Update on my 325i

Before and After. I know there is a thread in general discussion but here it is anyway. This was two months after I got the car and I got a set of m3 ltw replica wheels.

Here are some more. One at the track like above though the car is dirty. One at home being washed, and the other two are at the former capital of NS (long time ago, emphasis on long) Annapolis Royal.

They are a sweet wheel for sure, but mine were cheap replicas and one of the wheels had a noticeable dent in it, and they wouldnt balance correctly resulting in constant wheel vibration.

I got the borbets for a good deal and they only weigh 20.5lbs each which I thought was reasonable for the amount of money I paid.

I was using Hamann Hm3's which I bought from BMWF1 on here but when I installed the Pss9's they were far too wide to fit. These are now for sale by the way.

What is it about the borbets you guys aren't feeling? Nice polished lip, lightweight simple design. Not as flashy as the HM3's but like I said they don't fit any more.

Can't use the ltw's anymore they are basically scrap. Constant vibration (not just with the brakes applied) over 70 which intensifies severely over 100. I get a sore back driving to halifax (1hr) at 120. Its ridiculous. Plus they are heavier and I wanted a reasonably priced lightweight wheel. I only payed 179 US each for the borbets new from the tire rack.
