18" winter rim options?

Hi all - I'm looking for an 18" CSL rep or stock E90 M3 wheel to put on my E90 M3 for winter use. Any options? What are you all doing for winter rims?

called tirerack to get a set of non-staggered 18's with dunlop 3d's, they have the info for what fits but only if you call. i hear mixed reviews of the csl reps as far as quality/durability, but thats just what i've read. imo i wanted the oem 18's for winter but they seem too wide and i'd rather not tempt fate with that setup.

I've had CSL reps and they were fine for winter on an E46 M3. I did notice they were a bit heavier and didnt seem optimized for the car. When I put the 19" CSL OEM back on the car really came to life. I would consider another set for winter duty.

Where are you finding 18" OEM E90 replicas? That's the wheel I'm looking for. I'm not worried about width as I dont do enough winter driving for it to be a big issue.

didnt find replicas for the oem 18's, just figured to get a used set off someone going aftermarket, since they wouldnt cost 'too' much. the set i got was 1620 with tpms and shipping. they were borbet 18's on clearance that look ok.
