NICE rims

I WAS LOOKING AROUND FOR SOME RIMS ON THE NET THE OTHER DAY WHEN I WAS BORED AT WORK WHEN I CAME ACROSS THESE: ALT AT-332, AND ALT AT-334

HONESTLY I THINK THEY ARE TWO OF THE BEST LOOKING RIMS I HAVE EVER SEEN AND THEY ARE PRICED REALLY GOOD, BUT I HAVE NEVER HEARD OF THE ALT BRAND NAME BEFORE , HAS ANYONE EVER SEEN THESE RIMS ON AN E36?

Actually I'm really digging those rims too man. They have simplicity which no BBS has... maybe BBS are lighter or somehow better for performance though, I don't know about that.

ya but i gave up on the performance part of my car when i decided to by a 318 lol , 328s were way too much on insurance, so i m not too worried about those rims slowing my car down cuz its already pretty slow

your gonna regret putting those things on your 318

i had some 17-inch M3 replica rims on mine for 2 days and it made the car feel like an absolute brick. i mean, i know all about being slow... i drive an automatic 318 vert... but big heavy no-name rims REALLY make a big (negative) difference on any car, and ESPECIALLY a 318.

trust me, you'll regret it.

They remind me of Breytons, vision maybe? I can't remember the exact name...I like the seond one with the lip.

I had a set of multi spoke rims, every time I washed the car I regretted it...I had 15 spoke ADR's. Every time I had to wash each spoke by hand including the lip behind the spokes. I think I spent more time on the rims than the rest of the car. Never again will I buy a multi spoke. Well, I'd make the exception for some M5 replica's but that's it! Nothing above a 6 spoke.

First one looks like Carlsson 1/16 knock off and the second one looks like Breyton Magic Racing knock off ... They look "okay", but wont look good on E36.

What's your budget? it might help narrowing down the options.
