BMW OEM Rims

I recently purchased my first BMW and am looking to get larger rims for the summer. I found http://www.joycitytires.com/ through Kijiji and it seems like they have pretty good reviews here. Their homepage advertises new 18" OEM rims + tires for $1650. Does this price seem too good to be legit? Are shops other than BMW dealers actually able to sell new OEM rims?

You should search canada classified as a lot of people sell their OEM rims. One place to consider would be Simply Tire. They had a few OEM sets (used) for sale (not sure about the price)

If you will consider after market rims you can call Allen of Simply Tires and for sure he can give you a good deal.

The price is not outrageously low IMHO but you should consider what they are selling. That $1650 offer on their home page right now is for 4x 18" OEM M alloys (style not mentioned) with 4x 225/40 R18 tires. I would clarify the following before you buy:
- what is the exact style of those wheels (eg, style 193M, style 269, etc) & what are the offsets and widths for both front and rear. (A normal 18" E90 fitment would be staggered 18x8" 225/40 front and 18x8.5" 255/35 rear - it looks like they are selling you four front wheels from the banner ad)
- you probably want to spend a bit more to upgrade the tires as that General set is a cheaper non-RFT all season tire. Even if you want to ditch the RFTs, there are way better UHP summer options out there for a few hundred bucks more. (eg, Michelin PS2 or Pilot Super Sport; Conti ContiSportContact 3, etc)

+1 for SimplyTire as mentioned - I have had very good experiences with them. If you want OEM wheels you can find some deals on gently used sets here on the forums and then grab the new set of tires you want from Joy City or SimplyTire.

Thanks guys. Other than the appearance, and the fact that a square setup is easier to rotate, are there any other important differences between staggered and square for regular daily driving?

Agreed with buying used OEM on here and then buying rubber when they are worn. I bought my winter rims off a member here for a very good price, they are OEM 17" 330i wheels (forgot the model #), and are a great winter set. I have staggered 18" VMR V710 wheels for the summer.

not sure what ur budget is or where in tdot u r but if I were u and this isn't too far from u I'd get these 269's!

http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=675562

I think 269's look pretty sick and these look like they're in great condition

I think the difference is pretty minimal. U should get a little more grip with staggered. The rear tires are wider=more rubber=more grip. I doubt the difference would be huge unless ur driving hard on a track tho. I prefer staggered because it looks nicer

those were being cleared out last year @ Maranello BMW @ $2600 (full set of rims & tires)

http://www.maxbimmer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=142303


So, the seller is only taking a few hundred $ loss after having used it for 1 yr. Smart !

Lol! Can you identify a dealer selling 269s for $2600+hst now? I paid more than that plus tax. My set is with pzero RFTs. Last year's maxbimmer "clearance" deal was with Bridgestones. My rims were used for 1 month/1000km, not 1 year. Tread gauge don't lie. If $2450 isn't fair, can you tell us how much you think 1000km old 269s with RFT are worth? Thanks bobblehead for your 2 cents worth.

And mad villain thank you for the reference to my for sale tread. Much appreciated.

Sorry OP for hijacking. Best of luck finding the setup you like.

Thanks guys, still considering my options. If anyone else has other opinions keep em coming!

A friend of mine had a 135i which he returned when the lease expired, but still has a set of rims/tires that he used in the winter. Should I expect issues with these fitting on my car because of differences in the offsets?

P.S. the OEM rims people are posting in this thread look great!

Can I use any rims that came from a 335i (or 335i xDrive) without any issues? Also, how can I tell whether a rim is a replica vs. a true OEM?

Yes you can use the rims from a 335 with no issue as long as they are original BMW specs. For real rims look at the stamping on the actual rims. I'm selling a set of OEM BMW 189 with tires and those rims are made in Italy.

I just looked at the photo from your ad. Is that the sort of stamping I should expect on any OEM rims? Is there a "BMW" stamp elsewhere on the rim?

If I buy aftermarket rims, can I still use the tire pressure monitor in the car?

Thanks for answering all my noob questions, lol.

I found after searching around on these forums that style 189 rims come from the E92 and 287 from the E90. They seem to look almost the same.

The offsets on the front are 34 mm for both styles. But for the rears, style 89 is 37 mm vs. style 287 39 mm.

What is an acceptable offset (I presume there's a range) that my car (E90) can have for 18" rims? I'm interested more for the sake of when I'm looking around at aftermarket rims. For example, I was looking at the VBR VM3 at OEMConcept's website. There's 5 options for 5 X 120/72.6 (18 X 8.5 ET20, 18 X 8.5 ET40, 18 X 9.5 ET22, 18 X 9.5 ET33, 18 X 9.5 ET45). Which combinations can I order?
