Keep 230's or change for 313 reps?

Evening chaps,

I have a set of 230's sitting in my garage waiting for some tyres. However, I'm seeing more and more cars with 313's and they're definitely growing on me, a lot.

I won't be paying out 1k+ for OEM ones, but quite fancy some reps.. anyone advise on the quality of the reps?

Does anyone have any pictures of a silver e92 SE with 313's?

Cheers,
Steve

230s are the best wheel on the SE.

313s don't look right on the SE. The chiseled lines suit the more aggressive M sport kit better.

Too many people are going for 313s. Getting too common.

I think Kerr's spot on there tbh. 230 are 5 spoke twist right?

Someone very local to me has got a 335 with those on and making me jealous.

I think if you're going to go for something else go for something totally different not a rep of another BM wheel!

Have you looked on BMautosport's website they have some really nice wheels....

However, if you do keep the 230's I've got some tyres for you!

Thanks for the replies guys. I'm still not sure what to do, but will give it a few months and do some more research on the 313 reps.

Cheers

IT IS VERY HARD to chose a colour with Silver cars.. the 313s give an excellent contrast to a darker colour car and may not give that look with silver ones, although in saying that, there is one chap who's put up pics of his silver m sport with 313s that do look pretty smart!

I personally won't do it but each to their own. Between 313s and 230s, for me.... the 230s win everytime esp on SE. On a darker car / m sport, the 313's will.

Someone above has said just what I was thinking; if you are goingt o change, don't change for BMW reps, u gotta go brave!

230s really do look great on SE models so I would keep them, they have a tendency to look even bigger than the 19" that they are and are exceptionally easy to clean.

Not read all posts but 230's are stunning. I've never seen a decent 313 rep yet. Get real 313's if you want 313's

Sounds like an oxymoron.
