Help: Rims and Tints for My New 5

I am considering purchasing Rondell wheels for my new 525 and tinting the windows also. Any suggestions, advice, questions, comments, or concerns?

Those wheels seem a bit small on that car. I'd step it up an inch or two.

Tint would be nice though, maybe 30%?

Very nice car though.

go for m5 rims like mine. they look awesome on any newer e39. check out my rate my car page for a quick look at them. the pic is kinda dark, and i have more if you want. they are a pretty penny though for oem ones. replicas are much cheaper

Those looks kinda like ACS Type 3 replicas. For a 5-series I would try to find a deeper deep dish look than those personally. 5-series cars with deep dish looks amazing.

What do you suggest...I'm kind of limited on my budget. I can't spend over 1500 including rims and tires....Im just a college student. Those ACS Type III replicas are 645 and I can get some great tires on there and I'd be under my limit. Gimme some suggestions. Thanks

I've seen some nice hamann replicas on 5-series, kind of like hm2's but with a wider lip, I think that is what they are called.
