Chrome = escalade = baller
162= STOCK = not very baller
chrome+bmw = bad combo

chrome and 162 and bmw should not go togather.......but as long as u are happy with it its all good. Doubt a lot of people gonna like it though....

You're not gonna have many fans of chrome on this forum. Personally, I think it only belongs on a car that's meant to attract attention, i.e. Rollys Royce. But it's your car so do what you like.

Like most wheels they probably look better in person. I like chrome wheels, But i like gunmetal and hyper silver also, which is why my stockies are going to be powdercoated gunmetal, so i can switch from flashy to under the radar in just a swap of wheels. All that truly matters is if you like your car.

Not a big fan of chrome wheels on cars, but they certainly look much better than black wheels. If you like em, that's all that counts.

While I hate the chrome - still looks a lot better than all the all black or black with chrome lip wheels you see so much on here.. all just fads that look silly after 3-4 years past.

I think it's crazy to say but compared to all of the drug-dealer chrome wheels you see around here those chromed 162s actually look good. To each his own, I personally think it actually looks good. They definitely look a lot classier than your typical huge 20" "DUBS dawg"

to each his own - if thats your style and you like them (and look back over your shoulder as you walk away to get a second glance after youve parked)- good for you - if all of us here had the same taste (chrome, black, white, hyper black, hyper silver, 18's 19's, bbs, av, etc..wheels) I suppose things would be a bit boring and we would all be stepford wife (look it up if you dont know) bmw owners -
