You can install those wheels which are 18" and should have no problem with fit. You may encounter a "harsher" ride because of lower sidewalls of the tires. Yes you will need to buy new tires because your car did not come with 18" wheels but you do not have to get them from the dealer. The rims will have to be bought from a dealer but you can order them from Circle BMW or Pacific BMW for better pricing than your local dealer. One of the board sponsors is Tire Rack and they have excellent pricing on tires. If you want to buy tires that match those that came with the ZHP package (Michelin Sport) expect to pay in the $250 range for each tire.

Very expensive if you buy new.

Check with Andy, he had a set for sale a few months back.


Edit: You may want to try a photochop with those rims. I've seen them on non ZHP's and IMHO, they just don't look right.

Wait I was just thinking.

Those style 135M's, why wouldn’t they, (on the 18'' wheels of course), look good on non "ZHP"s.

The 330 with the ZHP is the same body as the 325i, with the exception of the aero kit, which im planning on getting also. (But it’s very expensive )

The ZHP has a lowered suspension.. When you put on bigger wheels with lower profile tires, the gap between the fender and the top of the tire appears bigger (it isn't).. To achieve the same look, you'll need some suspension mods...

Question Question for LDV330i

You and I have nearly identical cars except mine is silver. I have the OEM Mich Pilot Sports mounted w/14k miles. I am very unhappy with a sort of loud groaning noise that I think is due to the Michelins at low speeds (~10-20 mph), especially in gradual turns. The noise is almost like the tires are being "dragged" or rolled laterally over the pavement. Have you experienced a similar noise? If so, what did you do about it?
