What do you think of these rims?



They only make these in 18X7.5 and they are made by a company named ADR. Will these rims fit my BMW without any fitment problems?

I have a silver bmw will these look good?

18x7.5 seems kinda slim for all 4 corners. I would look for something in at least 8" if not 8.5". Other than that they look okay I guess. Chrome is not for me, I'd have to see how they spin before could give a yay or nay.

I'm not into chrome, espcially with gold rivets. But if this was silver I would like it.

Kinda looks like my old wheels.
Here are some pics

Damn ya'll got jokes, I dont know why everyone here hates on chrome. I'd have to see them on the car before I can give my real opinion.

Make up your OWN mind on your wheel selection.

Geez. It's YOUR car. YOU decide if a wheel looks good on YOUR car.

Everyone is going to have their opinion. You're never going to get a consensus. Just decide on a wheel that YOU think looks the best on YOUR car.

How long did it take you to decide what color car to get? Man...

Gotta agree with Vinny on this one...sounds like you say you like something until someone doesn't like the wheel...then you just up and say it's boring or you don't like them anymore...

If you wanna rock the chrome then go for it...you're the only one who needs to be happy with it...

I can see it as a possiblity. I think no E46 should be rolling on anything except 19's though. :tongue:

All depends on the road conditions...
19" wouldn't last a week in St. Louis...too many potholes.

I concur. I drove through St. Louis many, many times before. Roll in 19s if you dare. I know I wouldn't--not in St. Louis. =)

I'm telling you, check out the Hartge Classics. Similar style to what you posted but better looking. And they stand out without needing to be chrome.

If you just gotta roll with the chrome, I'm pretty sure you can even get them in chrome too.
