: FS BMW E39 18" Style 42 Rims with Pirelli Snow Tires

It's time to plan for this winter season!!

I am selling my set of 18" Style 42 replicas with BMW center caps. The rims are mounted with 225/40-18 Pirelli 240 SnowSports. They will fit directly on any E39 5 series model (525i, 528i, 530i, 540i or M5). They should also fit on any E34 with hub-centric rings. They are painted gun metal which greatly helps hide the dirt that is difficult to clean during the winter.

I used these for the last two winter seasons and there are approximately 10,000 miles on all the tires except one that only has about 5,000 miles on it. There is plenty of tread life left on the tires. One tire was replaced because at the end of the first season I hit a pothole at night causing a bulge in the tire. The rim has a tiny bend too, but honestly it is only noticeable if it is pointed out. I have had no problems with it and rode all last season with the new tire on that rim.

The gun metal paint looks good, although each rim has random chips here and there. No big deal for a winter set and unnoticeable at 10ft. You can always remove the paint and go back to an alloy color if you wish or repaint them in whatever you like.

Overall these are a great set of winter wheels and tires and have served me well. Tires alone are $214 each new. The reason I am selling them is that I found a set of Style 81 rims which I always wanted.
I am asking $750.00 shipped. I am not holding them, first person to paypal me, gets them.
