Personally I'm not a fan of complete chrome rims, I think they look cheap. Chrome is better left as accents like chrome lips on silver wheels etc. However that's just personal opinion.

Finish aside though, I think the style of wheel would probably look alright.

I hate my chrome rims. They pit and peel too easily, and it looks like those would too.

I totally agree with you. A 5 series is a classy car, not one that you bling up a la Unique Autosport and its G Unit or NFL client base.

I don't know if they'll look nice

Let's ask the internet. They'll be driving my car and have to look at them everyday.

well Paul does make a good point, it isn't us that are buying the rims, it isn't us that are going to be driving the car, so basically our opinion means shit, I personnally don't like chrome rims but if you do then go with it.

well, if someone was undecided about something, the most logical thing to do would be ask someone else for advice.

depends if u have a specific theme in mind, and if you like them, go for it. But don't just buy it, just because you're having a good deal.
For $1200, you have an infinite number of choices

go on ebay, and look for the wheel exchange or lakeshore wheels, they have really good quality 18" M-Parallel reps for very good price.

and I'd lower the car before the wheels anyways.
