M5 rims question

Hey everyone, I have a 2007 bmw 5 series that came with stock 18 inch rims and they are selling me m5 replica rims for 1000 ... What's your advice ? Can anyone tell the difference just by looking at the rims and will the rims affect my car ??? Thanks !!

I have M5 reps on my xi (because otherwise they'd be unavailable to me) and LOVE them! I guess it depends on the quality of yours, but I'd go for it if that's the look you want.

Do they rub at all? What size tires do you have on them? Thanks in advance.

The wheel set Jay Arras has now is M5, style 166. I have the same set like that but OEM cost me about $1800. On Ebay sell them from $1800 to $2400.

Look in the classifieds here, m5board.com and 5series.net. I got a brand new OEM set of M6 rims for $1500 shipped. You just have to be patient.

Actually, they're 18's, square setup, no rubbing.
