E92 on Style 162s

Whaddya think? I've rarely seen this setup on a coupe which is surprising because I think these are some of the best OEM wheels on the E90s. Wrapped in Dunlop Wintersport 3Ds, my baby is officially ready to tackle the Chicago winter. Excuse the crappy iPotato 5S shots.

What tire sizes are you running? Begs for something meaty being an 18... And I love that wheel style, nice choice for a winter setup.

i've always wanted to get four rear 162s and run a square setup. your e92 looks great with those on there! best of luck with your winter travels! i love my snow tires.

side note, is there really speed bumps in the service lane at that dealership?

Look nice on an E90, not sure about E92. And they weigh a ton. I'm told...

Thanks. I'm running 235/40 all around, I would've preferred 225s. Not supposed to beaty for winter, lol. A narrow/tall tires combo works best for snow.

Cheers dude! Yup, they have a tiny speed bump in that exit laneway.

Not sure what they weigh. Didn't feel any different than my 313s.

I have 15mm all around, didn't think the rear would look as sunken as it does. Probably need 20mm in the rear at least. Meh, I'll do it if I find a cheap set - not too bothered for max stance in winter, lol.

Nice car, and if scions rock 162's why can't e92s right? Can never go wrong with 162's love the looks!

Hmm, I've been seeing quite a few comments about the 162s being heavy so I did some searching... According to BMWStyleWheels.com, they weigh roughly 11kgs each, that's still lighter than my summer setup 313s which are 13kgs each. Damn, I had no idea I was driving on boat anchors!

Thanks guys!

I agree! I wish I had the budget right now, I really wanted them to be painted gloss black or gunmetal just to change things up a bit.
