IMO 18's look way too big on e30's. I've seen a few of them and they just dont fit the car the greatest. 17's deepdish is the way to go....

My 89m3 have 17's.The 18's are for my 91-318.I think 17's is the way to go on my 318.Wouldn't mind a set of 16''bbs style rims but would rather spend that money on my m3.
thanks for all the help guys.

I used to roll on 18" x 8" wheels.. loved it. You will feel a significant loss of acceleration when going from a stock setup, but if you have the extra power to overcome that hurdle.. all the power to ya!
