This guy has a lot of rims for sale. Replicas that look pretty damn good.. Any idea if I should get these for my 2k1 525i? I'm sick of the small stock rims.

thanks

Those are some great looking replicas, just question the finish quality on for the rims and ask if he has had any problems with the paint chipping...

I would say go for it

I can't afford BMW prices so will have to go with replicas - bear in mind most rep's are made by companies who make plenty of other good quality rims of their own, not just a cheap assed company set up to create cheap assed replicas.

Eric S. is on a distinguished road
I agree with above posts, but want to add a general caution regarding buying ANY non-name-brand automotive products on e-Bay. I've not had good experience doing so, and I think my experience is typical.

I'm not saying don't do it, but ask around. No amount of wheel balancing in the world can overcome the vibration from an off-center hub in a cheaply-made rim/wheel. Good luck!

Based on the above how much would you consider "affordable" to invest in replicas? The answer may get you a used but good oem!!!
