Style 189 Wheels, Where can I buy?

Had another thread on BBS CH black wheels...thanks for the replies, but deciding not to go with those.

After much searching I've decided the new wheels I'd like is a set of OEM 189s for my 2008 335xi Sedan.

My problem is, where the heck can I buy a set of 4 new 189s (staggered set, 18x8" front, 18x8.5" rear)? In a couple hours of searching I cannot find a source. I'd want TPMS and the whole deal. I have the tires and will pay to have them mounted by my dealer once I get the wheels.

I plan on calling the dealer tomorrow, but I have a feeling I'll be paying an arm and a leg for them. It would be nice if I could get my hands on a set of 4 new OEMs for less than 2K.

Any help is appreciated!

Thanks,
-steve

I am in similar position, but have concern that changing OEM wheels
from 17 to 18" 189s on my E90 335xi will put me in a position that BMW can void my warranty unless they do the work. I read this on another forum, yet have not confirmed.

Also: I do like the 17" Contis on my car , but am having problems finding ANY all-season runflats for the 18" 189s. The mixed sizes between front and rear limit the choices at least on the Tirerack size to only Summer tires.
Anyone else having this problem?

honestly with so many people changing out their wheels on e90post, the marketplace on this board would be your best bet... you can find sets in perfect condition with under a week of use on them for cheap

if you absolutely want "new" though, tischer would be the best

NO, I have not, but their price looks good for the 189 RIMS.

To me, there is really no reason that you have to buy the 189s in the SPORT config of 8 inch up front and 8.5 in the back. I can more freely rotate the tires if I went with the 8" 34 offset all around.

Thanks for the link on this. If I strike out working a deal in the Marketplace for 189's used , with good rubber, I'll go this route.
