They come in 17" and 18". I currently have the 16" rims but don't like them so I am going plus one to 245/45 17's. What do y'all think? Thanks in advance. No good or bad opinions in my - o - so fire away. I am also wondering if anyone can comment on the Vendor? Thanks.

As near as I can tell, the BMW wheel does not come in a 17". I think that the offset is the same as is indicated for the BMW 18X8. HTH.

Hi Jim, yes you are correct, the BMW in that rim style usually comes in an 18." The offsets are oem I believe yes. I picked the 17's because I thought it was a happy medium between tire cost, wheel cost, rolling weight and safety. I let you all know when I get them and maybe take a pic. What I don't know is whether the brakes are upgraded when you buy the BMW with the upgraded wheels. The brakes that are on it now bite real well, almost overkill.
