I really do enjoy the look of the emblem on the BMW Wheels. Just my wheel is made by Konig. When I baught this car the rims were like this - so I couldn't really complain. But I saw on bauvauto that there are some 64.5mm emblems with an adhesive back to them (36 13 1 181 080). Is it possible for me to buy 4 of those and just stick them over the Konig wheel emblem? Do you guys think this is wrong? No clue if the 64.5mm is big/small enough or even if the adhesive back will hold for more than like 6 months. The Konig emblem pops out of the wheel.

Anyhow - here is a picture of the rim to my 92 325is

I would have bmw roundels on my wheels no matter what wheel they were. You can buy BMW center caps for your wheels at the dealer too. When I ordered my new wheels they sent me center caps without anything on them and then sent bmw roundels that i had to peel off adhesive backing and put on. I did they and they feel sturdy. The bmw dealer told me that they sell just the adhesive ones or the whole thing but the price is the same check them out. They are like $3 a piece.

Definitley do it if you like the look. Everyone does it and its not like its a bad thing. Theres a guy in this forum with bmw center caps on his SSR's, I had them on my momo's, and now I have the BMW caps on my BBS's. It's not like you are trying to hide the brand of your wheels (they are good wheels), and its not like you are trying to fake that they are stock wheels (theyre even better than stock)- If you like the look, then do it.

Also what you should try doing, instead of ordering, is pop off a single konig center cap and run it down to the dealership. There they can find the exact size of cap, or decal you need.

yeah, I almost had to do the same thing when I was trying to get winter tires on Borbet Rims. But I never got the rims, becareful if you end up having to glue them on that the glue holds. The sell roundels all sizes at the dealership or check ebay for cheaper quicker to find deals.

Also keep in mind that a BMW roundel wont make the rims OEM quality so you wont be improving resale value or nothing like that in the long run...unless those rims are really tight.

good luck
