Wednesday Wheels Roundup

While to me the E39 isn’t the prettiest 5 series BMW produced, what they did manage to accumulate was perhaps one of the best wheel lineups they ever fitted. Most ended up on the sport models, but from the Style 5 to Style 66, all of them looked great. I especially love the relatively unloved two-piece BBS made Style 19s that were fitted to early 540i sports, but the Style 5, 66 and 32 wheels that made it to other sport models are equally good. Of course, I had to throw in a set of Style 37 “M-Parallels” even though they’re most often associated with other models – and truth told, the Style 32 wheels here are actually optional E38 wheels. Nevertheless, they’re all awesome – which are your favorite?

OEM Staggered 18 inch Style 32 Alloy Wheels, RESTORED Silver Metallic

This is is a refurbished set of wheels that is second to none! Note this a complete set of four wheels done in a silver metallic powdercoat.

OEM E38 740i and 750i optional alloy wheels in exceptional show condition.
BMW PN 36 11 1 091 990 Front
BMW PN 36 11 1 091 991 Rear
Size = 18×8, offset = 20mm Front
Size = 18×9, offset = 22mm Rear
Lug spacing is 5 on 120 mm.
Center bore = 72.56 mm
Fully Restored.
This included a chemical dip to remove all paint, followed verifying the wheels were true, which they all were. There was only a little bit of curb rash on a couple wheels, and this was blended away.
The entire wheel (minus the mounting pad) was then powdercoated with a silver metallic resin. The powdercoat provides a very thick and durable finish. Please see the close up photos.
Very good used OEM center caps with new OEM Roundel emblems are included.
The 60 degree conical seat lug hole surfaces were reamed and the mounting pad was sanded to make sure all the powdercoat was removed from these critical surfaces.
I have spun each wheel on a balancer and verified that it is 100% trued and straight.

You will be hard pressed to find a nicer set of these wheels! At least one photo of each wheel is shown below. Supersize to see the details.

These wheels will fit BMWs of the ’70s, ’80s, and ’90s without modification (no hubcentric rings necessary). If you have an E36 or E46 and want to have the wheels fill the fenders by about 3/4 inch or more, then this set might be the right for you. These will not fit an E39 due to the 72.56mm hub size. To see these wheel on your type of BMW, google the car type and “style 32”.

Packaging. I ship wheels in pairs so this set will go out in 2 boxes. Each pair is double-boxed, with rigid foam material between each box. This adds some cost, but my wheels never get damaged in transit.

Complete set of 4 Custom Mirror Polished Genuine BMW M-Parallel Style-37 (Light-Alloy) BMW Wheels In Mint-Condition.

* All 4 wheels were Professionaly done by Cyrus (Those of you who are an Enthusiast know the quality of my work.)

* All 4 wheels were in good condition before they were done, No Bent or crack or etc…

* There are No Curb-Rush or any other imperfections on these wheels.

* Mirror Finish polsihed Barrel Lips . Each Barrel took about 8 Hour to be polished

* Each wheel was stripped down using Special Aluminum Aircraft Paint Remover before polishing and the Center of the wheels was Machine finish along with Painted Silver Pockets just as they come from BMW.

* 4x New later design BMW Center Caps with Chrome Ring, all caps have good brackets and Prongs intact.

Genuine BMW M-Parallel Style #37 Rear Wheel has been discontinue and no longer can be order through BMW, making these wheels even harder to find.

Please understand and appreciate the amount of work that was done on these wheels. As most of you know the problem with Factory BMW M-Parallel finish that peels off within a year or two. I have solved this problem by mirror polishing the lips that looks much nicer and last much longer then the factory BMW cheap ClearCoated Finish.

I have used Large Option pictures to demonstrate the quality of these wheels so please take advantage of them.

  1. While I respect the work has been put in some of these wheels, the prices asked for some sets are actually higher than you would pay for brand new wheels from a dealer. You just have to search and be persistent as I did
    The last 3 sets of wheels I bought were from a 2 different BMW dealers:
    Set of E39 style 32 18×8 and 18×9: $1150 shipped (made by Cromodora wheels Italy)
    Set of E39 style 32 17×8 all around: $1200 shipped (made by BBS Germany)
    And my favorite currently on my 540:
    Set of E39 style 37 (M parallel) forged: $1700 (Made in Germany)

  2. Forgot to add that M Parallels are OEM 18×9 and 18×8 shipped for $1700. Whine it’s a lot of money, I don’t get people buying replica that are questionable quality and weigh considerably more which you rally feel in unsprung weight.

  3. Great input Z, thanks – and I agree, I actually prefer the OEM look to these over-polished examples, though from experience getting that finish take a lot of work!

  4. Carter, good point. Another issue that buyers forgot when shopping for used wheels is the fact that you can’t verify how old are they and through what kind of abuse they went through. When I sold my rare 18″ style 32 wheels I had ability to tell the buyer I can guarantee they’ll balance perfectly due to fact I bought them new and I had dated receipt to prove it.
