    167M style chrome rims.

    Just though I'd share the new wheels for the z.

    These were apparently M6 wheels that I noticed other members using. The shop I got them from chromed them and they look amazing.

    Those are great looking. What size tires are you using and is there any problem with clearance. Thanks

    They're 245 40 19 front and 285 35 19. Continental summer sport I believe.

    Tirerack recommends 255/40 19 for the front tires. Was there a reason that you chose the 245/40 19s

    I took the car to Les Schwab tire, and they recommended the 245 size.

    Do you have any clearance issues on full turns or bumps. The offset is different than the 18 factory wheels. Im going to buy a new set of four wheels from BMW. The price is actually quite reasonable.
    Are you using silver or black lug nuts.

    I have no clearance issues at all. Which wheels are you getting? I think they're black.

    If I swap out the factory 18 wheels I will go with new 167M wheels. My dealer will sell me a set at a very attractive price. I may just stay with my OEM wheels

    I also love the stock wheels, I kept them and will probably swap them back and forth. You can't go wrong either way.
