    Any pics of e46 M3 Competition Wheels on a stock ZHP?

    From what I remember, you can run the e46 M3 Competition package wheels on a non-M e46. Well, you can run 4 of the fronts (19x8) square...

    I need 4 new tires and my 135 wheels refinished, so was thinking this might be an option. Trying to see if I can find a (preferably imola coupe or cabrio) running these... Also, no reps--OEM wheels only for this ZHP...

    And a decent price on Michelin Pilot Sport AS/3s too at $213/tire

    If you want some brand new OEM wheels I would suggest looking at the style 32s. Turner has the E46 version in stock. (18x8 ET47 + 18x8.5 ET50).

    Never loved those... The plan was either refinish the 135s (if they are in OK shape, or buy a new set of 135s... Then the ZSP wheel idea popped into my head..

    I donít think thereís a better looking wheel for the E46ís lines than the CSL/ZCP design. With that said, I think what really makes them pop is the difference in front and rear concavity of the staggered set. Something about 4 fronts just looks weird every time Iíve seen a car with that setup (fwiw I also think 4 rear Style 135s looks strange).

    Given the two options youíre considering, Iíd go with refinishing your Style 135s. Itíll cost less, the tires will be cheaper, itíll ride better, and imo itíll look better.
