designs are shown at http://www.bmwstylewheels.com/3/F30+

No it doesn't--OP lives in Rhode Island. US market is the only one that matters for his question.

If someone in the US asks "What's the best BMW for me?" you don't tell him a "2-Series Active Tourer" or a 320d, just because those are sold in the global market.

originalwheels.com sells Style 414 and Style 392 wheels to people in Rhode Island. As stated previously, Style 414 is associated with "Luxury Line" and Style 392 with "Sport Line" for BMW F30 cars.

End of discussion.

My 2 cents, I'd choose the ones already on your car. I do not like the first 2 and the 3rd choice looks similar enough (to me) to the stock that I wouldn't change stock for them unless it was a swap with no charge.

Of the 3 this would be my choice as well, but personally I would only get new wheels if you went with 18"

I vote for #3.

Has anyone ordered from this site? Are they actual OEM wheels, and are they in good condition?

One of my friends purchased wheels for his Dodge Charger from originalwheels.com. Regarding your questions:
1.) Yes, the wheels were OE.
2.) Very good condition; my friend said the quality of the refinishing process was so good, it was hard to tell the wheels were used.

I really hate the Premium rims (#1). I think that #2 is the way to go!
