I can say with almost 100% certainty that it will not light up. The E90 consumed several rims due to lousy Ft. Bragg & Norfolk roads. I rolled with a square wheel and pimpled tire more than once. What I can say is I could certainly feel the vibration & the tire wore out prematurely and unevenly due to the wheels being out of round.

Replacing the wheels & tires was like getting a brand new car. I tried to save a few bucks and had the wheel "repaired" at the Fayetteville Dealership. This did not work as the vibration came back and slowly grew worse. It was only after the wheel & tires were replaced with new ones did I realize how poorly the car felt.

Sounds like you have a good or offer on some new wheels?
