Style 157 Rims / Tires / TPM Sensors

BIMMERPOST / Classifieds
Asking Price:
None
Item Interest
I am selling all 4 wheels from my BMW e92. These will fit any 3 series from '92+ including e36, e46, e90, e92. They came off my '07 328xi. Each rim/tire/TPMS sensor varies in condition, so I am selling them separately.
Note: Style 157 rims are sought after because they are among the lightest factory rims ever produced by BMW.

Here is the rundown on each wheel, and my asking price for each, excluding shipping. I figure shipping for each whee/tire will be around $30 each.

$85
WHEEL #1
Tire: 1/8" tread remaining
Runflat: No
Size: P225/40ZR/17
Brand: Cooper / Sport
Tire Pressure Monitor: Yes / OEM
TPMS Condition: Readings may not be accurate
Rim: Paint is flaking (mostly seen on 1st photo on upper right spoke, a few other places), some curb rash, mild bend. There is epoxy on the wheel; presumably from a crack. But it doesn't leak.
Despite the bend, I drove with this rim for a long time; it's not that bad. It holds air and since putting on summer wheels in March it remains pressurized. There is plenty of life remaining on this tire.

$285
WHEEL #2
The practically new tire sells for $245 alone on Tire Rack.
A used TPM sensor sells for anywhere from $50-100 on Ebay.
The rim isn't perfect, but the other items add up to $300 alone.
One way to see it is that you would be basically getting this rim for free.
Tire: 1/4" tread remaining
Runflat: Yes
Size: P225/40R/17
Brand: Bridgestone / Turanza EL42 Runflat
Tire Pressure Monitor: Yes / OEM
TPMS Condition: Good
Rim:
Brand: Factory / OEM / BMW
Condition: Some curb damage. No cracks.


$215
WHEEL #3
The tire, when new sells for $245 alone on Tire Rack. This tire has nearly 75% life remaining.
A used TPM sensor sells for anywhere from $50-100 on Ebay.
The rim isn't perfect, but the value of the other items add up to at least $225 alone. My price is LESS than that amount; before even factoring in the rim which is in pretty good shape.
One way to see it is that you would be basically getting this rim for free.
Tire: nearly 3/16" remaining
Runflat: Yes
Size: P225/40R/17
Brand: Bridgestone / Turanza EL42 Runflat
Tire Pressure Monitor: Yes / OEM
TPMS Condition: Good
Rim:
Brand: Factory / OEM / BMW
Condition: Some curb damage. No cracks or bends.


$110
WHEEL #4
Tire: at least 1/8" remaining (see photo)
Runflat: Yes
Size: P225/40R/17
Brand: Bridgestone / Turanza EL42 Runflat
Tire Pressure Monitor: Yes / OEM
TPMS Condition: Good
Rim:
Brand: Factory / OEM / BMW
Condition: Aesthetically looks pretty good from the front (only minor scrapes), but the previous owner's epoxy patch didn't hold and there's a substantial crack. Maybe it can be repaired, but I'm no expert.

GLWS!

Just as an add-on to your earlier comment for potential buyers.

Note: Style 157 rims are sought after because they are among the lightest factory rims ever produced by BMW.

There is a post I came across on this forum (sorry couldn't find it) that shows that these wheels are just under 19 lbs. a piece before adding hardware (i.e. tpms, stems, center caps, tires, ect.) This is the main reason I never upgraded my wheels just tires when I needed to replace OE tires. They are not to shabby looking either.
