E39 Dinan Forged Light Weight Wheels

I wanted to post this to share and save deep down in this archive and informative group. Recently installed 18” Dinan Forged Light Weight wheels with brand new wrapped PS4’s and Dinan 4 Piston BBK

Looks good. If memory and a quick search are correct, looks like the wheels shave ~7 lbs/corner, curious if that offsets the BBK

The BBK is lighter than stock calipers by 4-5 pounds iirc. Rotors are lighter too

Nice setup! BTW Jed apparently does amazing work refinishing those things should the need arise.

Everything was recently purchased new, the wheels where found second hand by a member on here through a Craigslist ad.
