As I posted further down on the board, I'm buying new tires for my '94 525i. I'm looking for feedback regarding 3 alternatives I can choose from.

1) 205/65-15s on my existing wheels. ~$275.00
2) 225/55-16s on a nice set of used 16*8 BMW rims. ~$1000.00
3) 235/45-17s on new aftermarket 17*8 rims. ~1400.00

I'm leaning towards #2. I like the idea of improving the handling a bit, while keeping the subtle "from-the-factory" look by using BMW wheels. That the used BMW wheels cost quite a bit less than the new aftermarket wheels is a nice plus.
