Chrome rims on my bmw!!

Before we start I would like to say I do not own this car anymore. With that said what are your guys thoughts on the cars chrome rims they came with the car and I always thought it looked kinda cool and never felt the need to change them I think most of the e90post community may think otherwise. I would never put anything chrome on my current car tho

Only thing chrome/polished on a BMW should be the lip on a balling three piece wheel.

haha but you can easily pull off the wheels with a drop and spacers especially on a black car. Then you can get curb feelers and a huge bumpin system!

Yeah idk why people hate on them. I see where theyre coming from and I dont like many chrome rims on bmws in general but this one is an exception some how, maybe it was because it was my car lol. I never had anyone nay say the rims most people gave me compliments on how cool they looked. They would look better on blue bmw tho.
