M3 E92 competition wheels VS 18" wheels

Besides the size and looks can anyone take about the advantages/disadvantages between the two rims?

Tire sizes different?

I think the Comp Wheels are wider than the OEM 18s and that means you can run a wider tire.

And it looks a lot meaner from behind... The weird thing is the sales sticker on the '12 e92 I'm looking to buy says the wheels with the comp package are 18"
