Z4 3.0si New Shoes

I've had my Z4 3.0si since 2011. It's time for new shoes. Any recommendations for wheels? My 108s look nasty with all the corrosion. Thanks.

You've already got the best looking wheels for a 3.0si. I would just get them refinished. Not sure how close to Charlotte you are, but Prince Wheels would be a great place to get them done.

I liked my 108's but went with a set of 219M rims and the ride is much more improved with my Vogtland sport suspension.

Bang for buck and appearance, hard to beat the Apex Arc8 or EC7.

What’s your budget? Are you looking at OEM or aftermarket?

Not sure how aggressive you’re looking to go but I love my style 32’s. I have the newer design that features concave spokes. Some prefer original flat faced but I like the depth it gives especially on the rears.

If you’re looking for something less aggressive offset wise, I like the 197’s and 313’s. In general the E90 non-m wheels fit the n52 Z perfectly. Also can’t go wrong Apex.

Although the offsets wouldn't work AFAIK the OEM rims on this one look incredible. Similar to Apex FL-5.

I agree with the advice to get them refinished. Not cheap, but they are a great looking wheel. I have seen really awful ones (cracks missing alloy) for over $150

A bit of bias here - I am the original owner and mine came with those rims. Dealer was surprised that they were not an extra charge item.
