'01 530i is an unknown quantity at this point
(Thread Starter)
I am looking for some new rims, what should I get. What size??? I want at least 18" rims, should I go bigger? what is the ride difference?? What kind and style should I get. I went to tire rack and found the BBS RA. What do you think? I am affraid of ordering and then not liking my choice, does anyone have any picks of these rims with a 01' E39? Give me your opinions...

thanks for the input, the HM2 seems to be popular as you see them quite often. I like something a little different like the mille miglia F20 or the BBS RA or a couple of others that I can't rember. I would like to spend no more then $2400. choices choices. The problem is that I need tires bad, I had to put on the spare today as I was driving on metal. NOT GOOD!!!

Any one else have opinions with pics, I would love to see or hear your opinion.

thanks

Yes the genuine M5 wheels look stunning........but the price of new ones will stun you even further ! mrogers told me to try the classified.
good luck.

Ah, silverlea, I'm sorry if I wasn't clear about that...I simply meant that if you posted that you wanted M5 rims in the classifieds forum rather than in the 5-series discussion forum, you'd probably get better response.

Your above post has already induced someone to PM me thinking I'm some sort of wheel expert...I know nothing!!!

But good luck to all of you in search of the right wheels for your E39....and PLEASE post pics when you get your new ones on! I'm going to be replacing mine one day too, and some shots of all these rims actually ON cars would be nice!

Anyone who ever buys used cars online, anyone even THINKING of starting a &quot;Is this deal too good to be true?&quot; thread, anyone who wants to be more educated about protecting themselves must <a href='http://www.carbuyingtips.com/fraud.htm' target='_blank'>read this</a>.
