I love my CSL's. I've had them for a year now and they've already been on two bimmers. Nice to hear they hold up to some abuse.

And sig

ive had these wheels for about 2 years and they have held up unbelievably well.. ive hit potholes a couple of times, e.g. about 2 weeks ago i was driving along and hit a huge long cut out in the middle of the road, didnt even see it coming (i.e. no road works signs).. my instant reaction was that the front wheels were definately bent due to the speed and the impact but no damage whatsoever, not even a crack.. these wheels are great value for money, and modbargains is the only place to purchase these baby's .. it was the first mod i ever did and have never regretted them, believe me you wont be dissapointed!

Thanks! Glad to hear that they held up for you on the road construction also!

gota vouch for these wheels, definitely good stuff.

these wheels have held up against all potholes (30+mph) and speedbumps like champs. someone did their hw on these wheels!

i had a flat and driven on it for awhile under low speeds and still the wheel was not bent. On my second set of tires now, same wheels, looks like new.


originally i got them from peter at velocity, but hes retired to a island resort by now. def reccomend Modbargains

Another great review And picturing peter on an island sipping on a pina colada or something just cracks me up

I had mine for about 18 months and sold them only after I curbed them. They are definitely a quality product well worth the $$$ you pay.

My only complaint is that the finish wasn't perfect like an OEM wheel. With that said, I only caught 4 extremely small blemishes when I was waxing the wheels. Oh yeah, they are a b1atch to clean.

I would recommend these to anyone and I'll probably go with some Hyper Black 19's in the future.

I want the hyper black one, sweet rims.
Driving in NYC is a *****. I don't know how the roads are in orange county, but in the city everywhere you go is like a land mine.

If you have the time. Take them off and clean properly then wax. I use wheel wax 2 times per yr. Now it takes about 3mins per wheel for a complete clean.

I used wheel wax and it didn't seem to help me. I got a foam swab from Griot's garage which made cleaning them a lot faster.

I use both wheel wax and the foam swab cleaner

Thanks for the recommendation on that one man it really has helped me out. Now that I have the axxis deluxe plus brake pads though, cleaning is a LOT easier.

No prob...but my fingers still get sore.

I'm still on my original set of OEM pads (65k miles). When I do change out my pads, definitely going low dust.
