new rims fitted

could not drive the car with the 15" winter wheels on any longer

it was like walking round with a crap pair of trainers on

embarrassing ops:

i know they are not 18" or 19" wheels but i think these are one of the best OEM wheels you can get for the e36

I like them VERY much.
p.s. you don't have to have 18 or 19 inch wheels to get respect.

Go take a look at my new ones in the picture forum. They'll look tight if you've got a black car.

Heck, Tochenzo pulls off black rims on a red car too, his look awesome.

I'm not a fan of the black rims on black car, but they would definitely look good on a red one.

Those look great !

Those look great! I put the same on my kids 328i but I just used 225/45-17's all the way around for ease of tire rotations and such. Did you try fitting the 245's on the front just for grins? I was wondering how much if any clearance there was between the tire and strut body with the 245's.









Not much clearance with even the 225/45-17's up front .....


I got some OEM black wheel locks on Ebay for about $25.....

Personally I wouldn't go with black wheels on that color. Like M3UOND was saying Tochenzo has them so look at his car and that should let you know whether or not you'd like it.
