Replica 313 wheels should I?

Hi everyone need your thoughts, I have the option to buy some 19" replica 313's with good none run flats tyres Falkens I think but I am not sure. Are replica wheels any good? I currently have the standard 18" MV4's which i like but sometimes I think they are a little small lol , anyways some pics below with the replica wheel infront to give me an idea of what they'll look like on.

Thanks people
Rich

The wheels currently on the car are the 18" MV3's

313's, reps or not, will always look better than what you currently run,+ you'll get non run flat tyres,what is there to think about,get em bought (baught for da kidz ) & fitted

Don't think 313s suit the saloon/touring - but it's a personal choice...!

I agree ... the E92 they look great ... but to my eyes kind of out of place of the saloon or touring.

I had purchased a set of 313 reps & didn't like them... so I had to sell & get genuine ones!

You can tell the difference!

Get genuine, not replicas. As said you can tell the difference if you know what to look for.... They seem to sit wrong on the car.

Mine are genuine if you want to see them on a black saloon....

Thanks guys much appreciated still 50/50 might make a difference if I actually ask the bloke selling them if I can fit them to see what it looks like.
Not sure if I am being picky but the little recess for the m sport baged is bigger so the badge looks lost LOL picky I know but I can be particular as it needs to be right.

Just a thought would I need to get the speedo altered with the standard 18" rims running low profile anyway and seeing these are 19" and running the same profile apart from bigger staggered setup?

Thanks for the image Frobius

Ukbeemerboy do you have picture of yours?

313 looks even better with e90's since not alot of cars have them. it would really stand out!! looks really sporty on the touring!!

Heres my set, there black instead of grey though:


My opinion is they look better on the e92, and you need big discs to pull them off.

My experience is because of the polished finish the lacquer will peel.

My recommendation is to get CSL style wheels (or something different), which I have done and should be going on the car next week.

I can't stop looking at it. It's making me have bad thoughts.

I hate reps... Seem are very good but it is hit or miss.

Too many stories recently of cracked rims etc... Not worth it in my book.
BT if you are looking for cheap and cheerful it works.


Otherwise there are so many awesome second hand deals on genuine rims, you just have to be patient
