weight of 19" CSL reps vs OEM?

Also will the OEMs fit a 2004 330ci?
Thanks!

Depends on which OEM wheel, but mine weigh just under 25pds for the rears which are 9.5 wide, and yes they will fit your car.

Opps I read your post wrong, the OEMs CSL's which are really hard to get are definitely lighter then the Reps because they are forged. Also the OEMs are going to have a very aggressive rear offset, they will fit but you are going to run into all kinds of rubbing problems in the rear.

If you want ones that are forged and light like the OEM CSLs but with the correct offset I believe Umnitza is selling them.

good question....i dont see why not tho, if you are buying the CSL reps for non-M's the offset of the wheels and everything else should be good to go, they should fit without a problem

OEM CSL wheels are Spun-Cast, not Forged... same for the ZCP wheels.
Fronts would fit a 3er, but the rears would not be a good choice.
I have known peeps that ran 4 fronts with good results.

I will have to check on this to make sure but I am pretty sure that the OEM CSL's (the ones you need the vin to buy) are not the same as the ZCP wheels. They look the same but I am pretty sure they are not the same. You could be right but its not what I have heard. I will look into it deeper.
