Wheels

Is it possible to put the style 135 wheels from the 330i ZHP onto my 330xi, or am I just dreaming?

Yes, it's possible. You'd have a bit more wheel gap, however.

Well, I have to wait until May .... I'm eyeing the M-Retrofit Aero Kit for installation sometime around then, too!

It'll look nice except for the 4x4 wheel gap...some H&R springs should take care of that nicely

CJ, I would go with 225/40/18 (front ZHP rims) all-around. Staggered setup is not advisable on AWD systems like your Xi.

They are difficult to clean there’s no doubt. They may be heavy but they look good and can’t be much more heavy than other OEM 18”s. Your car should look pretty good with them. You are already used to the slightly higher ride height so if you like the style of the wheels you should be pretty happy. Post pics please!!!

OEM wheels can be awesome value when people sell them cheap to upgrade to aftermarket wheels.

[QUOTE=ff]This is why BMW is distancing themselves from being the maker of driving machines. Amercans want fluff, useless electronical gadgets, automatic transmissions, fancy spoilers and wheels. All at the expense of performance. At the expensive of the way it feels when you drive a car that puts you in touch with the road.

Public transit is looking better and better every day.[QUOTE=ff]

Whatever

I agree that public transportation IS looking better now that they are adding "American Fluff!" Too bad the cupholders still suck.

Nice staggered set up on that J-7583 Dart People Mover! I wonder what kind of wax they used to keep it clean? Zaino? Klasse?

But, who's the dork in the hat???

Speaking of wheels...

Does anyone know the weight of the 18x8 Style-101 composite wheels? They're dead-sexy, and I'm thinking about a set of these on my next 330...

Thanks in advance!
