Well that works out to around $500 a rim so you lucked out. I see them listed at just under $800 a piece.

What your guy's pov on Enkei's? I like the looks of the EKM3 a whole lot. They seem fairly inexpensive. How do they drive? What is the quality? How do they perform on BMW? A 2006 325i to be exact? Looks like biggest size is 18" -8".

Thanks a lot

check out those new Linea Corsa LC888. Theyre a bit heavy but a very nice wheel. Reminds me of HRE P43SC.

While I do have a budget I would like to purchase relatively light wheels. I found that the BBS wheels weigh about 26 lbs while the Enkei's weigh about 23lbs...a real bargain in my opinion. I realize some of you might dismiss all these options altogether and just wait to afford a better more expensive option. Anyway, these are my choices. What would you do?
Apex EC-7. No brainer.

My vote goes for Apex as well. I didn't want to spend too much on wheels last year and went with Arc-8s. They don't have concave like the EC-7 and are more dated looking, but are roughly 2 pounds lighter per wheel.

Apex ARC - 8. Not a fan of the style of the EC7s, but to each his own. EC7 are heavier than ARC8s.
