Mein Auto: 2009 X5 35d
Anyone bought style 214 rep wheels through Discount Tire?

I'm looking to upgrade my 18" oem wheels on my 2009 35d to the 20" style 214. I can get reps through my local Discount Tire for $335 each. Discount says they are an "exact" rep with the exact same paint and finish as the oem (plus a lifetime finish warranty). Anyone bought these reps from Discount? Would love to go oem, but would cost an extra $1000 or so. Thanks!

Prolly twice the weight of OE.

Remember, "reps" (or shall we say "cheap Asian knockoffs") will not have the quality of OE. Quality when it comes to wheels can be tangible.

Find out who really makes the wheel (ie the manufacturer) and see if they have a reputation.

Finally, assume everything the salesman SAYS is a lie- 'exact same paint' and on down the line. Believe it if it is in writing.
