Wanted: Set of M351 19 inch Alloys

Hi All,

My F11 535i M Sport came with the 18inch M350 Alloys and I’m desperately wanting to upgrade them to 19 inch M351’s.

I’ve trawled all the eBay sets. Even went to collect what looked like a mint set today, but on arrival found 1 tyre had a bulge and 3 out of 4 had flat spots and possible buckles which were attempted to be masked by poor repairs.

F11 square setup preferred but F10 staggered set up’s still considered. Anyone out there who’s upgraded to aftermarket and wanting to sell?

Thanks.

In all seriousness, you will accomplish one thing by 'upgrading' the alloys : destroying the ride quality.

Look at it this way : that set of wheels you went to look at have hit potholes hard enough to buckle them already - and the bulge on the other wheel/tyre is probably from a pothole too.
Yes, they look nice. But you'll wince every single time you see an unavoidable pothole, even before you hit it.

Hi,

Thanks for the feedback and I genuinely appreciate your opinion but I’m willing to sacrifice a bit of ride quality for the looks. I’ve come from an e92 with MV4’s and the ride was very hard on that, the larger profiles on the 351’s will make for a better ride than that and if I don’t like it I can always swap back, although I’m really not a fan of the 350’s. If it wasn’t for the fact 535i Touring’s are so rare I probably would have opted for a different car with 351’s from the factory.

If anyone has a set I am still very interested.

I have a set in superb condition, with great tyres. They are on my car at the moment, but I am planning to change them in the next few weeks so perhaps we can come to an arrangement. What is the going rate for a set of these?
