AFTERMARKET LIGHTER RIMS FOR 328i SPORT

The 328i Sport comes with 8JX18 / 225/45x18 as std rims.
I'm looking for some aftermarket lighter rims like BBS, OZ Racing & so forth in 8.5JX18 & I would like to retain same tyre size which is 225/45X18.
Any suggestions from you guys?
Cheers mate!

I wouldn't classify BBS CH as light rims, doesn't the 18x8.5 weight ~25lbs?
That is the same as 20" forged wheels.

If you go to http://www.tirerack.com and search for wheels for this car, you can sort the search results by weight. There are a wide variety of light wheels available and some are even reasonably priced. For track use take a look at the Enkei line (some say they are too soft and fragile for the street). They are reasonably priced and lighter than stock.

Depends on your budget but depending on the setup you go with these two brands would have lighter options:

Forged 1
Morr
Alufelgen

All depends on the wheels....Tire Rack is just offering wheels for any budget.

Does Morr get the fitment for F30, 19" or 20"?
