Z4M: Best place to buy replacement wheel?

I need to replace my M Double Spoke 224 right front wheel that is out of round from a curb hit. I will take an OE remanufactured/refurbrished replacment if garanteed. Any recommendations on where to buy?

if your other 3 wheels are the OE wheels, i would replace the damaged fourth with an OE wheel. I.e. the dealership.

Have you checked to see if you have a wheel refurbishing company in town? We have a great one called wheel wizards here in Atlanta. They can take a damaged wheel and make it look new again.

Thanks for replies. My other 3 wheels are OE wheels but do not want to pay full pop if I dont have to. I will check out Curry's. I found this place on the web and was curious if anybody has used them?

These folks can probably repair it for half the cost of a new wheel

I hope somebody, someday will prove me wrong, but I've yet to see a refinished wheel that didn't look like a refinished wheel.

My recommendation is go for the dealer too.

I had one done on my wife's Touareg(a big 19"er) and it looked factory new when done. If the place knows what they are doing it will be perfect.

That's encouraging, but I've yet to see a Roadstar that matches OE finish (either 98-00 or 01-02).

Front. This ended up being the best choice. $375.63 with shipping. That's about $100 more than a refurbrished one but that choice had too many risks. Thanks Ron!

Well. Back to square one. I just got a note from North Haven, CT BMW saying they no longer ship out rims.

Here is Tischer's parts website

www.getbmwparts.com

and I noticed the new wheels are now made in Austria and have a small casting number on the outside,
I had a wheel replaced under warranty a few weeks back and the brand new rim that they had to order was different as mentioned above,

Same color and finish, Just made somewhere else with a casting number on it

(see here in this photo I found)



You see the number in between the spokes before where the M badge is, I think it says "13" my new rim has this on it,

did you get your OEM wheel? what option did you have to go with?

I too am in the market for a right front due to curb rash...

For about $800 you can order four new CSL style wheels, that match your OEM size and offset from VelocityMotoring.com. Several people on this board (myself included) are very happy with the VB3 style.

Most OE Style 224 wheels are manufactured by Superior Industries International (SII). http://www.supind.com/index.html
The one Starscream88 is referring to is made by Borbet in Austria.

Here is my experience with wheel replacement:

I got it from a local SF Bay Area dealer at 15% off list. I am glad I did not order from an online BMW dealer. The wheel came sealed in its original box. When I opened it I found no packing in the box. It was just sitting there in the box like a round peg in a square hole. There was nothing to cushion it from an outside hit. I can’t imagine what would have happened to it if it had been shipped further than it had already to get the dealer. No wonder North Haven, CT BMW said they no longer ship out rims…
