Breyton Magic - Any good?

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.
-Pat

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.

No, don't worry. It's cool. I'm taking it back for us.

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.

They are some good looking wheels. If you aren't particularily concerned with weight then you should keep them.

Really? A person I know in St. Louis has them and I think they look great. Here's a pic of them on his car.




Look awesome if you ask me.

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.

Current Car- 93 325is Exhaust, Intake, side marker delete, Cross drilled/slotted rotors, other misc crap.
