**********s.com vs BMW

So, I stumbled onto **********s and found that they have a lot of replica wheels for a fraction of the price of BMW originals.

Are they as good as the real deal, or is there a sacrifice in structural integrity and weight?

Sure, but sometimes you pay for an authentic badge and nothing else... such is the price of "prestige".

As long as they are low pressure cast or better you shouldn't have any problems even with 19's. Which style are looking for exactly?

We produce many wheels that'll suit your BMW's as well. Many members of the forum are running VMR's and they can vouch for us We keep our wheels as close to OEM as possible while still sitting aggressive on your car. Right about the same weight and undergo JWL and VIA certifications that OEM wheels go through. PM me if you'd like a quote.
