A lot of heavy wheels in this thread. I am surprised by a lot of 18 inch wheels that are from great manufactures weighing over 19 pounds.

I miss the day of my old SSR Type Cs. They were 12 pounds a wheel. So were my old Work Emotion forged race wheels. They were like 12.4 pounds a piece. They were so light you could pick it up by a spoke and throw it a good 25+ feet. lol

Why do people give the BBS CH-R such a 'heavy' reputation. They are only 1lb heavier in the rear than ZCP but wider...

Because it's all relative. For what you pay, you could get much lighter wheels. They're still nice wheels, I just wouldn't buy them if ultimate weight savings are your goal.

How wide do you need them? There are a whole bunch of options.

closest to M3 OEM size?

Hello gentlemen,

Long time lurker, first post, the reason attached below

Do you mind answering a few questions please?

1. The stock 18" wheels for E92 M3 are as follows:
front 8 1/2 JX18 ET:29
rear 9 1/2 JX18 ET:23

Why do I often see wheels with a different ET such as 35? Does not it hurt the suspension life / handling?

2. Can anyone recommend me a model of 18" light forged wheels closest to OEM size? I failed to find such myself.

Regards,
Nick
