M3 Reps?

Hey all,

Just wondering what your thoughts are on M3 reps. Some guy on CL wants to sell me a set with center caps and //M logos for 650. Good deal?

Am I going to bend them going over potholes? The guy says he doesnt know who makes them or what the weight is. I haven't had experience with aftermarket reps so I thought I'd get some input. For my old car (Acura Integra), people were very happy with Rota which made replicas of tuner wheels. Outside of that, I'm not sure how quality will be....

IMO, the M3 style wheels look off on non-M3s. I would go with CSLs, V710s or Avant Garde M310s for an upgrade.

Hey guys,

I think there might have been some confusion. I'm looking for this style wheel - http://i.imgur.com/Rb1Nu.jpg.

Either way, are there any problems with quality of knockoffs?

I cant remember what they are called, but ya what I am running are M3 reps. The pics in my garage are teh M3 reps from **********s. They have the style your looking for too... I think they are called CSLs or CSL reps.

There are a few different variants based on wheel size and color it seems...
