Those are 16's... not 17's, and they're overpriced by about $100

yeah, I don't know much about 5s, I just assumed he wasn't lying about the size and I didn't really know what a fair price was since I haven't been looking for them, but $400 did seam kinda hi since I paid that for a set of 39s with decent rubber.

The 16 inch style 5's come from the 7 series.. and are one piece...

17 inch style 5's are off the E39, and in good condition, can go for up to 1k without tires.

Good to know, I prefer fewer/ larger/ straighter spokes, so ideally I want a set of 44s for my car.

Here's something that is just funny, guy made his 318 look like an M3 with full Pimp My Ride package, then rebuilt the M42 and supercharged it. I LOLed.

$35k into a 1992 318? With a police siren under the hood (?), a playstation in the glovebox, and two TV's in the trunk? I guess those mods are the reason he's labelling it as a "335"

^ +1 Read up on run-flats. They are horrid tires...rough riding, much poorer traction than standard tires, noisy. People that get them when purchasing a new BMW generally get rid of them at their first opportunity. The problem is, there's no place for a spare in the new models.

That's a nice one. The color is different. I'm not crazy about it, but it would stand out. Price is good, too!

If that dude claims he put $10k into the body, he must have had the world most expensive body shop work on it. You could paint a car in 24k gold for $10k... And for someone who is willing to supposedly dump $10k into body work, you'd think he would care enough about appearance to at least clean the brake dust from his wheels when taking photos of his car for selling purposes. I call shenanigans, or stupidity.
