If you read his post, it sounded just like a minor sratch inside the lug bolt area. ever think this could happen during shipping?

Personally I have iForged wheels, and will continue to order from them, because my friends and I all had perfect results. So there really isnt anyone that can change my mind. I have them on my car and so do my pals and there just amazing. this is my opinion

Its like anything, just have to take care of it. Coat of wax once in a while. Plus if anything happens, unbolt the center, re chrome etc.. The benefits far outweigh the negatives in my opinion

Thanks a lot for all your feedback. Since I live in Switzerland I think it’s better to purchase Work wheels. It’s just too risky to buy rims with potentially bad machining. It would take month to send the wheels back to iForged to repair them I case of problems with the rims.

I’m not sure if I should go with the standard gold finish or if I should ask for a custom gold finish.
Does anyone of you have a picture of the Work standard gold finish? Maybe a close-up view of the VS-XX wheel with gold finish? This would help me a lot.

Thx

check out this thread: http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=98782. i don't think monaco blue goes good with the gold though.

i have seen vs-xx's on a white e30 and that looked really nice imho. here's a pic i took:

You would see it installed because the bolt pretty hard to see when installed. Would you send it back or just get some touch up pain. Its about 10x 2 mm
with personal experience.... it'll take you a long time to get your wheels back...

Work VS-XX wheels are complete sickness........especially with a gold center. These are my dream wheels for the 335.

+1. considering what you are interested, volk might be another good choice
cant go wrong with any of those though, good luck!
