OEM Rims in Toronto?

Any place to buy OEM rims in TO other than the dealer? Dealer is too expensive. WAY too expensive.

Thanks.

maybe the "For Sale" section? usually stuff is slightly less than the dealership there.

All the really nice rims come in 17" sizes or greater. I wanna stay at 16". 17" means I'll have to lower my car = more money on new suspension. With 16's I can stay with the stock ride height and my car won't look like a 4x4.

it all depends on what tire size you run.
Im guessing you want 16's to run 205/55-16?
I believe 17" with 225/45-17 would be the same.... no?

Yeah, the diameter of the rim and tire together would be almost identical with 17" or 16" rims. The problem is the lower profile tires on 17's will make the fender gap more noticeable/look worse. I've seen pics of e36's with 17's on stock suspension. Doesn't look very good IMHO. 16's are ok, it still looks stock.

really? I think it's ok.


on the other hand, I think the stock 16" and lower on an E36 is horrible

That's what I thought. The first pic looks lower than stock. Second pic looks stock (obviously it is) love it or hate it. Non M e36's with 17's and stock suspension look like 4x4's. JMO. Thanks for the help though.
