why not shadow chrome?(like M5) to all his own but plain chrome on rims are just nasty especially now that Your fixing Your car up so nicely, oh and 19, but 18 will work fine aswell and You'd save a couple of bucks

19's for sure... they'll be fine.
depends on what color your car will be when done if they should be shadow chrome or not.

... but please PLEASE don't go with chromies... just way too tacky on a car which does not have a lot of chrome elsewhere.

well shadow chrome isn't really shinny enough for me.. Its true i donn;'t have alot of chrome,, but i should be adding a chrome grill to my car.. not the full grill but the outer edges.. Plus i should have air ride in a little while so my car will be sitting on the floor with chrome..

dude, on a BMW dont go chrome unless Your gonna do shawchrome(m5 style) , You can put big ass chrome wheels on a PT cruiser or some shit , thing like that
(no pun to PT cruiser drivers, but to me it looks like something some bling bling bitch would drive)
