I want to get myself some Throwing Star rims for my '95 525.

Just wondering what size tyres they take ?

You might consider 245/45-17 vs 235/45-17. Just a bit more meat to protect the rim and it also brings the speedo to within less than 1% error correction. I have these exact wheel/tires on my 530i and I am very, very happy.

Any chance of a pic?

Thanks guys.
