135i convertible 17 inch wheels

Who is still running 17's on their 135i vert and should I move to 18's?

I have 17's on there now and I'm not sure I want to stick with these. I think 18 polished aluminum would look more classy.

What do you guys think?

Wow. The ones you got on now are sharp. That blue was the blue me and the wife wanted but we couldn't find one around the price range we were looking. Personally, the last pic is too much bling. If you would decide to sell the ones you have on now j would be interested.

Then again, that gold on the new ones against that blue might just be an awesome look!

I actually like the chrome ones. But I do like bmws oems for the most part. I'd trade me factories for the chrome bling on the blue beauty though.

I'm on the same boat. I'll have my 135 next week. The car only has 24k on it. I'll post some pics when I get it.

Wow. That's about 9 hours from me. So you're thinking of swapping out the rims already? Is this your first bimmer? My 128 is my first. It has nice m sport rims on it now but I like the larger chrome like what you have on there now.

Here's the pics. There is some minor pitting going on inside the rim but these would be perfect for a driver quality . I have decided to go with BMW Performance 18's and new tires. So, these wheels come with the tires too, you can see the tread thats left from the pictures. One tire is lower then the rest but plenty of life left in them.

Make an offer for the package.

Not really, its easier to ship with the tires otherwise I have to go and get boxes which is more of a cost.

I understand. Let me get with the wife and see what she thinks. We are picking the car up this week. So other than those inside the rim blemishes there are no curbing or anything like that?

Appreciate the first shot. To be honest you'll probably do better in ebay. We like them but are getting ready to drop some serious cash on getting this 128 this week. We are thinking somewhere between $50-75 each. I'm sure you could get more for them and I wouldn't knock you for that.

ID:	452850 these are the rims in there now. We like them but would love yours better. Guess price is really the deciding factor here.
