I respect everybody's opinion and thats why I post, but I'm blown away how many people dislike chrome rims. is it just BM cars or all cars you guys don't like them on.

If my car wasnt a lease i would of probably put on ACS type 3 chrome rims.Theres only a few chrome rims i would put on a BMW but not the ones you posted.I think chrome rims belong to cars like Lexus and Benz.

Yeah, its my car.. thanks. The rims are Paradyme - www.paradymealloys.com ... I'm in the gallery at their site, not the greatest pics though. I also like the Paradyme F/303 and F/225c.

Here's one.. (before tint)

They're pretty heavy.... and I do notice my car is quicker with my factory winter rims on. But its not THAT much of a difference, and definitly still worth it, IMO
