Jules,

I found this pic on DTM today and I think these wheels would look awsome on your car. They're 18" Hamann HMII. Please don't go smaller than this, even these look like 17's from first glance. I know you're thinking about 17" HM-III's.:(

17"s look like this:

they dont look that small..

I was just hoping the HM3's would look even better because of the deep dish..

I think the pic is photoshoped, but i personaly would go big. at least 18" for your car. I know the 3pc thing is stopping you, hahaa. i know its hard but i think it'll just look better with bigger rims.

I think I have to go with Randy on this one. He has a thing for the HM II's for some reason. LOL. He told me if I was getting an E39 540i sport that I should go with the HM II's as well.

The HM III's I think are too busy for the E34's. The HM II's are plain and simple and I think that is the way to go. BTW the shadow trim is lookin' pretty sweet on your car.

L8R,
Dave

Hrmm.. I guess they do look a bit small, even on this compact.. *grumble*.. Dammit, why does hamann have to make their HM3's only in 17?!?!

Aren't the HmII's cheaper than the HMIII's
You can get better tires with the larger HMII's

In a way, yeah they are cheaper, if I get 17" HM2's it cheaper, but its more expensive if I get 18" HM2's over 17" HM3's.


How does getting HM2's affect tires?

Ok, maybe the HM2's do look better...

Look at these beauties! How could you possibly want a set of wheels that visually look like 13's?... you're making a big mistake Jules!

I personally like the HM2s as well. I hope to get a set sometime in the future.

Price...assuming you have a price limit. Lets say you decided to get the 17 hmIIs that means if you really had your heart set on the 17 HmIII's but instead you bought the HMII's that means that you have money left over to put into your pocket or add to the type of tire you were going to get.

man you have to go with 18" minimum.
I got e36 and it's stock with 17" your car is much bigger, so u need bigger rims

No, actually, I have my heart set on those HM3's but they only come in 17" and I want 18" so I'm gonna get HM2's.
