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.
i just bought these for my 97 528i in 18x8 and 18x9 rear from discount tire, they are in your price range and look good in pics although im picking them up tomorrow so i dont know exactly how they look on the car or have pics for you, i can keep you posted with some pics though
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!
