    Light wheels

    What are some options for some good light weight wheels not to expensive?
    Looking into the Apex Arc 8 and maybe some Enkeis.
    17 or 18 inch is needed.

    I like those Enkei RPF1. Would be good for my use.

    Any other suggestions?

    LTW5's...... you can get them in 17" or 18" and the offsets are perfect for wide tires. I have the 18x10's in the rear and w/ a 285/35 NT05 they only weigh in at 46lbs and don't rub at all on my H&R sport lowered e92 w/ no fender rolling. I don't run a spacer either. W/o a tire they weighed 18.2lbs each and are said to be much stronger than the Kosei's. I personally think they look better too.

    LTW5's look good. Would prob get them in 17 inch to piss off the ricers, LOL.
    I also think D-Forces look nice, never seen them installed though.

    Oh didn't know.
    I am digging those LTW5's.
    Maybe get a Group Buy going for them?

    That would be cool. I'm just iffy as to how they would look on an E90. I would get them in silver, my car is SGM. Thoughts?

    I'm jet black and would get then in the closest thing to flat black.
    I think silver on SGM would look great.
    Photoshop expert here?

    Here's a few I just took today. Lowered on H&R sports+ perches in the front. Fronts are 18x9 w/ 245/40 NT05's and rears are 18x10 w/ 285/35 NT05's. I have a 3mm spacer in front which is the minimum needed to keep the rim off of the strut. There is about .5-.75" of space between the rear tire and shock.

    Thanks, I should have traded you those pics for pics of your fueling set-up...........hind sight is 20/20

    You can't tell from the pics but they are actually concaved and look even better in person. You can't argue w/ a 10+lb weight savings per wheel over stockers either, especially considering I went way up in rim width and tire width. The 17's weigh even less too,obviously, but I wanted a good blend of looks and performance since these are my dd's.

    Te LTW5's are a little more expensive than Kosei's but they look so much better and are much stronger from what people have reported. The best place to get them is from Turner or Bimmerworld

    Now here is a setup that puts function over looks. Not that it doesn't look good, but you get my point.

    Those are stunning. Or beautiful, as Enzo Ferrari would say.

    These are the only 2 I have of the rear right now. They don't do it justice. In person the rears look mean. I had wanted to go 295/35 in the rear and 265/35 in the front to begin with but didn't want to push the envelope too much. I think that might be my next set though.
