Looking for identical wheel set that was on the prototype 300GPX. Chrome or anodized doesn't matter. I know Eagle 77's are somewhat similar when you look at the "stance", but i like the rounded spokes and deeper lip.

The Eagles look nothing similar, honestly. Hard edges that don't match the round 97-03 bodylines, no dish or big offset, contours inside the spokes, etc.



There are some versions of Mille Miglia's that looked close, I think "Sport Edition" is who makes their wheel models now, sold on tirerack. The actual wheels were said to be some sort of BMW rim. Info was out there somewhere, about 10-15yrs ago, and discussed to death a while back as well.

Looks like something optional for ~'95 3-series or so. Searched car-part.com for 318i, and a few looked right.

The Sport Edition F5 or F7's are kinda close, but don't have the deep lip:

Great, thanks for the research. I'm negotiating pricing on a custom made set right now, as i would like to get as close as possible. The only thing left to decide is what material i want them made from, I was given the options of billet steel- forged magnesium alloy-machined aluminum- or a few more exotic methods involving more dough than the car is worth....
