Fancied some matte black alloys (in the correct fitment), which looked almost stock with a slight difference. I'm very happy with these, although sourcing them was an utter nightmare. Took me a few weeks but found a supplier in Italy willing to post them to me.

Look really nice!

Where did you get these from, do you have a link?

How much did they cost including delivery?

What's the specs, are they any wider than the standard wheels?

That looks really good, and proves that with the right design / offset, you don't need to go to 19" to fill the arches.

For me, 18" is by far the best option for F20/F21 cars.

I´m trying to find a 18" winter setup for my M135i. Will all 18" wheels with the correct ET fit over the brakes? The specs of the wheel that I´m looking currently are 8x18", ET43. I´m going to be using 225/40 tyre all around.

I´m trying to find something that is quite simple and easy to wash... :shock:

No, those Riva's won't fit nicely, expect rear arch contact.

Why not just go for the 624m's? They're a bog standard fit on a 1 series, and highly sought-after/resellable.
2k is just a bit too steep, I actually posted the link to the wrong ones,it was these ones. If i went for ones without the wider rear would that make any difference?

If it comes to it I will probably have to just let my bank balance take a hit and get the 624m's
If you type in your make and model then the website will show you a range of wheels that fit your car, instead of just looking at sizes and widths.

Just double checking, but the bmw 441m wheels are a straight fit for the m140i, aren't they? Anyone knows the fitment?

8" et 34mm also fine with M4 LCA only and M4 LCA/TS upgrade - its what I ran on my car with both H&R sport springs and Birds B1S springs

8.5" et47mm = plenty of room at the rear for MPSS 255/35/18
