Used OEM or Replica 313 Alloys?

Hi all,

I badly want, actually need 313 alloys on my E92.

What's the best way - either used genuine oem or would you go for replica's, so you can put non run flats on straight away?

The total cost or either will work out the same.

What to do?

Unless you get an absolute steal, don't entertain kerbed or lightly kerbed used 313's, they're a total bitch to get properly refurbed.

Thanks for the tip! Something to now think about, as i'm likely to curb them at some point!!!!

I had a rear 313 refurbed by Lepsons ... it is superb ...

Currently sitting in my garage - soon to be used given my apparent inability to judge kerbs properly

I've heard only good things about Lepsons, unfortunately I'm no where near them, but have had 313's refurbed by two companies, neither experience ended well...
