I have the WORST LUCK with potholes.....didn't want to go any bigger than 17's to give myself a little room for error.

Wheels look, but I do agree with the above comment of spacing them out.

Agreed. Should've at least gone wider. 7.5" is pretty small, especially if you're going to spend money on a new set of wheels. 18" can work well even with pothole paranoia.

Not really. There are FAR worse options that many people on these forums happily run, lol.

Sorry for reviving this old thread. I am about to buy a set of these for my 1er. I was wondering if the BMW center caps fit or if they don't which ones you bought? I see you have BMW center caps there

I'm thinking about getting the Sparco Pro Corsas for my 135i since I have some bent rims... Were you able to fit BMW wheel center caps on them or are those stickers? If they are actual bmw center caps, what size did you order so that they fit? Thanks!

Edit* sorry for asking a question that had already been asked... Just trying to get someone's attention.
