They look like they'd be easy to clean, but I think they look a little too much like flower petals for my taste. Not "strong" enough... Hard to describe.

I think those are the 17" ones that come with the 2002 325i Sport. They looked good. :)

I don't care for the center cap; exposed lugs look better IMHO...

Probably a bi-atch to keep clean, but those are beautiful wheels IMO.

after seeing them on the car - they look good


how much do they add to the price of the car ?

a few hundred I would say yes - anything over 1 grand i would go with aftermarkets...........

Jon,

Well, they do look better on the car than alone in a picture, but they're still not particularly good looking wheels.

If I wanted 18"ers, I'd probably go aftermarket, along with better aftermarket tires, like S03s. I'd then sell off the 17"ers to pay for it. In point of fact, though, I like the 17" type 68, or even type 44, better then the 72.
