Style 166 M5 rims

Any advice on the best place to buy the Style 166 rims to install on my 550i? Should I just go to the dealership? How much are they willing to negotiate on items like this?

I just bought some Pilot Sports for my G35 from Tirerack.com and after duty/brokerage and install, saved about 40% compared with getting it done locally.

Email Vaheh at parts@crevierbmw.com or Garry at gromani@bmwofnewport.com. From Vaheh, the rims will be ~$1600 plus ~$200 for shipping, I think. With Garry the price is ~$1590 and that includes shipping, again I think.

All you will find is replicas. If the OP is okay with that then it's all good. And if you happen to find OEM 166 rims, they will be more expensive than either Vaheh or Garry. Guaranteed.

The best the OP can hope for is that his local dealership might price match Vaheh or Garry.

I'd would never buy rim on eBay. I'd rather spend another few hundred bucks for getting the real OEM rims. For E60, there is no other rim can beat OEM 166 Style, IMO.

Thanks for the advice. Definitely I think the Style 166 rims look the best! I guess I will give my dealership a try.
