Want to get these wheels, haggled the price down to 1800:

As an example how they look on a f01:

(he's got them custom painted to his car's color but I actually don't like that. Other than that though, it's quite appealing)

Anyway, I think they look awesome, especially with my car's color they should be badass. But I'd like a few opinions first, you guys know your wheels !

personally not my style. i like a bit more of a lip, if the wheel has a lip at all. but i think they look good! fits well with the bimmer look. not too flashy, but still draws attention

Not a bad price for BBS! And it's something that not many others have. Although I would prefer something concave, this design might fit the F01/F02 well.

Anyone good at photoshopping and want to help the OP out? :D

If I was you I would go with VIP Modulars.

You have to realize we don't get that much variety in quality forged wheels over here. The choice is pretty limited, unless you wanna spend a fortune and order some awesome wheels from the States.

Concave is also my first choice, however at the moment there aren't any suitable options. Well, there's one set of good old 128's actually, I could consider that as well, on a f01..

The 128's actually don't look too bad!

I think you would need some spacers to make it work on an F01/F02 though

I think its a nice wheel, just not great looking on the 750.

Wheels and tires for $1800? That's hard to beat. They might not be my first choice, but I do like them.

Most likely going for these babies. Never had 22" wheels. Think ride comfort going to suck bad, but damn are they beautiful :D And resale value on Breytons is one of the best, in case I want to get other wheels later on.

I definitely like these better than the first wheel you posted. These look nice.
