What do you mean by rolling radius? Speedo?? My speedo currently on standard 16" is also not accurate as it shows slightly more than actual speed. so wont really mind as long as the speedo doesn't show lower than real speed!!

+1 for chris being a good honest seller, very helpful bloke who can be trusted to give honest advice. He'll educate you on offsets, tyres, anything you might be unsure about etc. and won't try to sell you something that's not right for your car.

If you go to the Wheels And Tyres section of this forum there is a calculator at the top which works out the rolling radius of your current setup and your new setup, along with how it will affect the speedo

Ive seen the bmautosport 359 in 19" in real life and they look spot on!

I could do with a look at the cmwheels version though as they look slightly more concave in pics?

Id go rep over oem personally. Cheaper. And its not like bm rims are bullet proof! Id rather have some proper BBs though!

Thanks for the advice Both Bmautosport and CMwheels are equally tempting. Chris said to me both of them get alloys from the same suppliers sometimes. That's why their wheels are of good quality compared to other cheaper reps in the market.

Surprisingly, today Chris texted me saying that he has one set of VMR V710 style in anthracite!!! Argh, I want those!!!

Yep, I wanted those so badly! On M3cutters it says they come from the exact same factory as the VMR's, so are pretty much exactly the same without the VMR branding. I just couldn't quite stretch that far when I was buying

Just to add, I'd strongly recommend Mark. His services are top notch and he's a really nice guy too.

I got my 19" staggered Zitos from BM Autosport and can say I can't fault the wheels or the service given.

I've bought from them and been very happy. All their wheels a refurbished by Lepsons so if there's a problem with the finish it's Lepsons to blame rather than BMAutosport.

Hi all. I thought I might just update my final choice. I ordered the alloys from Mark (BMAUtosport) and he is really a nice chap! I didn't expect the delivery would be damn fast and securely packed! Nothing to condemn at all. The alloys turned out to be awesome and doesn't look like cheap shit at all. Very happy with the service and quality of the reps alloys!

I run staggered CS Style 18" wheels with 8" front and 8.5" rears (I know 19" and 20" would look more insane but as I said I want sthg more practical and not compromising the ride quality). I have Dunlop SP9000 225/40 for fronts and Falken FK452 245/40 for rears (should have gone to 235/40 but bought wrongly so just get them fitted for now). The ride is still superb and comfy and there's enough clearance under the stock suspension so I could live with that. These are some shots of them on the car Appreciate any comment. cheers

Cheers mate currently looking forward to upgrade the front bumper. Still looking for black performance grill though! Not willing to spend 100 for them from BMW. Not sure whether should just buy aftermarket. Afraid the quality won't be good
