I have 161s and I think they look great. They are, however, not "light" alloys as the brochure claims. They are quite heavy, esp with performance tires.

I'm not sure I'd mess with success, but in your owners manual it should have recommended pressures for both an unloaded and a loaded car.

BMW doesn't use PAX. The tires are supported entirely by the sidewall if you lose air pressure.
