The wheels in question would be reps. Real ones are 19's only.


If it's a low offset, you'll need a fender roll.

If it's a high offset, you'll need spacers and a fender roll.

Please tell me it's a 5 speed, also, I recommend 17s any thing bigger than 17 looks a little funky, For example, here's a set of style 39s from an E36 M3.

328i at 16! What a great first car. Take her to one of those driver control clinics by the BMW CCA and both of you will feel better about her driving.

And welcome to the 'fest!

M6 wheels are sick looking, IMO. Alot of work needs to be put into getting them to fit though, and based on what I read/see over the webz, you'll have to put some lowz to get the wheels to look awesome. Iv been debating these rims myself...

Those rims look horrible on teh e36.

If you want something bigger than a stock 17, the biggest rim that still looks respectable is the CSL reps from modbargains. Or if you want to spend a little less, check out the APEX ARC 8's. They are super light and look schmexy.

True. I think if you get good 18" reps, you'd be okay. Because lets face it, most of the people around dont know that M6 wheels are only 19". 18" look good on an E36 IMO, as long as the reps are made nicely

Im so so on the wheels but i dont think the 19's will fit even if you wanted them too, i'd go reps if thats the style of wheel that you want.

Autos are never good, but the slush boxes the BMW bought from GM for the E36s are especially terrible.

Can of spray paint will take care of the color Stickers to make the center caps black are available from most vendors.

yes, unless of course you want your "little lady" to be driving a car that is unsafe. Heavier wheels mean more rolling resistance = worse braking, worse handling, worse gas mileage, slower acceleration, the works. Some DS2's or LTW's or e46 m3 wheels would all be good choices as well.

an extra 5 pounds on each wheel isnt gonna make the car unsafe If you had rims made of concrete maybe but not M6 reps...

Regretfully I must disrespectfully disagree, E46 M3 wheels are a terrible choice, for any car, including an E46 M3. Those are probably the most visually offensive wheels BMW has ever produced and any one who disagrees is silly.

while it may not be completely unsafe, it will change the dynamics of the car and from some parents point of view, degradation of the performance of the vehicle may be unacceptable(to some, my aunt in particular hah) Just stating the facts. I'm more into function than style, I do not condone cheap coilovers and crappy wheels at all.
