Rims question
 
Hey everybody! I have a quick question on rims. So I know as far as good quality "classy" rims go, if I was to move away from OEM rims I would go with Vossen rims. I like the styles and everything and I see a lot of members on here have them. Has anyone had any good/bad experiences with Beyern rims? I like most of their styles and they seem reasonably priced compared to Vossen. Any information on these rims would be great! Thanks!:)

I have the Beyern Multi in Silver and love 'em.

Those are the exact rims I really wanted!!! I just don't know if I want the 20" or 22" and if I want all chrome or brushed aluminum. Do they ride really smooth?

So do I!:thumbup:

The Beyern wheels are excellent cast, one piece, hub centric wheels at a good price. They have great fitament, and are one of the only one piece wheels available in a 22x11. My favorites are the Mesh and Multi.

Db750 11-16-2012 06:43 PM

Get the brushed! Chrome is not a good look in most wheels.

Thats good info thanks!:thumbup: can you swap the beyern emblem out for the bmw emblem? Do you think that would look dumb? I'm not trying to claim they are something they are not.

Db750 11-16-2012 06:46 PM

Yes the OEM center cap is a direct fit. I would def swap them out.

Db750 11-16-2012 06:46 PM

The Multi is going to look awesome on your car!! Order them now!

Yeah I was thinking the brushed would look better.

VA BOI 750i 11-16-2012 06:49 PM

It's looking like I might have to! Lol What do you think, 20" or 22"?

Db750 11-16-2012 07:00 PM

The 20's will look like shlt so def 22.

20 with a lip is just too small for this car. Only 20's I like are the OEM 149's and quarterto8's old MRR's

Your car us going to look amazing. I am glad you have the sport package with black trim. I think with white its going to look really good, and the ride height is already right.

Thanks for the support man you've been a great help! When I get them (and I will) I will make sure to post pics and shout you out! One more thing though, what does staggered rims mean and what are the tire sizes I should have on the front and back? Would Beyern already have all that figured out when I tell them my make and model or do I need to specifically give them the info? Thanks.

Lol I was saying the same thing! :D Good to know that they ride smooth. I want a smooth ride and also be able to whip her around and punch it when I want to get a little crazy! My wife gets on me all the time when I do! I tell her I swear I don't mean to and that the car just wants to! :rofl:n

First_745Li 11-16-2012 07:22 PM

You would hv to specify staggered or not. Staggered are wider in the back, I'm running the following sizes
265/30/22 front
295/25/22 rear

Lol.. I know what you mean.. Get some good tires, tires are where you'll get the smooth ride and protection for your rims. I have TOYO Proxes tires.

Ok cool. I'm defnitley going to keep these specs. Did you have to get coilovers and all that other stuff everybody talks about?
