They are the new M-5 style replica wheels. I purchased them through http://dtmautowerkes.com/

they are not on the website but you can call and he will know what wheel you are asking about.
I paid 1100.00 US, that is shipping included.

Tires not included in that price.
They were another $950.00.
I wanted the toyo t1-r's but I was told the 265/30/R19 in that brand are scarce these days(a month delay for arrival) so I went with the Nitto NT-555's.

It's such a shame all the north american models have those aweful orange front indicators. It really spoils the look of the car

But I still like those rims :rocks:

To all,
I was told the offsets when I purchased but all I wanted to know was if they would fit. I will find out front and rear offsets from wheel distributor tomorrow.

No it does not have the sport package. At the time I bought I would have had to wait 2 weeks for dealer to dealer trade to get the options with a particular color I wanted and I had sold my Yukon so I didn't want to walk for 2 or more weeks untill my car arrived.

I just wish I had the damn xenon with halos. I REALLY wanted those. :rocks:

so you car has stock non-sp suspension? you havent done any other suspension upgrades?

wow...i thought 19" on a non-sp would have too big of a gap, but your car looks perfect...i need to reconsider the sp for my e90 now, the only reason i was going to get it was so that it would compliment my 19" upgrades...

I cleaned it up a bit today. Took a couple more pics tonight. Hope to get some good day shots tomorrow afternoon when weather clears up.
Few different angles in case someone might want to see.
I took a top view pic of back tire also to show how perfect the spacing is. It is exactly flush with fender.
