My Ride: 2002 330ci
Delete please

I have a 2002 BMW 330ci with 183,000 miles on her. My question is that I rotated my tires yesterday after an oil change and noticed that my Michellin Pilot Sport a/s were severely chunking on the inside line of the passenger side. So I know I need new tires!! Haha!!

The wheels I have on it came on the car when I bought it used 10 years ago. I do not know what type they are either they have the BMW logo in the center and that's all I know. I have been told by a mechanic that some of my wheels were slightly out of round about 4 years ago. I will attach a picture of the wheels. I have since fixed my entire front and rear suspension/bushing/ball joints and even flattened out my front strut towers that were mushrooming. So the car is much nicer now! I think that how it is tracking true now has accelerated the wear of the tires.

Question is should I keep my wheels and take the risk of putting new tires and seeing how they wear? Or should I buy a set of Alzor wheels? I see that they are made in China. Are they strong? Have you had any complaints?

What are your feelings about them vs. me just getting my old ones trued up?

Alzors are $100/piece and to have the wheels redone is about $180/piece.

Also fighting between Bridgestone Potenza RE 760 Sports and Hankook V12's...but mostly leaning towards Bridgestones. I use to run a 225/40 r18.

Thank you for all your help!
