Z3 Wheels

I have a 2001 Z3 3.0 coupe. I am looking for 18" aftermarket wheels and am not finding anything very exciting in staggered sizes. Anyone have any pics or links? Also can someone tell me what the backset/offset should be? Thanks.

Depends what you want to spend and what you like, tirerack has the SE KV5 or you can have your wheels painted to the car color

I have checked Tire Rack. They do not seem to have any staggered wheels.

those are always gorgeous

(I think the weight on TR is wrong, though. 24 for 18x8.5 and 22.9 for 18x9? something isn't right. )

Hey Jakked,I really like those wheels. Thanks for the info. Your car appears to be lowered. What shock and spring package are you using?

have you looked into ltw 5's. if im not mistaken, they come in 18x10 rears and 18x8.5 fronts. the offsets should be correct for a 3.0 coupe and they weigh in the area of 18lbs each. with a decent set of tires they should be around your price range.
