Default Imola - wheel suggestions?

Looking to get a set of silver or gunmetal/anthracite wheels but I have the inability to be decisive...almost pulled the trigger on silver APEX FL-5s but can't get myself to do it without considering more options.

Thought about the stancey route with BBS LM (reps bc i'm poor) but I think I'd want to stick to the lightweight look for when I someday go to the track. Love the ARC-8s but I want to try for a different look since almost every e46 has them.

Looking for lightweight 18x9.5 ET 35 or something along those lines that won't break the bank. So far I've considered:
  • Enkei NT03
  • APEX FL-5
  • APEX ARC-8
  • VMR V710

Any suggestions and pictures you guys have would be great. Thanks!

Edit: thinking squared setup

I do not own a set, but I'm a big fan of the Apex SM-10- sexy, lightweight, economical, and good brake clearance.

I have sm-10ís and think theyre beautiful, but i dont think id like them on Imola. The CSL style wheels look clean, i think i would go the BBS RGR route. Its got the web look and a lip on a light wheel.


This car belongs to someone here and it is sexy!!

You're forgetting some of the best 18" options: RAC, Volk, CCW, and Forgeline.





(couldn't find an Imola E46 on GA1R's)

I really like the Volks and wheel #3, but these options may be too spendy.

This ^ haha my budget is around APEX pricing. I would get TE37s if it were that easy lmao

Appreciate everyone's suggestions. I was so fixated on FL-5 that I didn't give SM-10's a chance. I saw them on an E36 and E92 and remembered I wasn't a fan.

Now I've been staring at these screens for 30 mins
