Hey guys, Two days ago I bought an Alpine white '94 325is with 100,000 miles for $6200 and they threw in an extra set of Breyton Magic 18's with Pirelli tires for free. Are these wheels worth keeping? Is Breyton a good brand and worth putting on my new car or should I just sell them off? What are the advantages/disadvantages of running such a big wheel? What would you guys do? thanks.
I don't have them, but Tire Rack sells them. And they are not known for selling junk.They aren't cheap (about $400 each new). I'm sure someone here on the forum has them and could tell you more. Weight would be the only thing negative about them, in my mind.

breyton makes some good wheels. Nothing to write home about, but good. If you like them, then good. They're not lightweight, but most good looking rims aren't.
I got Breyton's and I can feel the difference everytime I shift from the winter snow tires with stock 16's. They are quite heavy. I would have chosen a different wheel but I got it for a low price a few years back. A big factor might be its because I went plus 2 on the size.
im not sure yet, i haven't mounted the wheels on the car yet since i just bought the car and drove straight back to school. ill probably put them on when I get out of school in a week or so and check out the ride and handling. i bought the car with some keyed paint on one side and on the hood, plus my AC needs a recharge..so if these wheels aren't too special or anything I was thinking of selling them and paying for that stuff. decisions..
Breyton makes a great wheel. One of the few companies that prduce an actual Round wheel. Free is always a very good price. I had a set of Breytons on my 6 ser. They used to be a very expensive wheel. My set of 18x8.5's were 500 a wheel. I would keep them.
