    I have a 2005 330ci convertible w/sport package and would like to upgrade my wheels from the stock 17" to 18" wheels. I've looked on several websites and can't seem to find an easy way to find out which BMW Style Wheels will fit my car. Any suggestions?

    Start with the Tire Rack wheel selector, select your info, and once the results are up, sort by diameter, etc.

    Consider the weight of whichever choices you narrow down to, lighter wheels allow the suspension to work better vs. heavier wheels. You'll likely find a happy medium in there somewhere between a high-priced super-low weight wheel, and some 30lb. wheel for low bucks.

    This one looks to be the least expensive of the lightest wheels (closeout sale @ $249, 18.2 lbs; one thing to consider, particularly for closeout wheels - might be worth buying 5 wheels, as if you damage one beyond repair, finding a matching replacement will be difficult, if not nearly impossible):

    This one is the lowest priced that they have 4 or more of (there are some very low priced wheels that fit, but less than a set of 4) - closeout $109, 22.9lbs. :

    Wheels like this may be easier to clean:
