Wheel Offer...Good deal? Buy?

I've been looking at VMR 710/718s, AG M3310/359, and Alzors as wheel options for my '10 335i E90 LCI and just now came across this offer on **********s:

http://www.**********s.com/sale-spor...ken-fk-435.htm

What is everyone's thoughts on these wheels in comparison to the ones mentioned above? Weight comparison? The tires offered aren't bad either so I'm fine with those..I just didnt have much knowledge on this wheel brand and I'm not sure yet when the offer expires.

Thanks for the feedback!

Update: The link wasn't working so go to the Mod Bargains homepage and select "Bargain of the Week" at the top. The referred wheels are tires are "Sportline CS.16 CSL Style Wheels 19x8.5, 19x9.5+ Falken FK-453 Tires- for BMW E36/E46/E9X/Z3/Z4"

The link is not working because mod bargains was banned from bimmerpost.

But to answer your question sportlines are great wheels. Flow formed, lightweight and strong. Only real downfalls to these wheels are they only come in Silver and their CSL design is not quiet as sharp looking as other CSL reps out there.

If you have any more question about some wheels and tires for your car don't hesitate to ask

Thanks for the feedback and strange about **********s! What's different about these CSL reps to other brands?

The only other concern I have on this deal is the offsets (mainly rear) and how this will look. The dimensions of the available wheels are below and I know the rears should be closer to a 35 offset...I don't really want to have to go and buy spacers either. Thanks again!

Front:
Diameter: 19"
Width: 8.5"
Offset: et35

Rear:
Diameter: 19"
Width: 9.5"
Offset: et45

The link will work if you replace the stars with mod bargain after you open the link. Without the space.

I have seen just about every CSL rep in person and it's hard to describe. The sportlines are powdercoated instead of painted which is a plus however, their silver isn't as vibrant as others and the spokes are not as clean cut. If that makes any sense If you are buying wheels for performance I say go for the sportlines but if you are going for looks then I would go another route.

I see you have an E90 LCI. A 45 offset rear would work. The LCIs run less aggressive offsets in the rear. If you decide to go another route I would be happy to work out a great price for you on some AGs

see information like this needs to be known. I see that a Vendor is banned from a website and that looks like really really bad business, But maybes theres more behind it? Cant judge a book by its cover?

any who ive been doing research and just read over in the Z4 forum that **********s is sold out of the Sportline CS.16 and they dont expect another shipment discontinued? I really wanted the looks of the CSL with the weight reduction of flow formed wheels.

Not a big fan of that circle near the hub in the apexx arc-8

Have you looked at Forgestar F14's or Alufelgen SF-71's? The Forgestars are priceier and the Alufelgen's are low pressure cast but they are similar styles.

Or even the TSW Nurburgrings. I have run them in the past and are a great wheel similar to that style. They are light weight, strong, affordable and flow formed
