Would you buy these wheels?

Would you buy these style 68 wheels from The Wheel Exchange? The price is really good.

Replicas and they look nice.

But you can get the real deal for the same price if not a little more on this forum if you don't mind used. Replicas are just as heavy as their OEM equivalent but often not as strong. Relatively speaking, the OEM wheels are pretty damn tough.

As I say, metal is metal, so the only thing that really matters when it comes to buying used wheels is the finish (paint and curb rash).

I think that kind of design makes it look smaller than it is.

This I agree with. It's because of the thick lip. My friend and I were were bumming around the local BMW dealership at midnight and we were looking at a row of cars equipped with the M68 and he was surprised as how small they look compared to the style 44 wheels on another nearby coupe.

I sold mine for 800 with no rash and a good amount of thread left on this forum. Go to the wheels section.
