Which 18" wheels should I get?

My F31 Msport Tanzanite blue is supposed to be delivered in October and I've ordered the Msport 19" 403 wheels with it. That wheels I'll only use for the summer tires.

Hoping someone can help me with some idea about what 18" wheels for the winter tires I should get, and also where they can be ordered (preferably from EU). Max width for the winter tires is 225 and I think 18" is a good size.

Replica is OK, since I don't want to spend a fortune. The wheels look like crap after a few seasons in snow and salt anyway.

If those wheels are available in 18", they're definitely interesting...



Any ideas? Thanks.

I saw 18" versions of the above wheel on ebay for $660 in the US (delivered), price is almost too good! I know they are replicas, but $165 each delivered just seems too good. But then again Tire rack has some M3 replicas (19" M3 wheels that are available in 18" size) for only $144 each before delivery, Elbrus I08

Thanks Mako!

I'll do some search and see if I can find the first mentioned wheels in 18" then. I've bought wheels from the UK at good prices before, so maybe I'll give that a try again. The M3 replicas are nice, but I think they're a bit too similar to the 403 wheels I've ordered.
