Style 172 on my e90

I bought these wheels about 8 month ago and finally got around to put them on. I have only seen them on a couple of e9x cars. They are the first major exterior modification I have done to my car since I bought it about a year ago.

The wheels came off an e60 550i Msport. The original owner sold them because the dealer ruined the new gunmetal finish he had done to them and had the dealer buy him a new set. Damage doesnt bother me too much as I will be dipping them in the near future.

Specs are 245/35/19 on 8.5x19 ET 18 for the front, and 265/30/19 on 9.5x19 ET 32 with 12mm spacers on the rear.

From other sites and other threads, the reviews are pretty mixed. Let me know what you think.

Wheels look nice . I don't think you should dip them. the color looks good maybe powdercoat them if you dint want the color

although i've always liked these wheels on the E60 M-Sport, the design that it has looks great and the GM finish is just sick!
thanks for sharing the pics and IMO you should definitely get a set of coils now

Surprisingly enough, they were on a local forum for a year and nobody bought them. He was to the point of just giving them away. Ended up paying half of his asking price.

How much did you pay for them and are they OEM?

its pretty aggressive without lowering it. you need to tuck the tire under the fender some for it to look right. maybe stretch the tires with 225/255 and itll look better

Again, the reviews are very mixed here too. I would like to lower it, but the offset is so low on the front that I don't think it will be possible.
