Question New wheels for M3 e36

Hi guys,

My 1996 E36 M3 sits on 4 X SSR GT3 without any rub.
Front : 18X8.5 et38 / 235-40R18
Back : 18X9.5 et43 / 255-35R18

Two of them was scratched ( rim ) by one of the previous owner and the paint begin to flake just a little bit on another wheel.

I think its the time to buy new wheels...and I need 4X tires too !!!

I really like the BBS LM wheels but I don't want to pay 3@4K for tires/wheels package for a 10K car...

There is alot of replicas, some of them looks really nice but I dunno which brand is *good*... Any advices welcome !!!

I read alot of good things about LINEA CORSE Lemans wheels but they no more offer them in 18 inch.

I would like to keep the same dimensions wheels but it may be easier to go with 18X8 and 18X9... don't know what you think ?

Like you can see I'm a bit lost right now so any advices are welcome !!!

Since you've tried a staggered setup, why not try a squared setup next? I ran two sets of 18x9 on mine.

A good option without spending a ton on 3pc wheels are the light weight APEX wheels, if I was to do it again i'd go 18x9.5 all around.

Something like this:

Nice wheels and good option but I really like the BBS LM style...
I just missed a set of originals BBS Gold LM, the guy was asking 2.2K for the 4 wheels... Damn it !!!

I can see your car have an intercooler...
Is it Turbo ?

btw that isn't my car, search threads created by me to see mine.
That was just an example of what apex 9.5s all around would look like.

It seems that you are asking for opinions but already made up your mind?

LoL I was looking at the Apex wheels right now...

I was more looking for good advices about LM replicas brands or I was hoping someone offer me his used BBS LM's...

The Apex wheels seems a gr8 option, especially the EC-7...
For now I would say the Apex are the plan B...
