New Modulare Forged Wheel Design

Guys,

What do you think of these new 3 piece forged wheels. My friend just got some for his 7 series and M3. Give me your opinions. They come in the same finishes as HRE, Iforged, etc... I think im going to get some.

They did some special machining to actually make them as light as HRE's even with the triangles. The best part is that you dont have to get them with the triangles, making them superlight. I think they'd look alot better in silver w/ polish lip or black center. They have some other designs coming out that are more traditional which look sick too. Gotta see if I can find some pics somewhere.

The website address is www.modularewheels.com Go there and send them an email. They said there website will be fully up and running in a week or two. They are running introductory prices right now anywhere from $850 - $1250 per wheel depending on the size. You can get any size + finish you want as well.
