If I had a gun to my head and had to choose, I'd pick the first style.

I supposed I'd pick the 2nd. I agree that they should stop with the layers.

Not digging these wheels. They are too fussy. I wonder what the weight differences are between the 19's, 20's and 21's.

I would love to see a road test done on the three wheel sizes and see how it turns out.

Too ornate... The extra layer adds weight

If I had to choose I'd take the first but I would like to see something more minimal, race inspired with some concavity/offset

BMW is forcing people to go aftermarket

In my point of view, they are all way too busy.

Even though I did find a stile that I liked, I would never buy such big rims, too fragile for any kind of off-road driving; 19' are barely sufficient for that kind of use (I take my X5 on very muddy off-road every week when I go inspect my pineapple plantation )

Way to busy. I don't like any of these choices. Too many angles, layers, and colors.
