The CSL Style wheel has been an iconic piece of BMW styling since it first debuted on the E46 over a decade ago. Timeless and clean, this design looks great on most cars, but looks especially good on a BMW. As we’ve mentioned before the F10 BMW 5-Series is a fantastic looking and imposing saloon, but the stock BMW F10 wheels are so bland it really sells the car short. That’s why Wayne H brought his F10 to see Sr Mod Expert Alan at ModBargains to get the 5 looking like Munich intended.
The concave wheel look is all the rage these days, and the Sportline 8S marries that classic CSL style with modern concavity flawlessly. Alan set Wayne up with a Semi-Deep concave profile up front paired with a deep concave rear profile to make the most of that 19×10 width.
Not only do they look great, but Sportline 8S wheels also offer an incredible value for the money. For what these wheels cost, normally you could expect to get a set of decent but heavy cast aftermarket wheels. The Sportline 8S isn’t even in the same class – manufactured in a completely different way, the flow form, rotary-forged Sportline 8S is both lightweight and strong, superior in every measurable metric to literally any cast wheel of the same size.
Of course, your wheels are only as good as your tires, so Alan recommended a set of Hankook Ventus V12 Evo2 tires to give the car better grip to compliment the benefits of the lightweight wheels.
Not only does the styling of the Sportline 8S make the car look sportier and more aggressive, but also because the style of the wheel face compliments the car in a “natural” way, it looks CLASSIER than stock too.

A set of great looking wheels and a drop can be the difference between being parked in the front of the Valet line at Morton’s or being relegated to the back of the lot. Do you really want to fade into the background? Stand out and be noticed with a great set of wheels like the Sportline 8S.
