pic request: any e46 (pref. wagon) on STYLE #157 e9X wheels

Anyone do this yet? Thinking about upgrading the stock non-sport package wheels on my wagon and found these for a semi-good deal. Just wondering what they would look like.



Thanks!

I think those are a good looking set of wheels. They aren't flashy and over complicated and they're incredibly easy to clean. I don't see them on too many e46s but I believe stevenluczynski, a member of this forum is running them.

I would like to see a picture of these as well. I have an E46 wagon, and like the factory Sport wheels, but wouldn't mind upgrading. If you install them, make sure you post up a picture.

Thanks!
Hey, those are my summer wheels! But no pics and it is winter now... Nice because they are 7.5" (vs 8" for many OE 17" wheels), so they are lighter.

I'm a big fan of these wheels. I'm actually curious how they'd look on my sedan.

This +1. I absolutely hate, with a passion, cleaning my M68 split spoke wheels. So many nooks and crannies.

The only parts that can be hard to keep properly clean is are the "valleys" behind the spokes, but not like more "complicated" wheels.

Just note that the wheels come in different widths and center bores. You will need hub adapters for the larger bore.
