Spacers just for looks are stupid IMO. Do not like those wheels on an E90. The $ difference between 8.5" & 9.5" is next to nothing. 8.5" is fine anyway, it's just a street car.

True, difference in 8.5 - 9.5 isn't much, but as stated in one of my previous posts... i'm not a 'big baller / hater" like the guy who posted above, so the difference in a different brand that offers 9.5" - 10" wheels is doubled to almost tripled.
Besides, i was going for the murdered out look with a hint of red and i haven't seen any 'out-of-the-box' black w/ red stripe wheels i like besides these Forte's.

(truth be told, my rims only cost me $1,000 + $440 for the tires). I don't need to go performance with a 325i that only pushes 215hp...

it's not how much they cost or how much "performance" they lack - it's the ghetto design.

there - i said it.

those rims don't belong on a BMW - even a 325i making only 215hp.

they belong on a mid 90's Chevy Silverado or a 2000 Ford Taurus or a 1996 Toyota Corrola or anything else that you find in a poverty stricken area.....

Could always add the red rings to whatever wheels you wanted that didn't have them. I forget what they are called, but a company sells them in various colors. COuld also have a shop powdercoat them.

Hate to tell you this, but you could've gotten some much better wheels with that money.

LOL I think you meant CORN ROWS LOL

That being said, respect this the OPs taste man. Plus he should get points for it not being CHROME. It's his car and he shouldn't get crap for it because it's not inline with 99% of what people buy in here.

Kudos on being different.

I like the design, doesn't matter what you think...
Though you want to throw opinions out there, i have to say your choice of BBS's look really cheesy too...

...now you're not even making sense. Leave my topic, please. Come back when you have something intelligent to say instead of just trying to be funny.
