New Wheels Finally

So I finally decided on a wheel style. Got the run around from Lexani. I went with these. The kind if look like Alpina wheels. Obviously not. I really like them. Thoughts? Yay or nay? I haven't put my h&r springs on just yet, so it's not as flush as I want it to be. Painted my calipers red. The brand is Beyern. 22x9.5 in front with 3" lip, and 22x10.5 rear with 4" inch lip. Thinin about spacers as well. Click image for larger version

They look great! Beryen wheels were made with BMW's in mind. I give you props for not going with some cheap looking wheel and expecting us all to like it. Nice choice.


I suggest getting some BMW Roundel stickers and putting them on the centers. You can get them at the dealer for about $5 - $15 each depending on the dealer. Measure the size in mm.

Wheels look absolutely SICK! Great choice!

I will agree with Jenks: the BMW center caps would look better. I am Pretty sure the stock BMW caps will be a direct fit in beyern wheels.

Oh....your car is 100% already lowered!

Great choice man! Although I do think it would have looked better with a larger rear lip, I'm sure it's beautiful in person

I was seriously considering that, but I would have to see somebody else's before making that call, and committing to it. Maybe in future ill send em for powder coating.

Classy!

I do hope you have some Akebono Euro Ceramics though. Or...

Cleanup will be time consuming...
