Gap Filler for a M6 GC?!?

Mein Auto: '10 550i M-Sport
Winter Wheel Set-Up: '10 550i M-Sport

Looking at winter wheel set-up and I'm between BMWs and a couple options from tire rack. Does anyone know about the quality of Sport Edition A7 wheels (18")? Also, does Rial make the Salerno (or any other model) in 18"?

Thank you.

Also, how do you think the Elbrus I08 Anthracite Mach w/ice coating would look on a carbon black 5 series?

We've had many years of good feedback with both the Sport Edition A7 and Rial Salerno wheels. They are very popular choices for winter wheels on BMW's. Unfortunately, Rial does not make any 18" wheels that we can get to fit the 2010 550i, but the Elbrus I08 is a good looking wheel that is made in 18" to fit.

Thanks Gary.

I'm having difficulting finding reviews on the Elbrus I08, how does the quality of the wheel compare to OEM or Sport and Rial wheels? Have you heard of any issues with that brand compared to others you offer? Also, do I need a thin wall socket for Elbrus?

Thank you again.

We've had good of feedback on the Elbrus wheels over the past few seasons that we've sold them, with no unusual reports of problems. The I08 does not use a thin wall socket in this application.
