I actually like the Boroque's initially with the black face. but ive seen too many dodge chargers with similar style rims, and other cars as well. the multi's gave it a classic bmw look, while yet modern and sporty. if that makes sense. also they resemble the alpina wheels, and i would love to have my hands on brand new B7, but ill settle for what i have in these. Stay thirsty my friends!!

Looking good! Love my Beyerns. The only complaint I have is that I wish the rear lips were deeper. Rides really well and easy to maintain. Do you have Akebono pads? I would recommend those just cause those Beyern Multi looks like it would take time detailing with all those spokes.

Yea, I washed and dried them yesterday, I needed a comfy seat for each wheel..hehe
I am considering the Akebono pads when the time comes.

Thanks for your comment and suggestion. Love the look of your wheels as well.

Btw the wheel shop was able to get the BMW center caps... I noticed your wheels doesn't have them. Let me know if you're interest in getting them

I was thinking about getting the caps. Just haven't decided on the color combination yet. With the Akebono pads I could go monthes without cleaning my wheels and it doesn't get brake dust as the OEM's produce in a day.

We get a TON of inquiries for the Beyern line up, but one that I hear personally myself a lot would be the Baroque wheels. Boy they look great!


Beyern Baroque Wheels for BMW 19''-22''

Very strong wheels indeed, with a 3 piece design too. Hopefully that helps to those who were curious about them, feel free to ask any questions about the set, I'll be here to answer your questions!

What does a set of 22" staggered no tires go for?

Depends on the color you pick. Prices per wheel for either the Silver, or Black finish would be $759.95. The chrome option would bump up price to $897.95 per wheel.

Thanks, the tire shop is recommending Lexani tires and based on some other threads that is not a popular choice. How is the noise level and smoothness of the ride with the Toyo?

IMO stay away from Lexani tires. TOYO are quieter and better ride. Lexani tires are very noisy, had two sets changed under warranty because the road noise was so bad. Eventually, I upgraded to TOYO.
