I have a 2011 550i sport with the optional 19" rims but i feel they are a tad boring. Whats a good after-market rim that wont kill my pockets and you guys have used. TPMS is important to me as well as ride. Looking for a set of staggered 20"s.

I ordered 20" forgestar F14's in brushed titanium 20x9 in the front 20x10.5 in the rear. They are cheap and relatively light for rims that size. They are also made to order so the fit is perfect. They are probably a bit too sporty for most but that's what I was looking for. Here is a thread with pictures of a 535 with the same rims but black on black which I don't like. Still it will give you an idea about the rims.

Your car looks fantastic. Would be nice if you could get blackout roundel centercaps too.

Anthony yes the tpms will still work and everything fits perfect no spacers or anything like that. Batman thanks but that's not my car it's just a car like mine with the same rims I'm gonna put on and the same springs. My car is carbon black and the rims I'm gonna get are brushed titanium not the black ones in the thread.

I've seen some bayern rims and their good too. They are a little more luxury than sport so that's why there not for me but still they are good and I've seen many tsw rims and the quality has always been good. Actually the first ones I wanted are the tsw nurburgrings but they are out of stock for the foreseeable future.

I heard Giovanna is making some good solid affordable wheels and they fit. I may wait until spring to avoid all the salt
