ebay M3 replica's...

Well just bought a e90 325. want to get some nicer wheels/tires for it asap. with a limited budget i went to ebay and found some nice replica's....

but searching at all the boards no one runs them?? or i did not find any.

Is there anything wrong with these, besides being cheap??

Why not buy them from a vendor here? Contact Pat or Jose from Sonic tuning. I got a full set of rims for $400 brand new. They are in New York Im in Florida they got here in 3 days

I bought an M5 replica set from ebay ( http://www.ebay.com/itm/350515837071...84.m1423.l2649 ) and got them last week.
They are good quality, fit perfectly, they are lighter than stocks and look great I think... Would buy from them again...

Here are some pics

Here's the pic of the replicas installed. Installed last night so this is a early morning pic before work. So far really good quality, even had the installer ask if they were OEM because the quality build was great.

I purchased them on eBay from ASpec Wheels. Definitely recommended.

Be weary, wheel replicas in most cases are fine if you're going strictly for looks but be weary that if they do bend or break you'll know why
