I seem to have an obsession with them, three sets and I still lust for something different :o

I fancy something 'spokey' the factory style 551s are an option but hard to come by. Anyone fitted anything aftermarket? BBS are an obvious but expensive choice.

I've known busier graveyards than this forum at times, so I don't expect to be flooded with replies 🤔

Not a bad obsession to have compared to some but does need a lot of space I find!

I think the key thing with aftermarket is weight rating. I’m told it isn’t the problem it was a few years back as there are now build standards.

I’ve seen a lot of spam in recent days so the ban hammer has been busy!

I feel your pain! I've also got 3 sets, which in reality is at least one too many, but I still keep looking on eBay.
Recently, I was sorely tempted by a set of E53 Style 57s. Five spokes, right diameter and width, offset not too far off correct............. Then common sense finally kicked-in and I realised that they would be 10 years out-of-date, style-wise, for my F25.

A good pass on those imo, not the nicest looking wheel. My E53 spare was a type 57 albeit with a bigger tyre, I never liked even looking at it when the occasion arose,
