My avant garde's bent within a few weeks and I am extremely careful when driving and avoid bumps/railroads/etc. I was running Hankook V12's 235 in the front and 265 in the rear (10 width in the back and 9 in the front). Replicas are hard..you just never know. I had to purchase a new wheel to replace it because it went bent badly.

Great choice. I just swapped out my OEM's for Volk Forged Performance ME's. No regrets.

The VS8.2s are still lighter, and their finishing is amazing. The concavity difference from the front to rear is also amazing. They are truly a top-notch wheel that you will sit and admire almost as much as you sit and admire you BMW!

It's been 7 weeks now and I still haven't received my replacement wheel after I sent my payment for shipping for the replacement.

These guys just come in here trying to see save their reputation but clearly they just putting up a front and don't back their products or their even their word. BS company to deal with for customers and vendors. Pat from SonicTuning has been pressuring these guys to send me my replacement but they don't even respond to his calls or email.

That is a bunch of BS! I wouldn't have waited that long...heads would roll.

Yeah I know. I'm just spreading the word out now about the horrible customer service. I don't really want to bother Pat@sonictuning anymore. He's helped enough and been great through the whole process but it has come to a point where we both don't see a good outcome from this and a lot of wasted time chasing Alufelgen for the replacement wheel they said themselves they will send to me. But it's all just BS trying to get good rep.

Hopefully this will help other members in their decision when looking for which wheels to purchase.
