Those wheels are nice with the white color of your car. I'd say refurb it and keep it if you want a stock oem look. If you want a larger wheel and better stance, then M-pars are also nice. Just depends on your taste.

Looks like a nice E39. Next time, get the whole car in the picture.

Don't feel bad my 32's need a refurb too. I may go ahead and strip them and Plasti-dip for the time being though.

I love my M pars, I have to get them refurberd soon because some A-hole decides to drive the wrong way down a one way street and didn't slow down or move over so I was forced to the curb. Luckily it was a rounded curb
