Sorry to be the ass, but Axis and BMW do not mix. I have to admit that they did a fairly good job of copying yet another companies design, but still they are Axis, and still they are cast....Just my $.02

There are several other wheels in this price range from companies that design their own wheels, not copy others, and also build a wheel that will stay round.

Would you put dice on a BMW? If you answered no, then run from the Axis's

The SSR's are good, somewhat soft, but again the SSR's are in another league far above Axis.

I don't want to offend anyone. We have all purchased BMW's here, and should keep in mind that everyone has their own budgets for mods. Just trying to save someone from having trouble on down the road.

What an ignorant remark...

I have yet to hear of anyone running into problems with axises. They're great wheels for their price. As to them copying other peoples designs, take a look at the BBS LMs and the Work VS-XX, which one is the replica? Just because the axis wheels are less expensive doesn't mean they're cheap quality. Just because they're cast doesn't mean they're weak. ACS, Hamann, Breyton, Hartge, BBS, OZ, and many other manufacturers all make cast wheels. I don't know where you're getting your information, but inexpensive doesn't always equate into poor quality.

btw, just exactly what wheels from 'more reputable manufacturers' would you suggest? A full set of staggered supermeshes with tires will run you about 2500. A set of staggered gt3s with tires will run you about 1k more.

who cares if they are cast theyre still good wheels, I had BBS Ch's and ran into many potholes and havent had any problems. I like the axis supermesh design, fat lip and would sport them on my bimmer any day...
