What's the consensus on replicas?? I've heard everything from bend, flake, balance probs, crap finish... anyone have em and what's the verdict??

Getting ready for summer is always exciting... replacing the wheels is too, but with the million choices avail...it's not easy to be distinctive.

I'm opting for 18" as the look is nice, although you sacrifice some ride... I've looked at Replicas and aftermarket...

I'm opting for these with a set of the new Bridgestone Fuzion ZR1s Come with a 30 day return warr and look like the same design as 730's

19" AC Schnitzer Type III

I think you sacrifice too much in performance & comfort with 19's.

go 18 or go home :D

From what I've heard..18"s the way to roll...

I wouldn't go less than 18" on an e46.

18" with say a 40mm offset?? some say 35 is better...depends on how far you want them to stick out... 35-40 offset..What's the preference??

03-23-2004, 10:07 PM
I don't think it's a matter of preference, but more of function and design of the rim. How wide are those TSWs in 18" ?

03-24-2004, 01:42 PM
TSW's are 18" x 8" 40mm offset... liking the BBS style.. although better buy a case of wheel cleaner too...

The parallels look good on my steel blue ride too... but wanna be a little different from the usual Hamann crowd..

The Bridgestone Fuzions are gonna be a good tire..very much like RE730's... 225-40-18 $150 each my cost wholesale..

03-24-2004, 03:06 PM
Yeah, it's going to take a little more elbow grease to clean them up. But they are good looking wheels, it will suit your car well ! Can you get more than 4 Bridgestone Fuzions for that price ? :)

I can get as many as I want and sizes.. I work at a dealer so perks of the trade... checkout their site www.thefuzionzone.com for specs on the skins and sizes... if anyones else..maybe can get volume discount on an order... Tire supplier can get all other brands too
PM me with specs
