Anyone a wheel expert?

I'm a new member and I'm having trouble finding a good deal on some black spoke wheels. I don't feel like paying $1800 for them. Any great suggestions for web sites or deals here? I have a 2001 740i. Thank you

Check the thread a bit down "my parallel replica". One of the replies said he had a set of black rims, I think he said 20"

Don't do 20. Wear and tear is bad with a rim that big. Go 19 with a phat dish on them! Get the parallel 5 spoke and powder coat them black. If you powder coat them it does not matter how old or ****ed up there hence cheaper rim!

Aren't 19" rims hard to find tires for?

Not at all. No harder than any other tire. Depends on your locale. If not many cars have that size in your area then odds are most tire shops will not stock them. Best to call around and check the price differences first.
