Axis Supermesh. Fronts are 19 x 8.5 ET 35 with 1.5 inch lip. Rears are 19 x 9.5 ET 40 with 3 inch lip. They discontinued them years ago and I was trying to hold on to them as long as possible. Unfortunately, 2 weeks ago I was avoiding a pot hole on the left of me and hit a bigger one I didn't see to the right. Resulting in 2 cracked rims on the right side, on the inner barrell of the rim. So they are done.

My wife's daily driver. She is screaming (the wife, not the car) for color matched molding and clear corner and side markers.

I have not seen set of wheels like this on any other BMW. I don't think they're rare, but maybe just unpopular. What style are these and is there a comprehensive list with pics of various styles? And, if anyone has a suggestion for an inexpensive replacement for these, I'm all ears.



Edit: Zoomed in a bit.

there are so many options, it really just depends on what you like. Search the forum and you'll find loads of different rims

There is the inner and outter fender and if you cut too much of the lip off they seperate a little. Again, not a huge deal if you seal it back up to prevent water from getting in there and rusting.

But if you cut it right, you can still roll it and the outter lip will still roll over on the inner lip.

Make sense?

Hahah, I think I got it but will go ahead and practice on my friend's beater to test it out

lol buy my rims and tires haha. They are 225/40/18 tires all around and 8.5 all around. I would deff suggest getting race springs unless you have adjustable shocks or koni's, then id get the sport springs

My wheels obviously






Yes I need a drop. But I'd rather see my car burst into flames. I hate driving.
