I'm considering these wheels for a black 2007 BMW 525xi:
Amazon.com: Touren TR6 (Series 3160) Chrome - 17 x 8 Inch Wheel: Automotive
I like the looks and think the chrome would be a nice touch to an otherwise chrome-less car.
I've never heard of Touren and can't find an official web site.
Googling doesn't return any reviews or any comments regarding this brand name other than plenty of web sites where one can buy them.
Have you heard of this company?

Never heard of them, although that will fit right in with the rest of the 525s out there trying to be all gangstarĀ®.

If I were trying to be "all gangstar", I would be looking at those stupid big wheels that have the spinning hubcaps. I think these wheels are actually a bit understated when you look at most of the designs available. Most have way too much detail and glitz for my conservative tastes.

Really? I guess it's personal taste, but I don't find chrome wheels with a huge lip understated. BBS or ASA wheels though

I really like the design of these wheels Mag Wheels (modeled after the ones from the muscle car era) but I want chrome and they aren't available for my car.

That would look odd on a BMW. What about these? These OZs are similar too. These have a very retro look too.

On a black BMW, those rims give more of a drug deallar look than a gangstar look.

I did get that treatment but I didn't get the darkest tint available. I would have been pissed to get pulled over for that and have to redo the tint. That would have sucked.

Chrome is never the right choice. Say no.

Do what you like, it's your car AND your money. Take opinions as a grain os salt.

No, I have never heard of that company before, so I can't say how good or bad their products are. From what I can find they seem to only do wholesale directly to distributors only. The distributors are responsible for handling the warranties and the customer service directly.

BBS LMs are really the only aftermarket wheel for BMWs.
