Replace the stock with AC Schnitzer rims, or even get the carbon fibre interior trims and AC gearshifter.
You won't regret it.

If you are spending that much money on them, the least you should do is call them by their correct name, WHEELS.

just get someones 161's, throw away the runflats, invest on some performance all seasons. and you'd be happy.
.. the risk of getting after market is that, years down the road when you bent them, they may not be in stock, while OEMs are available forever.

Get the 162's! They are the best-looking rims I have seen so far in my opinion.

BBS RGR's with the Diamond Black finish would look awesome. They're a bit spendy though.

I like Breyton Vision, but too bad they don't have 17" or 18".

An ode to Visions

It's a shame. These allegations about the quality may not be true in the aggregate, perhaps based on just a few bad experiences or even rumors, and one could choose to take the chance and hope for the best. The weight issue, however, is demonstrable and objective.

I looked high and low for a similar wheel. Price was no issue. After several months of searching, I finally had to give up. The Visions are as unique as they are (allegedly) flawed.

Yep he's right stay away from Breyton trust me get dpe, hre, iforged for lightweight there great. The problem with the e90 is that it is very futuristic and itís hard to put a rim with a lip on it just wont flow. Lips are old school thatís why the best way to go is with 20 and your better off finding something nice that will flow with the car. But dpe is making a new wheel that will match the car perfect shh....

Whats the big deal with lips on wheels? I don't see the buzz -- am I missing something? Is this like the tickle-me-elmo buzz a few years back? You know, when all the kids had one except me...I am stumped.

Personally, I think the stock E90 offerings are great -- especially the M sport spider patterns.

People have different references. However, I would place the bet 2:1 that more people in this forum prefer wheels with lips. Just do the poll. For me, I only like these two: AC Schnitzer IV and Hartge II Classic.
