Help on decision on which 335is to purchase

After finally negotiating the deal I wanted on the 335is, I now have to decide to order it or take one off a lot that I found. The only difference from the cars is whether I want the one off the lot with the 19 inch 225m's or order one with 19 inch 313's......only hesitant on the 225m's is b/c i've read they're prone to cracking. What do you guys think?

Take the car; don't believe everything you read online.

I find it a bit hard to believe that BMW would put wheels into their production pipeline, without thorough testing.

All things considered, if there is indeed a problem, there is no reason to avoid 225m.

Otherwise, go by what pleases you. They are very different designs and one would probably appeal more to you than the other. I like the 225m personally

And if waiting is not an issue, custom order the car, with whatever you want

They will be covered for at least 3 years, so thats not too bad. Also, If the car on the lot is what you want, you should end up walking out saving as opposed to ordering and waiting.
