18" wheel suggestions

Hi guys looking for some after market wheel suggestions. Some criteria:

- has to weigh less than OEM 397's (26lbs)
- high quality, reputable brand
- looks good
- slight lean towards gun metal or black
-$3xx per wheel preferably

I have a 2013 328xi Mineral grey so not staggered set up

Thanks in advance

i'd get something like these, very light at under 19lbs. cast center with flow formed barrels for strength. you will notice a difference in acceleration, braking, overall handling.

it'd be easier if you at least give us some style preference. 5,6,7,8,9, 10, 12 spokes? twin spokes? y-spokes? U-spokes, mesh?

I just bought myself a square set of these in anthracite:

Got some Micheline Super Sport 4S tires on their way to fit on these rims, spring can't come soon enough!!!

I really like the feel of those SM-10's from Apex. Wheels that look similar to that are what I'm thinking of. I love the weight savings too.

Got them mounted on my car yesterday, what an improvement over the run flats!! I really like the anthracite finish on my Apex EC-7's.

Enkei. I got mine from Tire Rack. These are the Lusso model. Just an example of what they look like on my E46. I was able to use oem center caps and lug nuts.
