I love the 269s, but I prefer the 19inch version of the 269. Why are you limited to 18 inches for the 269 in your choices?

I think they offer them in 18s only thats why.... Why reps? You can buy oem wheels on here for 800-1200 dollars. I sold a set for 1300 with tires oem

I was in the same boat a few month back. Price is what sold it for me. As well as soon as I called sonic tuning Jose picked up and made me buy something. Im ok with that. Only gripe is the BMW centers from my sport wheels didnt fit so they are still just blank. Im having them decaled soon though.

We should have included Sonic Tuning caps for you, if they are missing just PM me your order number and I will take care of it for you.

Jose Nice. I am working with Ray on this, although the one pictured on the website has a gunmetal finish and the picture you put up doesn't. I am looking for the gunmetal finish.

My pictures are in the 269 wheel thread. I like them a lot, I believe I made a wise purchase for the price and the attention from them.
