Which rim do you like the best for the 5er?

BBS CH?



Style 172?



Or style 166s?





The 172 is a close third while the CH and 166 is a toss up. Price wise, 166 < 172 < CH but it's only a 200 spread. Your thoughts? Thanks

I like the Radenergies. Im sorry, thats not an option, but in my opinion the best rims for the 5er are the Radenergies. I dont know the model. But it has around 10 spokes.

I like the BBS CH myself. The low offsets on the 5 really make the concave wheels look good. The 172's just make it look like you're trying to have an M5.

BBS CH's look sweet on that car... I've never seen them in person on an E60.

the ch looks great and I am sure you can get a 10" wide in the back for the ultimate concave look.

This would be the one time where I dont choose the BBS CH's. I would certainly go for the 172's... Those are absolutely beautiful in real life. You really notice the aggressive offsets on the rears...

I saw an M5 today and although the 166s are nice, I'm beginning to have second thoughts about them. Might look funny on my 530i. I mean what next? M5 badges?
