Unfortuanitly. your best bet is this: click here

Because BMW dealershiups are more expensive it sux. But they will do a good job and do it right. If you dobnt go to a bmw dealership. Make sure the mechanic is a BMW certafied guy.

'01 530i is an unknown quantity at this point
There is a BMW dealership in phoenix, there parts department has a lot of stock rims in stock. I got a new rim from them for less then half of the price of the local dealership. They were used maybe 300 miles or so. try them out and they will ship it right to your door.
