Chrome Rims - Other's Opinion??

First off i know that buying off e-bay for anything on your BMW is probalby a bad idea, but i couldnt help ask at least. I found these rims on e-bay, and yes they are cheep, but i also think that they're quite nice looking. I'm wondering if i could get some optinions on them as to whether they are a decent idea or a complete waste of time.

Also not liking the look - I am not a fan of chrome but I do not like the look of the wheel design as well.

that is a chrome ACS type IV replica.

The real ACS, silver (not chrome) ones, are probably the hottest rim you can get for the 3.
