I have just sold my M135i and moving on to pastures new and have the following for sale

19inch VMR 710 in Gunmetal
Goodyear Assymetric 225/35/R19 on the front
Goodyear Assymetric 255/30/R19 on the rear

Tyres have less than 2000 miles on them.
1 of the front has rubbed down a kerb but there is minimal damage and 1 of the rears has a nick out of it, again minimal damage and would probably only cost £75 to fix back to new condition
EO&E

If you are interested please PM me an offer. I cannot upload pictures as I am a technophobe!!!
Buyer collects.
New cost of tyres and wheels back in October was £1,940, someone will get a bargain.

Sooty - you have any pictures of the wheels on without the car being lowered?

Performance Developments took a picture of my car and it is posted on here somewhere. Someone like Sooty might be able to find it for you. I am a complete and utter idiot when it comes to anything high tech and do not even own a camera however I have been reliably informed I have one on my phone :lol:

Hyper has a EB car so thought it was more abt to show that pic for him ;)

PS There is a classified section on the forum which might help you sell them better than posting in this thread ;)

Feel free to move it over or remove the post, I just thought I would give some of the guys the chance to purchase them on here before I get my mate to bung them Ebay.

Thanks for the pictures guys! I really like the Ultras, they even look good without lowering the car - very tempted. Guess it may cost a bit though as I would either spray a silver set with Ferric Grey (if that's how you pronounce it), or go with a black set, which I am not sure about on an EB yet - they tend to look stunning when the car is in motion but I am not sure when it's stood still

What do you think? Too much? Obviously just a quick photoshop job — but I do love Black & Blue though, the Monte Carlo M3 is one of my all time favourite cars...

Black rims are a little like Marmite.. Some love them and some hate them...

I personally think dark rims add some aggressive intent to a car but that's me.. :)

The problem I have is I want to fit a set of black wheels but I want them to look more BMW then after market, and examples that come to mind are the M3 and the M5 as seen here...

Alternatively if no actual BMW alloys that fit (sprayed black) look as good as these above then I guess I need some after market alloys that I can put bmw centre caps on. Any ideas/suggestions guys?
