How do these wheels look?

Put my m3 wheels on my 550i. What do you guys think? Yay or nay?

The look is there. Maybe some 15mm spacers up front

I think it looks decent, but IMHO It lacks some "chunky-ness" thats needed with a larger car like a 5 series. For me, the spokes are too thin for that car and its dimensions.

Stick with the Style 172s. Great looking wheels in their own right.

Thanks fellas, I'm gonna find something better that doesn't require spacers, but I'll keep them on until then. I have 25 mm spacers up front and 5 in the rear. I wish it came with the style 172s they are sick. It came with bbs 18in style 124s, which I am not a fan of looks wise.

Looks decent, maybe a change-up of spacers for a more aggressive look and to me you need more tire... but then again I'm a fat tire kinda guy. Currently running 255/40/19s on my E71 fitment Style 232s (19x9 Et48 front w/ 15mm spacer and 19x9 Et18 rear) on my E61.

I think it looks pretty good. But don’t have anything to compare it to before hand. It doesn’t look bad. I wouldn’t buy those for it, but if had laying around wouldn’t feel bad running them.

I'm missing something here.

I thought the 3 Series needs hub centric rings to use 5 Series wheels, shouldn't 3 Series wheels have a problem with the hub bore being too small for the 5 Series? Forgive me, but the hub bore is 68.5mm on one car and 72mm on the other.

It's only the E39 AFAIK.

I like the style 122 and 138 wheels on E60. Something about big fat five-spokers...

They are the same hub bore size surprisingly
