Mein Auto: E92 328i Coupe
Wheel/Rim Recommendation?

Hello!

Somehow, i decided to change my wheel to better looking.
I have 2010 328i coupe.

Well, first, i really like the BMW performance wheel, style 269 and 313.
But their price is TOOOO High.

Is there Any other wheels thats good looking on E92 coupe?

I liked the TSW Nurburgring Matte Gunmettal on it. are they good quality? strong enough that will stay away from the bent or cracks?

Those Replica wheels are really bad.. right? Probably stay away from it?

Oh and what size should i look for? Does 19" works also?

I will wait for the replys from the experts!

Thanks!!

woo! i mine is Space Gray also!
Well, first, Style 269 and 313 are on the BMW website too.
It's really expensive, you can check them on Ebay also, they have OEM wheels, not the replicas. They cost about 1500-3000 i believe.

And to check the TSW wheel,
Check this website.

Well! I checked the stores on the TSW, and some of the tireshops has them in store for selling.
For me, it says it will cost about 1000 bucks. I mean its not that cheap but better than the OEM wheels. Not sure about the quality though.

TSW (and various sub-brands) are fairly well-known as makers of high-quality cast wheels. High quality cast wheels won't get you the durability of the OEM forged wheels, but they're solid enough and will last you quite awhile if you avoid manhandling things.

Well known and good quality, probably not up to par with a company like HRE. However the guys in e46 fanatics rave about them.

You call VMR 200 per rim. It will cost just shy of 900 after tax and shipping

Personally I'm about to pull the trigger on Sportline CS.16 which are also CSL reps but they are forged instead of cast like the VMR reps. The advantage to forged vs cast is durability!
