description of the rims has this on it...

Description : Front (E90 w/ run-flat)

Does this mean it includes the runflat tires?

I just sent them an email asking them what "w/runflats" means under their E90 rim section.

it probably means,

the wheels are designed for use with runflats, or you're supposed to buy runflats for these

at those prices there's no possible way tires are included if that's what you're asking about

Excellent find Voltron; I have been searching for a cheaper solution to buying 162s for my E90. I am awaiting the reply from Lkw15 on his order. I will more than likely order from them...

Well I took the 162's I bought from bmwwheels.com and had them mounted on Bridgestone, non-runflats yesterday morning...and boy, the car really looks MUCH better. Much more aggressive stance and just an all around better look.

Also, the ride of the non-runflats is excellent too, and I really can't feel much of a difference between these tires and the all seasons that came standard with the car. I am going to take some pictures this weekend and I'll be sure to post them ASAP.

lkw15,
You don't have the sport package, correct? Can you take some photos of the car from the side profile? I'd like to see how those rims look without the sport suspension.

lkw15,

Do you mind telling me how much it cost you for wheels and tires?

Just wondering if you have to buy them staggered? Does it matter if I buy a set of 18 x 8?

That's what I would like to know also... I would prefer not to go staggered with the wheels if it's actually possible.

the wheels were $1360. The tires are 225/40 R18 for the front, and 255/35 R18 for the rear. I got Bridgestone tires from Tirerack, that were about $300 for the year and $280 for the front...
