Anyone using this wheel?

What do you guys think?

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/18-Bm...8269QQtcZphoto

I saw these on a blue e46 and they looked great (but I don't know anything about their quality). How 'bout on my Sparkling Graphite E90?

Any quality issues with this manufacturer/retailer?

What I'm looking for, by the way, is a simple, "BMW-looking" wheel with a lip. I like simple and wide open so they're easy to clean. CSL's look great, but I want a lip. Open to suggestions.

Thanks.

If you get those you will probably want to run a spacer in the rear

I'm not too concerned about the rears tucking in a bit, but I do plan to contact them to see if any other sizes/offsets are available.

But I'm more interested in any quality feedback you guys might have.

Thanks.

I bought a set of wheels from them when I had my Stang. I swapped from
4-lug to 5-lug on my 92 GT and then went with chrome 18" Saleen rep's.
They were actually very nicely done and I was impressed with the quality for the price. I am a CNC machinist too, so I know a little about what to look for in the way of a nicely done metal product. Also if I remember right their feedback was pretty good. That is such a help when it comes to Ebay. Let me see if I can post a pic or two.

Good question! I guess I never updated my deal there. I actually bought an
E90 335 TiAg, black, Step, Sport, Prem.
Sorry! I am in love with it! Although that second pic makes me miss the old girl a bit. Had it for 12 yrs. and did everything to it. Blower, Programmable engine management sytem, everything. Couple more pics.

Oh! It looks like I snuck a glimpse of my wifes S4 in that one pic.
Hope nobody holds that against me. That makes four turbo's in the garage.
