Oh ok, So they probably are legit? I saw some other LM reps that looks a little more clean. These sort of look...weird...like they are thicker.

Will 18x9 ET20 fit a 2003 330i? Depends on tire size I assume? What should I go for without rolling fenders or anything of the sort.

I have done a little reserach, found nothing for sure, but all clues lead to "no"

Yeah, I've been watching the classifieds for a few weeks now. I am not dead set on reps. Just saw the deal and maybe wanted to take advantage of it.
What wheels do you have on in your sig?

yeah those dont really look that great. here are my lm reps that i picked up in 19x8.5 front and 19x9.5 rear


my centercaps are real though just not the rims




Majority of the time people think they are real. even some people that have real ones think they are... sadly they arnt but one day i will have real ones when i get back from japan till then these are my beater rims since she'll be staying with the family while im away(military life) and only god knows how many curbs they might hit D:

Those look really Nice!


Japan you say?
Are they cheaper in Japan?
I am working on swapping orders with a guy in Japan! Hoping it goes through, if it does, my wheels won't really matter that much.

Your original wheels look a hundred times classier than any of these stanceworks wannabe bullshit wheels.

Do you know the offset for those. The ones I'm looking at at 18x9 et20. He says they aren't normally et20's

To me, they look an awful lot like ESM-004's, not Miros. It is hard to tell from the pics, but the finish on the Miro's seems to be better in most of their pics. There is something off on the finish of the ESM's. But, hit the link, and decide for yourself. Click on the pic for the larger image to compare.
I was wondering why someone would lie about this, but the ESM's are a good bit cheaper.
Someone selling a bootleg of a bootleg. That would be interesting.
