Yeah, I keep on flittering between to be honest.
The main pro for the 220’s that are on there currently is the fact that they are forged.
The main issue with the above is that the genuine wheels are 1) about £2k used and 2) rare to come up for sale.
Lots of the guys on Cutter run reps, as they are identical to OEM including offset. But they’re heavier than the forged 220’s that are currently on.
Have a look at Apex EC7. In 18 x 10…..and some chunky rubber.
I think they look a nice blend of “race / OEM” but slightly different to the M359 ones.
Karbonius if you want power, Evolve if you want residuals and Carbon Klasse if you want value for money.
If you want competition wheel replicas go CM Wheel high offset sidings in bright silver.
A lot of love for E9X M3’s, I’ll have another at some point - probably not as lairy as my last one though!
Yes I can definitely relate to the excuses to go for a drive...they certainly get under your skin. Plenum wise @-Rob makes some great points. For me it would be mine or Carbon Klasse as I prefer the look at the fact the retain the lower OEM sections.@BoostedSi I’ve recently gone over yours and @Strell’s threads recently and sold myself on a plenum. Doing some research on which one now. Yours looks epic btw mate, such a great colour.
I’m torn with comp wheels, genuinely!
I can’t believe it took me this long to buy one. I keep on finding excuses to just go for a drive, I’ve never had this with a car.
I’m also trying to get used to the throttle response coming from a turbo’d car, it’s pretty savage
You can't even fit some of the CM wheels over a BBK, worse clearance than stock wheels lol. Granted Luke probably isn't going to chuck a big AP kit onAnyone done some actual weighing of cm stuff vs bmw stuff etc?
BMW wheels are utter dogshit in terms of quality anyway, so surely other than weight, reps can’t be too bad?
So is that a no? Just a bunch of people reporting ‘pig iron’ or similar?You can't even fit some of the CM wheels over a BBK, worse clearance than stock wheels lol. Granted Luke probably isn't going to chuck a big AP kit on
They are heavier than the stock 260M wheels I had on mine. Was Gonna get a set of the ARC8 copies til I found out they weigh more and don't even clear the brakesSo is that a no? Just a bunch of people reporting ‘pig iron’ or similar?
The fact is that reps are being made somewhere, that somewhere will have manufacturing standards/processes... unless they’re being made with no QC, then that’s another matter, but other than unsprung weight difference, reps are probably perfectly serviceable
