BMW Wheel/Pirelli deal. What does the collective say?

I'm at the dealer getting an oil change and saw this. I was considering powdercoating the factory wheels and ditching the Cinturatos for something else but this 19" staggered setup looks pretty good, especially for $2K. The P Zeros are run flat... I'm thinking I could keep the stock set for winter driving. I'm not crazy about the red trim but I could live with it.

Any smart guys willing to chime in, I'd love to hear it.

Thanks,

I'd pass, don't really like these wheels. You can get some VMR's or Velgen wheels with tires around the same price

if you like the wheel, that's a no brainer. OEM quality wheels. Can't go wrong at that price. I would jump on that if they have the silver finish.

BTW, those are 20s and the sidewall is really thin. Hope you lower you car..the wheel gap will be larger than stock OEM.

I have these wheels and love them! The handling really tightens up also compared to a vehicle with 18's. The cost of the rear tires is high though, I need to buy some now.

They are indeed 20's. But the size of the wheel should not increase the wheel gap, as properly sized wheel/tires (and these should be good) doesn't change the overall diameter of the set.

Great price.

I'm just not a fan. If they work for you, do it.

Probably best off. Just get a set of 19 inch Apex.
