Your Awesome Opinions

Hi guys, I really need your help here! I want to replace my cracking (mind the pub) MV4 alloys for ones that don't crack going over chalk lines!

I fancy matt black 19" VMR710 replicas or 19" 313 style wheels with black machine faced wheels from CMWheels!

Has there been any issues with these wheels cracking and out the 2 which would you put on a white E92?

All input welcome!

I can only recall paint peeling issue for VMR.

Bottom line is they are your typical gravity cast wheels, weighing in around 28lbs to 30lbs each, what you pay is what you get.

Does that mean they have a good chance of cracking :-(! Seriously thinking of trading this bucket in after Christmas. I had an Astra VXR with 19's before this and never had an issue. Thought BMW was a step up in class!

It is not the car it is the shitty wheels you have, buy a nice 3 piece rim and see if you have problems with cracking

If you drive them hard enough (hitting big potholes or track them intensively), any wheels can crack ... just matter of the cheaper ones will crack more easily than say a hi end wheels, like forged.
