Style 71's: Yay or Nay?

Found a set of style 71 wheels for sale locally and I'm thinking about picking them up. I like the look of 2-piece wheels and would likely refinish them with a polished lip. What do y'all think?

Quick photochop of the wheels on my car, and idea for refinishing below:

Not bad. I've looked at these also. I think the rounded spoke shaped matches well with the rounded body style of the 1 series.

Yeah the set I'm looking at is ET47-50, the photo was just an example of a paint scheme that I thought was interesting

I think those wheels look good on the 1er.

Also, something different.

Well the results came out right around 50/50. Personally I like them so I went ahead and bought the set. Refinishing them will be a fun project and I'll make another thread documenting the process. Stay tuned!
