Be careful of NEEZ USA, aka EISENHAUS

They pretend that the 19x9.5 +35 offset (the official NEEZ offset for E92) does not exist for the QD7 and continue to push the +25 offset for the E90 when I'm shopping for my wheels. Very unethical business practice (nothing new here though). Avoid at all cost.

See this:

http://www.neezusa.com/?_page=11

They also claim to be able to get the wheels in the finish other than the hyper silver and hyper black offered by NEEZ Japan. I highly doubt the source of these wheels......

I did and they are shipping on Tuesday directly from Japan

A vendor that should go unnamed (a very, very good one I might add) tried to offer me a better deal and took the initiative to contact NEEZ USA. The response from NEEZ USA was disappointing. They completely denied the existence of the +35 offset, which can be found in NEEZ Japan's website. They went as far as telling them there's a 19X10 that they can order from Japan but no 19X9.5 +35

Here's a link to the E92 specific offsets from NEEZ Japan. You don't have to know Japanese to read the numbers:

Problems? I don't have any at all. I already had the hook up in Japan long before this happened. Of note, Eisenhaus had also stepped in about a month ago through PM and tried to offer the wheels to me at a discounted price as well.

This is just an FYI for the unsuspected buyers.

Irrefutable prove that +35 offset exist for the rear wheels

Here are the labels on the box that I received from Japan. As you can see, the rear offset is +35, which Eisenhaus / NEEZ USA claims does not exist.

Well they also told me they only had +25 for the Qd7 for the e92. I went ahead with it and frankly i am real happy. Why? Because they look helluva magnificent with it really flush in line with the rear fender. Here let me show you a pic. I had to roll though the rubbing was merely with the side wall and that was only on bumps.

Always loved your whip, very, very nice. At the time you bought your NEEZ, there was no E92 rear specific offset available for the Eurocross 7Model (aka QD7). So, there was no deception / fraud involved. Logically, Eisenhaus offered you the E90/1 offset and you took it, knowing what it might entail from reading the forums, e.g. rubbing, etc.

I have seriously explored different options for wheels. I read about all the issues with the original M6 reps rubbing in the E92 and how the E92 rear fender wells are slightly narrower than the E90's, causing the rubbing. I contemplated whether to take the E90 specific offset from Eisenhaus, but I decided not to, because:

a. they were not being honest about the offset of the wheels
b. I cannot deal with even occasional rubbing
c. I don't want to roll the fenders unnecessarily

This is really a matter of principle, not a matter of whether of the +25 will work on the E92 or not. NEEZ Japan made the specific +35 offset for the E92, Eisenhaus / NEEZ USA denied the existence of such wheels, which is in full display in NEEZ Japan's website. In my books, that's highly questionable business practice. Also, they claim to be able to get you different finishes that are not offered by NEEZ Japan. Where are they getting these finishes? Probably not directly from NEEZ Japan.

Here in Boston, there are a lot of bumps, potholes, uneven road surfaces, etc. I really don't want to deal with the possibility of a tire blowing up from chronic rubbing..... Honestly, if the rear wheels sitting 10mm closer to the edge of the fender well will prevent it from rubbing, it's well worth not having it 100% flushed with the fenders. Just my humble opinion, no offense intended, and yes, I'm a wimp

With shipping, insurance, and a set of BMW wheel caps included, it's only four dollars more than the price offered by a vendor here from Eisenhaus for the wrong offset. The actual transit time from Japan was four days only. They shipped the wheels out by EMS Express Mail on Tuesday and I got them on Friday.

I am suspicious of NEEZUSA too, even though I am a customer
but hey. look, you guys mentioned the finishes NEEZUSA offered were not offered on NEEZ JP and how NEEZ JP only offer the hypersilver, hyperblack, and blackpolish
then why does NEEZ JP use NEEZ USA's 3D Super Buff finished wheel for example shots on their INTERNATIONAL WEBSITE.
http://neezinternational.com/product03.html



The NEEZ INTERNATIONAL is direct link from http://www.neez.co.jp/ (click shopping, it takes you to NEEZ INTERNATIONAL)
This makes me feel a bit more secured about NEEZUSA but Eienhaus is fishy no matter what.

I highly doubt NEEZUSA is fake...

and a few shops get them from them too so, I don't know.
