Love to see the little fox head next to the 34746, such fantastic wheels. Great price, too.

Yup, Fuchs only makes the good stuff. I love this video where they explain forging process:

65s are cast, you can discern the casting tell-tales on the back of the wheel in some areas, particularly around the numbers.

The sickness is real, and I fully support it. Another benefit of brand new wheels is you can apply a ceramic coating on them from the start and keep them fresh for a long time. It's nice not needing any prep time.



Fortunately I'm a huge fan of the Style 65s and ever since refinishing them, I enjoy them a lot more so they'll be staying put.


I'm thinking about possible new wheels for the Cayman I just picked up and would love a new set of BBS CH-Rs...but don't think I can justify the cost.

Style 37's are my favorite BMW wheel by far, they look good on damn near any 5, 6 or 7 series from the 80's to the early 00's (Don't like them on 3's, it's a big car wheel)

I had e38 offset style 37's on my e23 and loved them. I'd run them on the M5 if it didn't make the car look like a 540i.

If I pick up a e39 beater I'll probably get another used set.

Ah crap. I wonder if I should buy a set preventative, for my future V12 e38 that I intend to own one day...

One of the best BMW wheel designs, for sure!

This thread has some nice candy..

I love M Parallels for the look, the lip, and the fact that they are forged.

Amazing price on a timeless wheel. 18x9’s square setup is killer!

I see the dragonfly on the white 528...
