OEM Replica Questions (eBay)

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/BMW-3...em170204041183

I know these will "fit" my car (07 e90 335 w/ sport), but are the OEM version of these wheels 8.5in. all around as well???

The offset is 37, so does this mean they will stick out farther on the front than my standard 8.0 inch???

Is there an advantage/disadvantage to losing my staggered setup?

Does anyone run these replicas? Are they crap quality?? Their cost frightens me (cheap!).

I know nothing about rim sizes, and I'm just looking for a nice alternative to my 162's for the summer. Thanks everyone.

9mm LESS clearance on the strut side, and the outside edge of the wheel will EXTEND an extra 3mm.

That is the difference in the front between the 8" 162s and the 8.5" wide replicas for your front wheels. Hardly anything to worry about.

Thanks guys. I think I'm going to pull the trigger on these puppies. I don't know anyone else who makes replica 193's.

With tires, tpms, mounting/balancing AND shipping, I'm going to save a TON over the CSL's I was going to get (even though those were 19's)

These replicas are just so crazy cheap, it worries me...

If it worries you, ask the vendor to send you copies of their TUV & DOT certifications.
