Here is a set of 19x8" 745il wheels with 330/30/19 tires, on Blistine Stock suspension. They fit perfect, NEVER rub at all, and ride great, obviously a little rough on the little bumps, but not bad at all. If you arn't shure about a rim this large, and a sidewall that small, dont worrie about it they ride fine, and turn heads everywhere.

Looking good, although I too am not a big fan of chrome. Pimp it your style.

Was not sure if it was you or us when these pics did not come up....nice rims except.....well I'll put it this way: WHY PEOPLE DON'T LIKE CHROME RIMS? I MEAN people like me? Serious Why? pimping? What's wrong with chrome? I don't have an answer.....in fact chrome is way much easier to clean (brake dust etc)...

Tacroteau -

I like it! That's Orient Blue isn't it? Anyway, I think the chrome on the rims works really well with your chrome window trim.

However, it is now REALLY apparent that you need to ditch the amber and go with clear on your side markers and F&R turn signals. I think with the chrome rims and the color of your car and the rest of the trim, going clear would be a solid appearance upgrade.

PS - I've thought about getting my 32's chromed. I may be wrong, but my perception is that chrome plating would hold up better than an argent silver-painted surface as I have now. I'll probably never do it, but sometimes I wonder.... :wink

Chrome wheels vs. stock silver.....then.....Honda vs. Ferrari......Before we go down this road I'll clarify:

Unlike Tacroteau/EricS I do NOT like chrome on my wheels...In fact I don't like chrome anywhere.....of course this is my own personal preference, my taste does not have a soft spot for chrome.....forget about ferrari vs. Honda decision...my decision in clear NO chrome...so my question was/is why we do NOT like chrome on our wheels and why we associate it with pimping.....Is it a cultural byproduct/ issue?

Props,

it does look really clean. Sort of looks like a 7er from the side now.... I like boths tyles of rims, but you cant relate a ferrari and a honda to chrome rims and racing rims just a different style mabey like bmw and mercedes.

Bill -

Let me clarify - it's not that I am not a big fan of chrome, I am more just a fan of what looks good. And to me, what looks good may or may not include chrome, depending on the rest of the car. Some of that is tinged with sentiment, as I used to have a beautiful blue (v/similar color to my 540) 1972 Corvette convertible with a white top, and man, those chrome bumpers looked great on that car (1972 was the final year for the chrome front bumper on Corvettes).

You'll notice I don't have chrome on my 540, and altho I mentioned it as possible for the wheels, I am only half serious as there's no other chrome anywhere on the car, so I do now know if it would look right. On Tacroteau's car, however, I think his window trim works well with the rims. It might not be my choice if I had his car, but having seen it in the photo, I think it works OK, unless one has an aversion to chrome...

Sorry Bill I thought you said you liked chrome and what was wrong with us for not liking it. And I thought you said all +'s and one of them being that you liked them for being easier to clean. Misread, i was exhausted...

I dont know about everyone here, but I dont just drive a BMW because it drives so nice, I like to stick out a little. Chrome definatly turns heads, i dont feel like you hafta be getto to rock em'. In my opinion, nothing looks better then a car on chrome rims coming around a slow corner, in the sun gleaming. Its just a matter of style. The 5 series being a larger vehical, I dont believe that a sharply offset gunmetal, or silver rim looks right on the car. On a 3 series I think you can get away with it.
