that actually looks pretty decent and will look even better with the drop!

Those rims look like 7 series rims? I don't think they are 16" unless its some similar replica?

The photoshop job is terrible, but the real thing with a drop will look good.

25et is only useful info if you post the width of the rim. An 8" @ ET20 (the typical aggressive E30 wheel) is 13mm closer to the fender than 7" @ ET25.

I've seen these before in real life, or ones very similar (ESM wheels) and they looked really good. Your pshop is a little more like 17", though, just so you know what to expect.

btw they are 7.5" wide

these rims are looking like a hit or miss... I saw them last night on a 7 series and i liked the concave to them. I know that nothing beats a dish on these cars.. or any BMW for that matter. but its one of those things if breaking through and being different and yet still looking good. but again.. can't look good for everyone. these rims are not set in stone. i am still looking at other options in the 15"-16" range.

thanks for the comments all!

Are you sure they will fit? (assuming you are going to run e36 5-lug.)

So wait, you're going to get a 4-lug version of these then?

...I don't think they're bad, but I can't say I'm a big fan either... just my opinion.

Strange they only sell 4x100, but only have a pic of 5x120.

Anyway, ET25 7.5" would look pretty good with no fear of rubbing, etc.
