Go to www.thewheelexchange.com and look at the Alutec M and M-Pro. And check out the other wheels while you are there. They also sell the same wheels on Ebay. Not sure if they are any cheaper there.

The Wheel exchange wheels are made in Germany. Just like the BMW wheels. Do you think BMW makes their own wheels? The exchange wheels have to pass the same quality government inspection that the BMW wheels do. I guess that makes all German wheels shitty.

I haven't read most of the new suspension threads but it is possible that the combination of a stiffer suspension with less rubber is the deal. It is interesting to hear that 17's are rough. I thought you could really start to feel the difference with 18s or 19s. Good luck with getting everything back to a nice ride!

are the replicas really that bad? I have posted a topic on this a while back and didn't get much response to if they were alright or not. I guess I may have to start a new topic right before i buy my new wheels.
