New wheels on!

Finally replaced my 17" stock wheels for the 19" style 230, looks like I need to get painted reflectors next.

I agree. Nice! Actually those are my favorite OE rims but I think they dont look as good on a e90 as they look on e92. I was on the market for those but for my e90 the 189s are still the best option for me after having 162's.

Thanks guys! Would it look better to leave the window trim as is with this stock wheel colour? Or to vinyl it gloss black regardless? Also how would these wheels look powdercoated in like gunmetal or gloss black?

Love those style 230 wheels, one of the best Orem wheels. I would like to get some for my e90, replace the 162 style.

Not great pics, but this should give you an idea of how gloss black window trim would look, as well as smoked side markers, painted reflectors, black exhaust tips, LCI tails, etc. I think I had spacers installed on the second pic for a little poke. Personally, I love anthracite/titanium colored wheels on black cars (e.g. Neema's whip), but for some reason I've never been a fan of changing the color of OEM wheels.

Car looks good. I'd definately go 12mm front and 18mm rear spacers. Here is a pic of my car(left side) with 10mm front and 18mm rear on sport suspension.

Wish I could do that. On sport suspension with OE size Michelin PSS (255/30), I couldn't go more than 10mm spacers in the rear without rubbing badly on bumps.

these are by far the best oem rims, i honestly think it looks better than my M3's 220M rims (of course 359M rims r at the top lol).
i personally love putting oem wheels on the car, aftermarket rims are great by after a while it looks cheap. OEM rims never go old, it nevr goes wrong

nice job on getting the 230's, they're the best OEM wheel IMO and they tooooooootally changed the whole entire look of your E92, thanks for sharing and please get color-matched reflectors ASAP!

btw +1 on the spacers
