What do people think about TSW wheels

I might be going with a set in 19's on my AW E92. But not sure if they are right for a BMW. I am thinking Breytons or some CSL's would be more appropriate.

Plus the face on the TSW's I like is blaack with a chrome/polished lip. My interior is saddle brown, Would that look good,

People with AW E92's with the saddle brown interior post some pics of your rides with rims.

I don't know if they improved on the quality in recent years but I had a pair of 18's on an Acura about 5 years ago and I cracked two of them. They also were a bit unstable at higher speeds, the steering wheel got shaky above 75mph. They are not the best quality. I am not sure about Breytons but at least they are made specifically for BMW. If the CSL's are replica's then they are most likely cheap and not made that well. I know wheels can get expensive but it's worth the money to invest in a set that is made well. I have style 230 OEM wheels that are made by BBS like many BMW wheels. Why don't you check out Tischer's website, they have plenty of BMW 19's that are reasonably priced? Good Luck!

the shakeyness is nothing to do with the wheels. It is the tires and whether they are balanced and aligned. TSW wheels are one of the top producers of cast wheels. They make a solid wheels and have become alot more of a quality orientated company. There are videos on the internet that show there construction process and what makes them superior from other wheels that are in the same price range. I am considering TSW's too.

I had TSW Volcanoes on my Acura TSX and they were solid! I would drive thru railroad tracks, potholes and somehow...somehow...I never bent them. That told me that they made some quality rims. I am considering them as well. You can see my car on www.wheelsdirectonline.com in the Customer Rides section.

I've had 3 sets of TSW-made wheels over the years; 19" TSW Exclusive, 19" Beyern Type 5, & 20" Mandrus Regenmeister. (FYI Beyern are made specifically for BMW.)

They're some of the strongest wheels I've had, I've hit potholes with my 19" Beyerns that I was convinced would have caused damage and nothing ever came of it, this compared to my previous set of spun-rim wheels that I bent 3 of within a 1 month period.
