Go on let us see what you got !
Be nice to see some non BMW alloys on the E89! I was thinking about paying the extra for the 19", but now I'm thinking of getting the standard ones and buying some non BMW wheels!!!

Are the rears wider than the fronts as standard????

Oh yeah I like those, look bigger than 18's as well! Was it a straight switch on the tyres?

Hmm thinking about it, it does make sense to pay for a second pair of alloys for the same as you'd pay for an upgrade! Plus you have the advantage of being 'different'.

Anyone gone from 18's to 19's, if so did you notice any difference in ride quality??

Bumping an old thread. 2 cracked rear 326's, so looking for some inspiration before taking the dealers offer of 50% goodwill on 2 more :headbang:
I want to stick with 19's (in silver finish), so looking to move away from the usual 296/326's if I can find something else that suits the e89. Nothing too exotic, budget up to £800 and prefer the concave look. Loving Mr Wilks' Veemann FS25's as well as about 5 others in their range but just struggling to find many pics

I did make a mistake agreeing to sell the Veemann Fs 25s to Rob :( so much so i have another set lined up for next week though slightly different :wink: gone for the Fs24s this time . Same size , style , width + virtually identical offsets but a little more detail around the spoke & centre hub

Image

Ive had many sets of aftermarket & Oe wheels but for me the Veemann quality & finish is way beyond the price paid .

Very nice, another fine choice. :thumbsup: The 24's are one of the styles I'm considering along with the 4, 28, 23 and my favourite the 18 although that's only available in 5x112 PCD :x
The one thing that worries me is the finish, they're described as silver/machined. Is the machined/polished face well lacquered?
I did think the 24's might be a little fussy for me detail wise around the spokes and I wondered if they'd be a pain to clean. Put me on the short list when you decide to sell them and then I can see for myself :poke:

That’s because photobucket ruined things for everyone by forcing you to pay to use the hosting service, people don’t like being blackmailed so the pics all disappeared :roll:

Agreed...it's all because of greed :(
People could share their pictures on Instagram/Google Drive etc (when it is the case there is no issue in seeing them in the forum) or simply attach them to the message :wink: Not going to pay a subscription
