lol imo (with extra emphasis on the imo), i think they're some of the blandest wheels bmw makes.

then again, the only stock wheels i really actually think look amazing are the ones on the facelifted 650i (with ZSP), 550i (with ZSP as well) and all the M-model wheels.

I've got 162's (Front: 18x8 ET34 225/40 R18) (Rear: 18x8.5 ET37 255/35 R18) with OEM RFTs. I love the wheels but I really want CSLs.

I think they look good on the Odyssey. Just take out the center caps and replace it with a "H"

162s most likely would look good on most smaller sedans and/or minivans.

When I was switching my 189s out of my 335 for some M3s, I aksed if I could put them on my Odyssey. I think the response I got was it won't fit.... if it did, I would have done that...

so this has to be photoshopped.....

to be honest, it's really good looking, and I almost want to get some rims on my touring now!!!

The 162's really look good on that ODY. I have the same silver van & I will start looking for a set to replace the PAX wheels.
