E82 / E88 1 Series (2008 - 2013)
BMWs throw back to the iconic 2002, with a renewed form and function. The smallest car in BMW's line up but still packs a punch. Available in coupe or convertible, powered by either an inline 6 in the 128 or the twin turbo rocket sled 135.

Looks okay, but it's kinda unoriginal for a "custom" wheel isn't it?

And BMW CSL, and most BBS, TSW, DPE, HRE, Iforged, you name it wheel manufacturers.

That's not to say it looks bad, more why bother doing what's already been done 1000x before?

Here's another, excuse me, the OTHER (they only have 2 offerings) insanely unique wheel from Forgestar...

Good luck guys, you're gonna need it.

There are not many wheels that fit the 1 series. The Forgestars are one of the very few that are made with offset specifically for the 1. Everybody wishes BMW had used the same offsets as on the 3. but they apparently didn't like the wide fenders it would have required.
