I can finally stop kicking myself!

Post by Mr Tidy » Mon May 18, 2020 10:15 pm

In February 2018 I bought an E91 325i that came fitted with 16" wheels and winter tyres, so I had to find some summers and got a set of 17" Style 394 F30 wheels from someone who had swapped them for 18s.

I replaced the 325i in March 2019 with an E90 330i that came with 17" Style 158s that I never liked, and still don't! Seeing as I had both cars for about a month I'm still wondering why I didn't swap them over. :roll:

But thanks to "ZedConvert" I've solved that problem as I bought his 290s and I think they just look so much better on my E90. Plus they sit 5mm further out in the arches!

Anyway as we all like photos these are before and after.

those style 158 are the most horrendous wheels on a e9x sadly they are so common! The new wheels fill the guards nicely :)

I had those on my e89 and they were a doddle to clean, I quite like them and they suit e91

Too true, I really don't like them!

The car came complete with a set of winter tyres, fitted to a scabby set of 158s. :headbang:
