Had a seriously bad experience with the Miro type 279s. DO NOT RECOMMEND. Those rims are softer than the last turd I dropped into the toilet.

Lol ^ ive seen miros look real good, and theyre much lighter than most reps, but yes within a week or two of buying them you they will bend easily if you dont watch the roads at all times.

Yeah looks aren't the problem, just the fact that they're made of tinfoil. They look real nice sitting in my basement wearing high-performance rubber while my aggressive car rolls around on OEM 16s since I can't afford new rims. Life SUCKS!

It's funny most people say the miro's are crap and they bend real easily ect... I've had them for over a year now and no problems at all. My ONLY complaint about them is the finish isnt too good, and they can ship if not properly cared for. I had one of my friends putting my wheel back on and he didn't seem to care and put a nice chip on my one wheel with a lug stud/wrench. Other than that freakish event, they're great wheels. They can handle the brutal streets of south jersey and not have a problem. I would also recommend Mod Bargains, they're $900 shipped.

looks ok in pictures, but looks super awkward in person...you might wanna reconsider

It's hard to explain but it's a major detail

If I didn't explain well enough let me know and I'll do a quick chop letting you know exactly what i'm talking about

I'm mainly referring to the third picture you posted.
Does this look awkward?



It all depends on the PCD of the vehicle's bolt pattern. If you have 5x100 then the holes wouldnt "spill" out to the mesh. LC's have a smaller mesh area thus making the PCD on BMWs flushed. I hope I didnt confuse anyone.

Keep in mind that with any wheel especially reps with big lips....you are more susceptible to bending the outer lip when you hit a decent size pothole. Ask me how i know....

any wheel on a decent size pothole at a average rate of speed will bend a large lip.
