Replacement wheels for E60 550i 6sp Sport ? OEM?
Dealer diagnosed slow leaks on both rear tires as cracked wheels(!) and
quoted replacements at $600 EACH ! Seems to me, I could buy 4 decent
new wheels for $1200 and sell the front wheels to offset my costs.
Rear tires are 275/35 R 18, but I don't know their width/offset
(fronts are 245/40 R 18)
Are "matching" OEM wheels available aftermarket? Any suggested sources?
(assume the hub roundel pops out and can be transferred)
Any mfg suggestions for a full set of wheels of the original quality?
(Considering the weight/power of the car)
Any reason to explore "repairing" the cracked wheels?

1st thing I would do is ask Dealer to show me the " cracks" that he discovered in Both rear wheels. If they are there ( I'd doubt it) and not a danger, would a "inner tube" work.
Re: You have lots of options
You could also buy my fairly new set. I think I want to go with 550i wheels and tires....
