2004 325 Ci Question ?? Rims ??

I have a 04 325 CI , it has factory 17" rims which came with the premium package. Im looking to put 19" rims on it and i was thinking of sticking with a bmw rim . Will the E46 Chrome M3 Rims fit on my car ? If not what company makes a Quality rim comparable to a factory BMW RIM , i dont want to have any vibration etc. Please help, thanks so much guys

The M3 didn't come with chrome wheels. Go to the tirerack website; it's setup so you can see the wheels on your car.


Cheers,

i would recommend the csl wheels like in the second picture above. however, i think these would be much better:

I love those and i have seen those before but im just unsure if it will screw up the ride, are those a quality rim ? Someone told me as long as the rim is hub centric it wont vibrate, im very new to this thats why im being careful, i dont mind paying a little more for a quality rim that will not bend when i go over a speed bump or vibrate when im doing 55mph
