Used OEM wheels?

I hit a monster pothole last weekend in my E93 - blew out the rear tire (starting to regret running non-run-flats) and bent / cracked the front wheel.

Does anyone know where to find used BMW OEM wheels? Junkyards in northern NJ with searchable databases or reputations for having BMWs? Looking for style 157 in particular.

Any help would be much appreciated!

I did a similar thing a few years ago and bought a refinished one on ebay. Best of luck!

Car part will help you find the wheel you need. I recommend you find a good condition oem wheel vs a refinished one.

Scads of them on Craigslist. But be careful - the descriptions are awful there.

Yep... car-part.com. You just have to figure out how to match the description to your actual wheel.

They actually have a wheel picture guide that makes finding the right oem wheel really easy.

When I've gone to look, only about 40% of the wheels actually have a picture.

Why not just get new wheels...Alzor wheels are $500 shipped for a whole set at ECS tuning. Decent quality, probably weigh about the same as OEM.

Alzor style 030 and 040 kind of look like the Style 359 M3 wheels

Oh hey i think I recognize the shit wheels my 335d came with....


If thats them, OMG that crap is weaaaak... and dont buy the 19's, not enough rubber running 35s and 30s to protect them from getting gouged aaaaalll over from even minor road imperfections

18 staggered 235/40 up front 245/45 in rear might work ok though....still, somehow never get any of the road rash I used to collect all the time on those things now that I run on real BMW wheels, so maybe its just a durability thing (650i takeoffs craigslist score --- $500 w/ tires, although only the rears size fit alas ..18" style 328 i believe it was)
