Anybody have any experience with replica M3 17" contours? I may take a set off this guy, with tires included, for $100 depending on how pretty they look.

Tell me what you think.

Should I be concerned that they're not OEM? I look at them tomorrow afternoon.

for $100 with tires is ridiculous. Hell I just bought rims but would buy those in an instant if I had the chance. Wait is that $100 for all(which is what i think we are all thinking) or $100 a piece so $400? Either way if they already have tires too that have a little bit of tread left on them it is worth it.

If you hit a pothole and they are a bad quality replica and bend the rim who cares you will have gotten $100 of use out of them.

It's $100 for all, including tires.

i got contour replicas.....paid 500 for 5 rims. I think I still made out. only advice i have is to try them on first cause mine are very wide and I almost had to get my fenders rolled, but i got new suspension instead.

AMG can't build an NA engine that can compete with M engines, so they stick in a supercharger and say their cars are faster. BMW could simply do the same, but they don't out of principle.</span>

my friend vince has the replica contour's on his 325is. Looks really good and they only bent when he slid off the road into a ditch, but i think it woulda fucked any wheel.

haha i think youre right. i hit a deep ass pothole going 35 mph and fucked up one of my Antera wheels on the inside lip. luckily i got a spare in better shape. but shit...that is a hell of a deal. i think you could easily buy them and make your money back, plus some. hey RedLineRU, how wide are your replicas?
