interesting...I tried to look for certifications and didn't see them. That's a big plus.

Why don't you get a CSL and Sportline side by side for comparisons like the other replicas? I am curious to see them directly next to each other.

The price is definitely good and they are lighter too.

I meant side by side like the other replicas. We all saw those other pics.

Just to see the wheels in the same lighting.

I don't have the OEM ZCP wheels here in the warehouse to do a comparison shot. I can take a comparison if a customer comes in with the OEM CSL wheels, but until then, the above pictures are the best that I can do for you at this point of time.

On my old E46 M I ran a set of wheels with the same spec as CSLs (19x8.5 ET44, 19x9.5 ET27) for a while with 255-35-19 front and 275-30-19 rear with zero rubbing issues. Also right now I'm free shipping genuine BMW CSL wheel sets , you can check them out HERE.
