I am currently looking for a set of rims for my 1990 E30 coupe. I am looking for black finish, silver wall and deep dish rims, around 16 or 17 inch size.
Any recommendations on the brands?

something like this?
Rims are Simmons FR17s. 17x7/17x8, not my car, just borrowed the pics from a member of r3vlimited.com.

Not really, I want something less bling bling looking, more simple.

You're not really going to find a wheel with a black center and silver lip out of the box, you'll probably have to custom paint them, try tirerack.com for less flashy wheels.

This is what I just put on my 87 325e.

[attachmentid=20731]

They are 16" x 7" TSW Kyalami's in "Hyper-Black" (actually like a charcoal).

Around $180 a piece from Discount Tire.

Those are nice but not exactly deep dish though.
Try tunershop.com for some dish.

ur best bet is to find someone with an e34 M5 who has bought new wheels and is looking to get some cash back from his original wheels. also try ebay.. or if u have a shitload of money go into any BMW dealer and buy the Genuine replacement part brand new....
