Advice on Best place for M5 reps for e90?

hey everyone,

just wanted to ask advice on recommended places to get a set of the 19" M5 reps online. i have read that the reps made from Italy are the most accurate to the OEM version.

secondly what would be the best offset to get without getting spacers. i have the sports package and will not lower the car and will probaly run 265's in the rear.

thanks everyone, you guys are always great help.

any chance M5 rep owners can recommend the right offset for these wheels with just the normal sports package. i'm not going to lower the car and did not want to use any spacers. thanks

Ah I remember that thread. I think it was an e91 with some serious concave M5 reps. They looked so good. Was it finally decided that they couldn't import those into the US?

Cheers

How much does it cost to ship to Croatia, set of E92 M3 reps ? Do they look better than M6 reps on black E90 ? Some photos maybe ? How much is the price for the set of wheels in 18" for E90 ?

Cheers

On the wheels delivered papers, a company called "Forest Srl" is mentionned.
NOTHING over the Internet (i searched for hours) ...

No idea of the company, in my opinion this is the name of the ironry, or something like that ...

The only thing which is cleared, but just half clear, it is the model.
Called "Replica 244" or "PICT.244" ...

don't try to search over the internet, i tried to ...

very very special ...

Before ordering from Richie read my post in this thread starting on page 12 @ post 234.

I realize this is an old thread, but I am warning people whom may stumble on other threads.
