Hey everyone,

Was thinking about getting aftermarket wheels for the M3. Any recommendations?

Under 1200 for a set of four is what I'm thinking. I've seen wheels for under 200 per wheel, but not sure about the quality of those

TONs of options in that price range, Apex wheels are some of the most popular at that price point. For the more budget priced wheels (our house brand Alzor for example) as long as they are from a reputable source ( ) can be fantastic options, I have several guys running our new Alzor 758s for winter wheels on the E9X M and I think they look fantastic.

Most common you can see are Apex and Enkei's for under 1200bucks. Then there's BBS and Volks and work wheels..

I went with Konig Hypergram just to be different, flow formed but strong and light and inexpensive. Pic of the wheel with my car.

If you're just after looks and dont want to spend a lot of money. You can buy a set of 219M (E9X M3) wheels. I think they are honestly one of the best looking wheels you can put on an E46 M. You can use the savings for better tires.

you're re-using the tires?? Well you can google a chart on what size of tires is safe to use on what width of wheels. 265 wide is recommended for 9.5 wide up to 275 wide, minimum for a 9.5 wide is 245.
