haters are gonna hate. it's not that you can buy the real deal. it's all about satisfying yourself and being practical. as long as your happy with your ride, then that's all that matters.

My Ride: is better than yours
The finish on the ESR-4s look really off. Seem really dull too me. I'm going to go with Varrstoen when they release their 8.5/9.5 line. 10.5 is too wide and will rub. If I was going with the stretched look I would opt for the 10.5s....

^ i agree, the finish does look dull on the ESR's. im also most likely going with Varrstoen when they are back in stock, they also have the deepest lip

What do you all think of the Miro Type 279s?

http://www.modbargains.com/_e/E46_Wh..._BMW_5x120.htm

Cheaper, lip wont be as much as others, Lowest offset is ET-20. Can get ET-35 all around.

miro lm reps look NOTHING like lm's, or even lm reps. Ugly.

I like esr-4, varrstoen, linea corse. I have the LC, but thats because they fell into my hands pretty much, if i bought them again, i might do esr-4

But it's suddenly ok if you put real BBS center caps and stickers on them.

I do know that the bolts on the BB5 LM replicas wheels just kinda fall out over time(no worry since they aren't structural) and bits of the wheel chip off if you curb them.

Either way u cant go wrong with esr-4 or varrstoen and maybe Lc. just my 2 cents. About the guy who was talking some bad stuff regarding lm reps, i believe all of us here can buy the real bbs ones but being practical in life is the way to go. 1 real bbs wheel = 4 rep wheels.

btw guys, quick question about the center caps for lm reps. are they 68mm x 62mm? need help, thanks!

My Ride: ss
man Ive been googling all the brands for days now and Can't seem to make a decision. theres so many, but the sizes I want and finish just doesnt seem to happen..

Im looking for 19x10 or wider.. if not 19x9.5 is fine. Hyper silver with polished lip. Seems a few vendors only have staggered and some are really pricey at least in comparison to other brands which makes deciding difficult.


ANyone have any comments on Aspec from ebay? is there another name/tag for the wheels they have?

Where is there a Vendor for the Varrstoen wheels?
