I'll get the 19s, until some nice forged wheels like RACs are available.

I'm afraid I haven't, but I would be keen to know what sensible reasons there are for going with the 18" option, since I am not keen on the look of the 19" ones.

While I prefer 19s, 18s are less expensive, tires are less expensive, the ride is slightly better, rims are less vulnerable to potholes and handling just as good with only a tad less steering response. However, if you decide to go aftermarket, the 19s will be easier to sell.

Thanks for the response... So am i right in thinking that there is no significant performance disadvantage in going with the stock 18" rims then?

I've heard the pretty much exactly the same comment from a pro race car driver regarding the wheel choice (18" vs. 19") on another sports car on TV, but can't remember what care they were talking about...

I am not sure if I agree with you on the aftermarket thing though. There will be many E90 owners who will be dying to get their hands on either type of M3 wheels I think.

That is correct, no performance disadvantage. In fact, if you get serious about tracking you will find you will need to go to 18s to get a decent selection of R-Comp tires.

However, with the E46 M3 the rears had too much offset for the regular 3-series. I suspect it may be the same with the E92.

Why not just get the 18" wheels since you're giving them away? Would be a bit less expensive to start!

Do you really think the E92 M3 wheels will fit a normal 330?
