Question 19" replica wheels source? Where do you guys shop?

My 08 M3 sedan is on stock 18" wheels at the moment. I'd like to purchase a set of OEM 19s.



I got a quote from the dealer for brand new 19s with tires: 6850$ cad + txs!!

That's not gonna happen... pretty ridiculous when you think of it...

So I'm looking for 19" replica wheels but they are almost impossible to find in the correct "OEM" offset and width.... (8.5 ET29 font and 9.5 ET23 rear)

I can live with 8.5 / offset 25-32 at the front. And I can also live with a 9.5 ET18 to 26 at the back.

Any suggestion on where to find some???

If you'd like OEM instead of replicas we can do $1300USD+ shipping. All of our wheels are OEM wheels, refinished to like new and guaranteed to balance and roll straight.

Yours might be great as I never seen them.

But I actually never seen a refinished wheel look as good as an OEM. The finish on an OEM wheel is always very very fine. The can't really see any metal flake. On a refinished wheel, the metal flake that makes the wheeld pop always looks like car paint with a much bigger and visible "flake" whch doesn't look as good.

Maybe you guys have a better finish, you can tell me or show me with high res pics.
