Hey guys, I've been lookin at wheels for weeks now and I can't decide which ones would look best, and which I should save my pennies for. I've found Radenergies that look pretty nice, but right now I'm leaning towards HRE 448R. Anyway, the reason I posted this is cause I wanted ideas. So come on, post pics of the E46s with the sickest, rawest, nastiest wheels that you absolutly love.

HREs are shitty wheels. Spend your hard earned $$$ on a quality rim.

Why are HRE shitty? And what's a quality rim?

They are way to much $$$ for what they are. I have had 2 sets, never again would I buy HREs. They look nice, but should be 1/2 the price for the quality you get.

How about BBS LMs. What's your opinion on those?

Anything by BBS is a good choice. LMs are gorgeous.

Yes they are. Though I don't know where to look for them. tirerack.com has only 18x8s that say they fit my car. I wanted to maybe try and squeeze a 9" back tire on there, but I don't know if that's possible.

What other wheels do you recommend, and what are good places online to get them?

With the LMs you can't get a staggard setup unless you do some fender modifications in the rear but 19x8.5 all around works

I personally like BBS wheels, OZ, RD Sport, RACmonolite for Bimmers.

Where'd you get your RACmonolites from? And do they come in applications that will fit a Non-M E46? I'm at the forum for racmonolites right now and everyone is only talking about M3s.

I dont think they have started to make all e46 applications.
What style rim do you like? Mesh, 5 spoke?

Both depending on how they're done. I like LM mesh, and also HRE 840R mesh(but those are out of the question), but I also like ACS Type IV (non race) 5 spoke. I like Alpinas to a point. I'm open to pretty much anything that looks good.

Anyone have experience with O-Z ultraleggera? I think those are the ones I'm leaning towards now. They're rather inexpensive, look pretty damn good, and they're light as hell. Any cons?
