Hi everyone, I'm looking for a set of OEM 128's for an 06 750li. Any suggestions on the best place to shop for these? I'm looking for new, or good condition take-offs.

Thanks!

Tires as well. Where is a good place to buy them? I don't see anything decent cheaper than ~$400 per piece. Thanx. DC7.

+1 on the WAC set. They make a great case for replicas. I own a set. I've heard they're better than OEM, but can't substantiate that. You can't beat the price, and the quality is, IMO, as good as OEM.

WAC is the place to go. I can substantiate OEM vs. Reps as I have bent OEM's on similar potholes where the reps were rock solid. Of course I have no scientific evidence, just a ton more cash in my wallet on going WAC Rep vs. OEM.

I noticed on WAC that they don't come with the center caps or lugs. Any suggestions for a good spot?

They come with the caps but not the logo stickers which you can get from the stealer cheap, or transfer the old ones to the new rims...

Do you need spacers with the WAC wheels?

I have the WAC 128 21s. I have to say, I haven't bent one yet and I live in Chicago, pot hole capital of the f-cking country. I just bought caps from ebay to tell the truth, they fit perfect and were cheap. As for spacers, check my posts. I started with 20mm on the rear, looked mean and loved it. But they rubbed with every little tiny dip in the road. Switched to 15mm spacers, again, rubbing, almost as bad as on the 20mm spacers. then I made a mistake and got 5mm (for some reason I thought I had 10mm on the rear) and truthfully, there is NO rubbing at all and they look fine to me. I might step back up to 10s to see if they rub. As for the fronts, I have 15mm spacers, I think. And they don't look lopsided as compared to the rears. Both front and rear look like they are about even with the fender line. Other people are running 20mm spacers on the rear with no fender rolling and no rubbing, but I think with the WAC 128s, you have to be more careful, they must be wider.

That having been said, I swear I saw a set of 128s on ebay for under $2000 (OEM) the other day, but they might have been chrome.

Just checked, didn't seem em on ebay now. Might have been mistaken. Looks like they're about $3500. WAC ran be under $1000 for the wheels and I put Hankooks on em (don't buy Hankooks! They slip on dry pavement!)
