I have been looking for wheels for quite some time for my 94 325is, now that I found the summer tires I want I am gonna get the wheels within the week.

I have narrowed it down to 2 choices.

1: From FM Replicas from germany
[attachmentid=18870]

These are a replica of a M wheel for the 5 series, and would come with all the center caps and M stickers.
Price: $650 for set shipped

2: My dad has a set of MK Motorsport wheels that currently have his snow tires on them. These are just like these wheels in the pic but without that rediculous lip.
[attachmentid=18871]

These wheels I do not think I could use center caps on unless it was just a sticker type. The catch with these is I have to find him new wheels for his snows if I want these.
Price: ? they actually sell new for like $500 a wheel.


Nothing about Quality. Which style do you guys like better? I like having the BMW logo on my wheels and was not even considering my dads but I saw them the other day on his white M3 and they look real good.

I like the ones on your dads car, rocking no center caps is hott in my opinion.

i like the ones on the m3 better. i dont think those 5 series rims would look all that good on a 3. maybe some pics of them on a 3 would change my opinion.
