E46 with Style 50 wheels?
Anyone have pics of an E46 with these wheels on it? I'm thinking of upgrading my 325i from 16" to 17" wheels, was thinking of the Style 119s, but saw these in the catalog. But it's always hard to tell about a wheel until you see it on a real car from various angles.

I think those would look pretty good. Very unique as well. I don't think i've seen them before.

From the pics I've seen, I think they look pretty good. From my archives of BMW wheels...

FWIW, I've seen them in person on an E46 coupe, and from these pics I think they fit the sedan better.

for god's sake if you going to spend a lotof money on oem wheels might as well get something better and different.

goodluck itsyour car:D

I like 'em, but do they come in anything bigger than a 17"?

Az330im 03-04-2006 02:29 PM

I've always liked these wheels! :thumbup:

I like the way my 18s look, but I'm still thinking of going back to 17s for summer for track wheels and generally just to save some weight.

IMO, the Style 50 is a nice OEM wheel and is ususual since it was never stock on a U.S. model E46. Since it was only available as an accessory wheel from BMW dealers it doesn't look out of place on any model E46 (i.e. even BMW enthusiasts can't tell what model your car is just from these wheels, they have to look for other clues or almost have to look at the badge).

those wheels came on the 03 525's. They look nice on that 3 ^. Thats the first time i've seen them on a 3 series.

DougG 03-04-2006 04:44 PM

Thanks for the pictures, guys. I think this is what I'll go with, and not a bad price at $1300 w/shipping from bmwwheels.com.

Another pic since I just stumbled upon it while on another forum.

This is on a 325i without the sport package..

ProV1 03-04-2006 05:58 PM

^ Thats my car. :) I was just going to post a pic. The #50 wheels are actually made in 16" and 17" for the 5 series and 17" for the 3 series.

I gave them to my mother for her 04 325xi about a year ago, but wish I'd held onto them for my winter wheels.

Here's the specs:

NOTE: The wheel exchange sells good quality reps of those for $120 each.

Wow, its crazy what my car looked like 2 years ago. Holy crap

sna77 03-04-2006 06:20 PM

My mother's car. 04 325xi w/o sports package:
