Which wheels???

Hey guys need your help. I have a Luxury line on order because I wanted the saddle brown leather, but I am not a big fan of those Luxury Line wheels.

I like a clean OEM look so I played around with PS and came up with the following pics on a IBM F30. Let me know which one you like best or suggest any others that you think might look good on my ride.
BTW my favs are the 230s but I was quoted $5200+taxes!!

Style 167 (M6)


Style 128


style 230


Style 366


Style 343 (M5)

Could you PS the M434 (M550d) wheels on that F30? Those should also be stunning!

Others you could consider are the M359's (only the 8,5J's 4x) or what about the 401's...

366 look great!

What do you mean you don't like the luxury line wheels?!

230's for me too, they suit the car's clean look imo. Time to put the money where your mouth is!

Thanks for the responses so far... Couple of points

The quote I received for the 230s was from an actual BMW dealer.
My max budget is ~$3500.
Might consider aftermarket if oem is too overpriced.

I haven't shopped around for the other wheels yet.
Oemconcept.com have 167 reps for a fairly reasonable price but too many people in Toronto have them on their E90s.

The 343s are sweet too. But real 343s will be a struggle to fit IMO... Would have to find reps.

Will PS some more wheels and post today...

NOVICE QUESTION! I've never changed the wheels/rims on any of my previous cars. Are buying replica wheels a "Bad" idea? I saw some on EBAY and the set of 4 are extremely affordable. Any repercussions of not going original? Thanks!

I've always been of the opinion that you should only replace the OEM setup with something equal or better (lighter/stronger/better fitment), and most cheap replicas do NOT fit that description... at least not to me. In general, eBay is probably not the best place to look if you want a quality wheel from a reputable seller. However, this forum has many great sponsors who can point you in the right direction.

Thanks for the input! I personally will not be changing my F30 Sport Line wheels but was just curious :]
