        I had them on my 535is.

        They looked great and weighed almost nothing.

              you can't go wrong with a set of 16" rims for $200

              you should run 205/50/R16 or 225/45/R16

                You are very limited on the tires that are made in that size 225/45/16 there are not a lot compaines that make performance tires in that size. Toyo does and maybe a few others.

                Rims are ok. If I were going to get basket weaves I would get a set of Factory Evo 16's or E28 M5 rims.

                  Since your car color is already so distinguishing get a set of distinct wheels.

                  No one in the states wears RH Cups or LMs.

                      well, like Vlad said, i couldn't have gone wong with $200 set of rims that looks pretty decent.

                      i don't want the chromies on there any longer then it has to be so these rims are good to go for now... just to get the chromies off for now and looks half decent. i wish i had the luxury of waiting for E28 M5 rims (buddy has them, might play musical wheels so it might not be too late).

                      I'm thinking about running RA-1's year round... i could be crazy but what the smell....

                        i've seen that car in person... VERY Nice!!


                        if i had the $$$$ laying around, i would run Fikse's. i have Profil 13's on my 540 right now and there's just something about how Fikse makes their rims that gets me all drooling...
