most wheels right now is either China or Taiwan made.
I order Avant-Garde wheels from these guys:
http://www.pyspeed.com/BMW-E60-Wheels-s/287.htm

You can go to modbargain, EAS etc, but for more service go to Tirerack, at the end you got what you pay for.

Right now, the most good wheels are low-pressure casting instead of gravity-flow casting (OK forge is the best but cost 4x as much at least). The avant-garde wheel I got are low-pressure cast 19" and survive a few pot-hole tortures. Thanks for gov't budget cut thus putting road maintenance lowest priority all >19" wheel may extinct soon

Just remember to get TPMS set also for best deal buy them with tires installed (most online seller forgo the mounting/balancing fees).

Thanks for the info, very enlighting, I have the thick 5 spoke 17 inch factory wheels, I don't what the aftermarket look, I rather have oem but budget is tight.
I saw the split spoke that come with the new 5 series GT and they are awesome! but I would have to sell one of my kids to get those I'm sure....

I ordered those wheels from Umnitza a few years back. No problems. Paid similar price.

dakest - the offset on the wheels you linked isn't for the E60. You'll want something closer to an ET20 or you'll need to run large spacers. But if that's the wheel design you love, I have it available from Alzor in an 18x8 ET35 (LINK) , I'd run a 20mm spacer (LINK) on these wheel as well to push them out just a little further than the factory wheels for a nice aggressive look.

I have a few other options which would be proper fitment (no spacers needed) that you might like (LINK)

Yeah, I didn't want spacers so I got the correct offset.

my e60 has a 20mm offset. The link takes you to 38mm offset which is a 3 series. Just make sure you get the right offset.
