Jet Black 1 series Black/Chrome Mesh Wheels

Joined the 1addicts forum a few months ago. Haven't got around to posting pics of my car. its a 128i Jet black with black and chrome mesh wheels 18". on yokohoma 225/40Z R18 tires. More pics on the way. For now one dirty picture, one clean picture. I like my set up but im thinking about blacking out everything a headlight upgrade and a rear lip spoiler. Any suggestions welcomed. Nice to be a 1addict

My suggestion? I would put the OEM wheels back on. But it is your car if you are happy with it then let it be.

Horrible, HORRIBLE wheel choice in size, color, offset, and design. But... If you like it then thats all that matters. lol

Welcome. Enjoy your stay.

Welcome to the forums, don't take the verbal beating too harshly. Lots of good wheel choices available. Good luck with the ride.

I've seen these wheels on a late 90's Pontiac somewhere... I believe the driver was also smoking what appeared to be a black and mild cigar, but it sure smelled like canibis.

Yeah, pretty bad choice. They don't really fit the car at all.

I'm sorry man but I just can't get along with those wheels. Your car and your choice but when I look at it I can't help comparing it to something similar to an old Buick when you're riding on those wheels.



The 1er seems to lend itself best to motorsport influenced designs such as CSL type mesh wheels. IMO of course.

One can argue that addicts see the world differently? Sorry man, tryna help you out on this one. Don't think we'll win tho

Wheels section has tons of ideas and you'll probably go through a few sets or at least change your mind a few times during your time on here. Welcome.
