Replica BMW wheels
Hey guys, question for you,

has anyone ordered, or have any BMW replica wheels, from companys like the ones on EBAY?

if so, what is the difference, or can you tell the difference?

im planning on buying a E39 540i next spring, and I have a couple of wheels in mind (18" MPARALLEL'S, OR AC SHNITZ TYPE III'S)

and BTW if anyone has these wheels for sale I might be interested.

dont bother buying of ebay, purchases from those companies can be a pain in the ass! that is if things go wrong. besides the rims arent as strong as OEM rims

I picked up my M3 (new style) rims from Kal-Tire.
Decent value -- on sale -- net cost (tax, balanced & mounted) with Nokian NZRi summer rubber was about $2200.
Came with BMW centre caps.
(I couldn't really get them cheaper -- since on the web theres shipping and then you probably need to get them balanced etc.)

In addition, Kal-Tire will swap my summer and winters for life. And if you ever get a puncture they fix it for free (I got a screw in the tire a few weeks later from a construction site near home).

Anyway, I am happy with them.

The manager said that they come from the OEM factory (Italy or Germany) and that the quality was top.

Hope that helps.
