Comparable looks (def not the same though) but at 25% of the price. Also BC forged are in the mix as well.

It all comes down to your budget and how much you're looking to spend on a set of wheels. Forged wheels on avg will run you anywhere from 4-6K+ depending on the setup.

If you're down with spending the $$$ for forged, you'd be crazy not to consider Morr 8.2's.

TRUTH ABOUT VMR/AG: it's all in the FINISH of the wheel. They will always look and feel cheap.

A forged wheel exudes status when not covered in brake dust. Wheels and drop are the only 2 mods a car really needs. Go big or go home.

Trust me, I had VMR's. They are great for a starter wheel, but getting ADV's changed my car from just another BMW to something people pay attention to. Oh, and the VMR's will never be as shiny as they are in that pic.
