zracing wheels
 
Hey guys

I m just wondering if anyone had tried them before. I saw a set for under 1500$ but I m not sure of the quality . They have pretty good reviews online but I have not seen much reviews from BMW owners

Thanks

AFAIK, they only sell reps.

Rep city.

yes they are all replica wheels. But I m wondering if anyone here had some experience with them. I have seen other forums with good reviews , but not much on the bmw community

Replica wheels are the cheapest quality (if I can even use that term with respect to reps) with the minimal attention given to safety and integrity, sold at big markups. There's a reason they're dirt cheap. Buy proper aftermarket wheels or keep your OEMs. Or buy replicas and enjoy bent and cracked rims.

Replica wheels are a miss or hit. Save your money and save more. Then consider choosing a good quality brand.

Yes I went ahead an order a set of APEX Arc-8s :) .

The fear mongering around replica wheels is quite comical.

FWIW, I've run multiple sets of replica wheels on my cars with no issue whatsoever. Adding to that, I've hit some massive Toronto potholes and even had a head-on encounter with a 4" curb (at speed), without so much as a bend.

By contrast, I currently see all sorts of OEM BMW wheels for sale with hairline cracks, examples available in the own forum's FS thread.
My own set of OEM ZHP Style 135 wheels are out of round - no potholes hit since new, not even curb rash.

So many of my cars' factory wheels have become unusable for absolutely no good reason other than crappy build materials - OEM wheels from makes including Chrysler, Lincoln, Acura, Honda, and BMW.


Do your research on the actual wheel you're considering.
ZRacing sells everything from BST wheels (no name - offshore brand, no reliability information), to Fast Wheels (established brand - fully available manufacturing specs).

Also, check the stamps on the inner face of the wheel.
Make sure they have JWL / VIA certifications, and get a set that is load rated as high as possible (Minimum of 1500lbs / 685kg +)
