So, I wake up this morning, back out my car to give it a wash and find that my rear passenger side tire is completely bald and flat. I was furious:ben:!, so I go online to price tires for my car. And they are expensive. I am getting my fathers E92 rims and tires in a month or so, so I decide it is best to just wait this one out. I end up with the original rims that came with the car... the ugliest rims ever created by BMW... style 34's. When we got the car, back in 2001, this is what came with it. These lasted about a week. Took these off and have been sitting in the garage for a while. I use them as winter tires.

Who ever designed these must have had terrible vision. He must have stood back after designing them and forgot to put his contacts in, and said "wow, those sure would make a BMW look good!" But if he had remembered his contacts, we wouldn't have had this awful rim style. And the funniest bit is, he forgot his contacts TWICE! There is a facelift version of this rim style (style 46).

For those who are interested, this is what I had...

and this is what I am stuck with for a month...

Racelands and it won't be so ugly.

It might even look good with some slam. But if you're only having them on for a month, they're not that bad. They could be Chrome TIS 24s.

90% sure those are not steel... aside from being 15's I actually really like those wheels.
I could be wrong, but I think he was meaning they look like the steelies on other cars, which I think they do. But they are not made of steel haha

yeah, a stock 323i only needs a few things to really transform it....i.e. get a drop and some clears or smoke lighting, and you'll be set!!!

Dude I want those steelies, yours are soo clean and new... I got a flat rear tire last night so I had to use a buddy of mine's e34 15in ugly ass rim. But my car is LOW on coilovers and those fat tires tucked WAY up in there and are almost rubbing. It looks awesome, now I want these style 34s LOL

AND yes the rear right is sooo much nicer to ride with, especially with a vert
