I like the VMR V705 in Matte Black a lot. What would be the front and rear size that would fit without creating issues later you think.

The Wheels were $900 for the set of 4 on TireRack. That is for the 18's.

Stupid question incoming...but how hard is it to change out the center caps? I take it you just used the OEM ones?

Not stupid at all. this was my first experience in buying wheels so I didn't know much.

The Enkei ones popped out easily enough so that was no big deal. I scoured the interwebs for a while trying to find someone who sold OEM center caps and not from a 20 year old 7 Series with not much luck. I also found a lot of stuff that said OEM, but looked like a decal. What looked legit seemed overpriced.

Ended up going to a local BMW performace shop called BimmerHaus right by where I work and they had four OEM caps from this generation. I got home and popped them in. Very snug fit too so I know they won't fall out or spin. Spent just under $60 which I didn't mind at all as BimmerHaus does free pre-track day inspections if you're a CCA member.

Very cool, thanks for the info. I am planning on buying those Momos I mentioned earlier for my 328 and was wondering how hard it would be to put BMW center caps on them. Doesnt seem to bad at all, just gotta find them. Thanks again.

No problem. Those are nice wheels!

If you can find a local seller of the OEM centercaps, when you get your wheels, I'd take the cap that comes with it and bring it with you, just to make sure he sizing is right. I think most manufacturers conform to a standard, but you never know. Would suck to pay $60+ on Amazon and find they don't fit.

My summers are the 19" staggered. 19x8 & 19x8.5

Winters are 18x8 squared.
