bekker imports?

Hi, I was wondering if anyone has dealt with bekker imports. I am looking to buy 18 inch m6 replica wheels from them. here's the link http://www.bekkers.com/Merchant2/mer...egory_Code=k06

Also, what do you guys think about the quality of these wheels? thanks

The only forum they post on is roadfly.org. I think they've been around the longest compared to any other company to be honest. They're local to me and I've purchased products from them for customers of mine. Speak to Anthony there.

They claim that their m6 reps come from the same manufacturer as the other companies.

They seem to be the only ones that carry the 18s M6 in gunmetal.

I bought a pair of euro turn signal lights from Bekkers a few years ago, no problems.

I noticed that too. But Nick at JLevi told me that he carries 18's in gunmetal, too. I had also contacted Bekkers and asked if their wheels were different from Miro, and they said they think they're from the same supplier. So that's all I know.

Jlevi has the 18s in gunmetal?

I contacted Jlevi and they said they don't carry the 18's in gunmetal.

After some requests to Jlevi and **********s, Jlevi is looking into
offering 18s in silver/gunmetal.
Jlevi confirmed that currently, they DO NOT carry 18s in silver/gunmetal.

Let's wait and see if Jlevi comes thru.

Notice that if you go with Bekkers, they offer no tire packages.
Also, you have to buy the BMW caps and M logos.

Also about bekker imports they say you can run an offset of 20 but jlevi says the lowest you can go is 22. I dont think bekker knows much about their porducts. I am a little hesitant to buy from them.

Well, I have decided to give up on my holy quest for 18s in gunmetal.
I even found a distributor in Belgium.
But, after several tries, I could not get a hold of them.
I'm now considering the 19s.

They call "137" the M6 rims

click on jante/BMW icon/e90/137 image

the 136 is silver
the 137 is gunmetal.

Check it out, they have the 18s staggered. 18x8 and 18x9

I sent emails and I called a couple of times.
No response.

I gave up thinking shipping to the US was going to be very high.

Um how do you know that JLevi isn't wrong? I've done business with Bekker import for many years, and they know exactly what they're talking about. Don't you think it's possible that different manuf. of the wheels made the wheels with different offsets? Maybe you shouldn't make cynical remarks that they don't know their stuff, just because two vendors have different offset numbers.

VakhariaINC you are right I should have not said that about bekker imports it is quite possible that jlevi could be wrong.
