Thomas B of Santa Ana popped by a few days ago to pick up a set of ESM-007 Wheels for BMW he ordered from the Modification Experts. Thomas like many enthusiasts with aging vehicles wanted to something to give his blue E46 a fresh new look – and the style of the ESM-007 is an excellent compliment to the car and is a great match for the design language of the front bumper cover.
Modification Expert Kirk spec’d out the wheels for E46 for Thomas in a staggered configuration, recommending ESM-007 wheels in 18×8.5 out front and 18×9.5 out back with a set of Hub Centric rings to keep everything lined up as it should be. The Wheel specs are listed below.

Looking at the car sitting on a clean fresh set of wheels, it’s hard to tell that the E46 platform is almost a decade old, looking every bit as modern as it did new.
The contrast values of the wheels really make them stand out. ESM Wheels are a great way to fit your car with a stylish set of wheels at a pricepoint that won’t break the bank. In a few weeks, Thomas will be back at ModBargains to have his E46 fitted with a set of ST Suspensions Coilovers for E46 to give the car a low profile to suit the new wheels – and as with any older car, replacing the shocks is a great idea – and probably necessary, making it a stellar way to kill two birds with one stone. Out here in SoCal, we never see salt and seldom see rain, so ST Suspensions Coilovers are a great choice.We’re really excited to see what this car looks like sitting on coilovers, and of course, you can expect to see photos right here on the ModBargains blog.
