Default Aftermarket CSL wheels for stock '06 Comp?

Hello, i have a stock '06 Competition package and need to replace a leaking rear wheel. Dealership quoted $604 per wheel, which is expensive for me.

I cannot find a used wheel online that is actually in stock at the moment but i found new aftermarket CSL 19's that appear to be $668 for the full set and am wondering if this will mess with my car? I've read the threads about different aftermarket setups but its unclear if the 'CSL' will affect my ride since i've not done any modifications to it.

Wait, so you spent the extra $ for a more special zcp m3 but can’t shell out $600 for one zcp wheel? I wouldn’t go aftermarket but if you do don’t buy those ebay. The rears are 19x9.5 +40. Those rears would look like spares with how sunk it is, compared to original.

Can’t you repair that one wheel?

Go to a wheel repair shop and have it fixed. I assume you have a small crack (hopefully) that needs to be welded. Not the most ideal, but its better (IMO) than buying a full set of low-quality replicas.

If you can't stomach $600 for a wheel, sell the car. Lots of worse repair bills you can be hit with on an E46.

Plus it just seems wrong to go from OEM to replica on a ZCP.

Just replace it with a nice set of 19” ARC8s then. You’ll get all new wheels for a bit more money than just one OEM wheel. I have not heard of any ARC8 setups causing catastrophic/life threatening problems.

I know like you, you’re trying to find better value for your hard earned dollar. There are some things that aren’t a necessary “wallet rapage” and some things that are definitely needed to be done 110% correctly.

Make sure you get ///M Offset so your car won’t sacrifice in performance and stability. Enjoy your search!

I've only put about 200 miles on it in the last 4+ years because I have kids and devote my precious few solo hours every month (aka naptime on weekends) to my motorcycle. I've spent more on car washes than gas. But I sold my wifes ride yesterday and she needs something for the next few months while we wait for our next family wagon, an Expedition.

I cannot bring myself to sell the car. It's my only nice ride and it still purrrs....

I appreciate the advice from all the posters. I will either replace with OEM or get Arc8's per rovert604's suggestion.

The repair shop wouldn't give me a 100% guarantee that welding the near-invisible crack would solve it. He was guessing where it was. This has been frustrating...and i know there are a lot worse things that can happen. Limp mode in the middle of afternoon Seattle traffic was not fun.

I’d replace the wheel. My friend had a very tiny hairline crack develop in his OEM wheel. The dialog between many people concluded that welding a wheel and causing more heat damage/weakness from the welding would eventually give way in the long run and could run into something potentially more damaging than saving the wheel. My friend’s tire just blew out on a windy canyon road with no sign of it. He had to limp the vehicle over a mile to get to a safe place without being rear ended with no air in that tire. That totaled the rubber and the rest of the wheel to get to a safe area as it was a one lane highway with a cliff on one side and a mountain on the other.

He was able to replace the wheel from an eBay sale on a used OEM. If you cannot find a replacement just get some ARC8 and then either wait to complete the ZCP set of OEM wheel or sell off the wheels to recoup some money.

This investment in a replacement wheel will be the safest route for you, your family, and others on the road.

Have you had the same tires for those 4+ years? If so, I'd consider getting a new set of tires too. 5 year old tire rubber can get pretty sketchy. I wouldn't want my wife driving on them.

If you do need new tires, I'd say to get a set of 18" ARC8 for the better ride quality and cheaper tires. The full set of ARC8 will probably cost you about as much as one new OEM if you sell the remaining 3 wheels on here or eBay.

I can understand not wanting to let the E46 go, don't plan on ever selling mine!

Another option is to go with a reconditioned or used OEM wheel, just an example here but you could also check craigslist, eBay etc., might save a few bucks.
