That side shot looks amazing. I would go for the 19" Arc-8 but I guess then I would also need camber plates ?

I imagine I can just throw zcp's on the car, but ch's will need spacers or something to work? Neither would require much negative camber?

If only the CH’s, even in R form, weren’t so heavy.

Zcp is common here in the forums just like te’s are...but rarely seen in person. I’d argue I see more CH’s on Volkswagen, standard 3series, and audis in the street.
2,410 ZCP cars were imported to the US, or roughly 40% of production for 2005/6, so you don't have to say they're common but we still will. lol

There's nothing wrong with CH being on VW's, 3 series, and Audi's (although I don't know where you see them so frequently yet not see E46 M3's..)

You did forgett to mention one other car they are seen so often on..

Such a clean and classic design that works so damn well on the E46.

I'm not a huge fan of style 67's. I'd definitely recommend Volk TE's or Apex ARC8's if you're considering going with 18s. Personally I think these two are your best options in terms of looks and performance.

BMW+BBS go together like peanut butter & jelly. LM and CH are the two most period specific wheels to the E46, so it's tough to beat.

TE, ARC8 and any RAC look best when lowering on 18's.

The lower offset 19" OG CH looks amazing on the E46 M3. Top 5 looks IMO.

Unfortunately, they do not make them any more so you will have to find them used.

Which wheels would you choose


Not going to track the car or anything, I realize the BBS are heavier.
