buying cheap M6 rims

hi,first an introduction as this is my first post.
im kenny from belgium,i used to drive a 320 E46 and now i have a 318 E90

after looking for the m6 rims for quite a while,i found this on the internet.
http://auto-onderdelen.marktplaats.n...e-e90-e46.html

these look so nice so i contacted the seller,he told he had a few sets
he said for my car,18" en will have an offset of 35

but the thing that bothers me,the price
for the 4 rims together it is 450€ (306dollar calculated)
wich is really cheap and im having doubts about the quality regarding the price

what is your opinion?
looks like a good deal or not?

Ask about weight and TUV or other certifications.

That link says 500 Euros, which is at the low end of our pricing in $ but not unheard of. Keep asking questions until you are satisfied or convinced they aren't worth the risk.

TUV is a German engineering and testing firm. I've worked with them here in Detroit on some of my programs. I don't have as glowing of an opinion as others.

yes,the link says 500€ but in email contact the seller said it was 450€.
other people easily ask 130€ per rim around here,so the diffrence is big
guess i will have to see it for myself
anyway of recognising bad rims on sight?

thnx for the response

Don't buy cheap reps! Buy only ones with TÜV certificate. For example, from this company (http://www.wspitaly.com/catalogo-prodotti.html) - I have personally bought from them and was very happy for 5 years.

Other option is to buy used BMW rims which are always going to be high quality (but careful with Style 225M and Style 230, both in 19in, which have been known to crack on inner barrel - at least in UK - when equipped with runflats). Check used wheels in classifieds or I found this source which is good and seller replies within a day to any question. www.bmautosports.co.uk -- they are UK but will ship to you for like 40-70 EUR which is totally OK. I see there 18-19 OEM wheels for about 1000 EUR.
