if your car sits at a decent height i'd say not too bad, but hard to just imagine, got a pic of the 318?

The wheels look good, but I still think 17"s fit the E36 best.

They look gawdy and rice to me, but so do chrome grills and chrome door handles...
18" tend to increase the rice-factor as well.

I think you'll be able to find nicer rims for that price! They have a cheap look to them (a lot of thing going on). IMO

I think those were meant for an Escalade or Hummer. Too tacky for my taste but that's just me.


Just not a fan of too much chrome on these cars.

It is all about personal preference at the end of the day. However, as the Guys have said, look around, take you time and make sure the wheels you choose make the right sort of statement because IMO, wheels can make or break a car's appeal.

this coming from a guy who has clear corners? and 60 doallar spark plugs?, rice is a wing, a fart cannon and some underglow.

Glad you aren't going for first ones, I just saw those exact wheels on a Range Rover today and I gotta say, they look worse in person than they do in the pictures!

As for the second, they aren't my style, and I don't think they really work with the car. They look dated in my opinion. Also, I think you should stick with 17" wheels max. 18 and up look odd

Cool. Not only do I think they look better on the E36, they have a nicer ride and much better performance
