Hi,

My name is Charlie and I bought my M5 about 4 months ago. I just joined the board today. I am looking for some OEM rims. I desparately need a rear rim and could also use a front rim. I would buy a whole set if that was all that is available. Let me know if anyone has any suggestions or rims

thanks

My left rear rim got curbed at a parking garage in NYC this weekend. The front rim has a minor bend in the lip (one of the minor flaws when I bought the car). The front rim does not really bother me that much because you have to look very hard to see it. The rear rim really bothers me.... I have major issues with rims that have kissed curbs.

Welcome aboard. Check the "for sale" section, rims do come up from time to time and board members take pretty good care of their equipment. You can also try ebay and roadfly.
Regards,
Jerry

When you log in, there are various discussion groups to choose from. This one is E39/Z8, there is one for E60, E34, E28 etc. Near the bottom of that page is "For Sale". Click on the hyperlink and you are all set.
Regards,
Jerry

Welcome to the board.

Be careful on ebay- people are selling aftermarket junk, sometimes they know it sometimes they don't. They also sell 'real oe wheels' but they've been repainted.

There is a full set with mich PS2s for sale on ebay- Chris has been trying to sell them for months, but his expectations are unrealistic... maybe they've changed.

found the link in the deleted emails- here is the last auction:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=43958&item=7991555104

good luck. I think he wanted north of $1500:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=7978771981

I offered to buy the rears, and his reply was; I won't split the set- I will "relist them indefinitely"- this from 2.5 months ago...
