Help with rims

Hey guys, found these 2 sets of rims on ebay, I wanna keep my tires and just swap out the rims. I was wondering if anyones gotten rims from ebay or these in particular... they seem really cheap and I don't wanna buy em if people have had bad experiences... I only drive about 5000 miles a year very short trips and not on any rough roads. Any advice would be great. Also, have the tire package thru BMW for another year and a half, will this affect it at all? Thanks for the help!!

Wow that's cheap I honestly wouldn't trust any rim that cheap IMO. But if your set on it what are the specs exactly for the ones you are looking at?

Probably a skip. Replicas can be questionable sometimes. Sketchy eBay replicas are questionable. That's double questionable
