New BBS CY Wheels

I haven't seen these. Might be some of the best BBS wheels I've seen in a while. Any thoughts?

Looks not doing it for me. Not too much into cast wheels on my car even if they are from BBS. Limited fitments, no weight data

Those just don't do it for me...they look very plain jane. The same damn wheel thats been around for years. They don't belong on the E92 IMO.

Harsh... I would suspect there a few of us that will not ever have our cars on a track and only want the wheels for the looks they provide.

Never said no, and you're entirely right...But I'm just saying that the people that DO track their cars have a greater appreciation for functionality than looks.

First let me tell you my knowledge of wheels is limited to the fact that I know they should be round... I appreciate quality and would not mind paying for "race" quality wheels should they work for every day driving? My guess is that they would not work for everyday day driving though.

I understand that. They are great for the track but I personally just don't like the looks. Functionally, I'm sure they are superior to most other wheels. I'm going more for looks as my car will seldomly see the track.

It's all good...but them being good for everyday driving is entirely dependent on the wheel...for example, the 1st, being made of magnesium, is not suited for potholes! making it not a very good street wheel.
