So recently just purchased first e46 m3... still in love with the car. Looking to replace my stock 19" wheels with Hyper Silver Apex Arc 8s, should i go with 18" or 19"? people keep saying go 18" but i want to keep my tires. Also Its jet black with a white 3m wrap over it currently. With Gruppe M exhaust. Anyone have any recommendations for a good mid pipe or headers that will add more of a deeper tone to the sound? Let me know some advice, still new on here.

Stick with 19's, 18's are too small for this car IMO.

Get 18s. IMO, the more rubber looks aggressive, the ride quality is better, the tires are less expensive, and they handle better. What benefits does 19 have? "looks?"

I got 19s for mine, and I track my car a lot. Granted I'm definitely no expert (joined here to learn more) but I've been extremely happy with my 19s. Just my opinion.

18 ARC 8 Apex wheels are the best wheels for the e46 m3 period.

Why?

1. Incredible weight
2. Sizes are unmatched
3. 18inch tires cost less
4. Looks amazing
5. Looks even better when lowered
6. Cheaper than any other suitable wheel
7. Value does not drop
8. Variety of color

I can't think of a better wheel period.
