Hey Guys,

Anyone ever heard anything good about those rims.

http://www.tirerack.com/wheels/at_italia/at_italia.jsp

I like the Riva 2pc in 18x8(figure that would be fine). Any ideas on weight?
It's between that and the ADR M-Sport right now. I like both a lot but there's
about a 500.00 premium for the Italia but I think that's mostly wrapped up
in the better tires(ContiSports).

Danke,
Drew

AZ325Ci is on a distinguished road
The Riva wheel is a pretty nice lookin' wheel!! I really like the polished lips.

I've added the M3 rim also... I was looking at the replicas and some of them actually look like the M3 rim... others don't have the lip. =\ Problem is they probably weight 5 tons a piece!

weights can be found here:

(you have to scroll down a bit to get past the OE rims and get to the aftermarket ones)

when i was rim shopping i considered AT-italia riva until i found out how much they weigh

i believe they are pretty soft too. but the rivas do have lip.

Thanks... I don't think I'll look at those anymore. I do like the M-Sport(not classic) and it probably won't be too heavy in 18"(30lbs for those 20" M-Sport Classics for 2 less inches and a little less detail might be worth 5lbs).

Some of those M3 replicas look pretty good... tough to say without seeing them in person or knowing who makes 'em.

the very light ones tend to be soft and take a beating in potholes, i do not know about at, but bmw makes very decent alloys, i'd get raped and buy from bmw.
