Cheaper alt?

Been looking to refresh the look with some new wheels. Currently rolling on oem 195s. After a little researching I found that I really like the style of the 19" BC Forged HB27 and HB09. Also found that they're 4k a set, I know that they're custom forged, thus the price. However, I don't want to spend more than 2k. Any ideas? It would be great if i could get a set for $1500 or less. Thanks.

Yea, haven't found anything yet, thus the reason for the post. I'm not familiar with all the different manufacturers and styles.

Style is all personal taste. I myself prefer ForgeStar, they're fucking awesome! Pricey, but worth it in looks and performance.

If you want to stick to BMW tires don't go through the dealer...I went through discount tire last fall to pick up some 193m wheels. They're OEM, not replica. They called around for me and found a good price and I ended up saving about 50%

Thanks for the suggestion, googled them but I'm not really a fan of the Linea Corse wheels.

Does ForgeStar only make 6 styles? The F14 doesn't look too bad but it seems like everybody has a similar type. I'm trying to find something like this. Link.

That's awesome! However, all the BMW style wheels that I'm interested in are all 20s. I'm lowered on V1s and I'm not looking to roll my fenders.
