Help me find good looking wheels!

Ok,

So I am REALLY not digging this entire mesh, concavity, VMR nonsense. Those type of wheels make me feel sick in my stomach. I am VERY partial to old school wheels with big lip but its almost impossible to find anything decent with E90 offsets and sizes.

So, here I am asking for your help in my attempts to find a decent looking "old school" wheels for my E90. Here are some requirements:

1. Single piece wheels (for cost reasons)
2. 5 or 7 spokes. I can deal with 9 spokes, but not more.
3. No fake wheel bolts. Must be as clean of a design as possible!

Here are some of my all time favorites:

Borbet Type A:


Kersher Futura:



Any suggestions?

I am the same way, I don't want to fit the "norm" granted when I got my wheels DPE S7s there was one car that had them in graphite and a bigger size. I went with a different color and size all together so that was ok.

While I may agree that this is true to some of them, here is what tirerack used to sell for our cars and I can't find anymore:

Breyton Vision II


Breyton wheels are made by BBS specifically for BMWs. Unfortunately, this particular model was discontinued for our cars...

Point taken! Hence, I am looking for help. Perhaps there are other brands that make wheels that meet my requirements above and yet fit our cars.

The TSW Holstens and the Breyton Visions DO indeed fit our cars. I just can't find them anywhere!

Those aren't too bad. I just like the European look better than the ones in your first post. Like I said...to each their own. It's what you like not me or anyone else.

Check the ADV.1 cast forged line, I think 5 spoke, it's concave though.. I love those wheels, no lip. But I bet activeautowerke can give you financing if u desire.

Otherwise I think they go for about 600 a rim give or take.

Beyern makes a new 5-spoke design for e9x called "Rapp"...available in chrome, black, or bright silver. TireRack, Discount Tire, and other wheel retailers carry them.

Ja ja ja! That's right, you really need hubcaps, not wheels.
