Default Value of OEM wheels

What is a set of OEM staggered 18" E46 M3 wheels worth in good condition?

Selling on Craigslist.

Similarly: if I were looking for a nice used set of OEM 19s, what's the most I should spend?

Correct. You see them in the FS section frequently for $300 with moderate rash/no issues. Minor rash to near perfect is $600.
I don't recall the last time I saw an unblemished set; just normal tire changes get most of them over many years.

I can't answer the 19 question, can't imagine they're much different. Not sure why someone would go that route unless they were trying to take a car back to pure stock. Weigh more, tires cost more, just no advantages to them.

I see the 19s going for more ($800-$1200 depending upon condition), just because they’re no longer available and a lot of people like that look for a street car (me included). I’m not tracking or racing the car so I don’t care about weight. TBH, this car isn’t fast enough for that anyway — it’s at most a good stoplight racer. And the world has come to appreciate polished faces more these days. Problem is they’re more costly to refurb, which hurts resale value.

I bought a set of 19" style 67s a few months ago for $600.

Lol yea oem 19ís sell for much more than oem 18ís. You see multiple sets of the 18ís for sale on Craigslist for roughly $200-$300 a set. Oem 19ís I see are $600-$1300 depending on condition.

And the oem 19ís to me is the baseline so as long as you donít go heavier with aftermarket either is fine. The 19ís look much better to me as well. To not understand why people buy the oem 19ís bcs theyíre heavy, your m3 better not have sunroof or heavy plush stock leather seats.

full power, adjustable lumber, adjustable bolstering, heated, leather M3 seats weight in at a whopping 4 lbs per seat more than than cloth manual unheated M3 seats-- of which 2 of those lbs are leather.

OE 19s vs some light 18s are 30 lbs lbs total, of unsprung rotating mass-- which is like taking 120-300 lbs of weight out of the car in acceleration, handling, and braking, depending on who's math you believe to be correct (plus better ride quality and cheaper tires).

Hardly analogous to the 45 lb sunroof, much less 2 lbs per seat of leather

Light weight 18s are far and away the best bang for the buck performance mod for the car.

I was referring to our full power leather seats as heavy, which isn’t exactly out of place in our m3’s considering our cars are gt sports coupe based off a sedan. With our very convenient sunroof for those nice sunny days indicates that as well. Oem 19’s seems like a pretty logical bmw design based on those facts.

I did mention that oem 19’s I use as a baseline, so I’m fine with it. It’s when I add aftermarket parts where I care about the weight (must be lighter than stock). If I was so against 19’s, I wouldn’t have considered a sedan based car that weighs 3,450lbs as my fun car.

And as Obioban pointed out, the fully optioned power leather seats are only 4lbs heavier, so attempting to draw an analogy there is silly.

19s are just worse at all things.
