Did some online searching and found this company called, BUY CAR WHEELS. Thier an online company selling all wheels for most cars. I don't know if any of you have ever delt with them, I was hoping for an opinion or two about thier reputation. Thier prices are real cheap, at least from my experiences. The thing that made me write this is I couldn't tell if the wheels were replicas or OEMs. If by going by the price, it could be, boarder-line. Example, M3 wheels, 19x9.5 for 2001+ at $429.20, same price as my stock 16" OEM wheel from the dealer. Also in comparision, my stock wheels on thier site are at $201.95 each, that's $230 off dealer prices. Now, I could be a N00b in this, though, that does seem to be close to replica prices. Photos of the wheel show BMW branding... here look...


Here is their site: Buy Car Wheels

A similar site, seen here on this forum, has the same wheel at $285, www.BMWwheels.com.

So... any opinions?

i have seen some oem wheels sell for about half the price that BMW lists them. AAARims sells replicas, but their prices are a little lower than those you posted.

Conclusion....I have no idea, they could be oem, they could also be slightly over-priced replicas

OK FINE... damnit I called them up... apparently, they don't like to answer emails... EVER.

Most of thier wheels are "FACTORY TRADE-INs" meaning, that when a dealer customer wanted to upgrade thier vehicle, those factory wheels being taken off would be sold to these people. Thier prices fluctuate. The wheel for my car, seen above, listed over $202 was listed in thier computers for $199. Sweet deal considering that they ARE OEM wheels and are a lot less than the $429.95 that my dealer asked for. So just for those of you wanting OEM wheels, here's yet another source.

No.. it's per wheel. But call them, use thier site only for thier part numbers. I had a bad experience with them and thier site... here is what happened (click).

I'm not so sure that its all that great of a deal if it is per wheel pricing, I keep seeing the BMW wheels I want for my 525iT on Ebay for like $650 to $700, and if it's ~$200 per wheel here, then ~$800 for a used set is not that great.
