place to buy new bmw rims Y spoke

I found www.autopartsshop.com claiming to have NEW 19" Y-spoke (open fork) rims for my x3. At a price of $200/each and since BMWUSA.com doesn't sell these wheels on their site, nor does Tirerack, I'm curious/nervous this is a scam. If it is, where can I find / buy new 19" rims with the Y spoke (open fork) on the Internet? I would prefer used but I can't seem to locate them anywhere. Thanks so much!

You can buy them brand new from BMW.

Find the part number here:

http://www.realoem.com/bmw/partgrp.d...id=49511&hg=36

And enter it on BMW of Silver Springs internet sales site:

http://www.trademotion.com/partlocat...72&catalogid=0

They are 100% legitimate.

For used parts try: http://www.car-part.com/

I found the part number and on the trademotion website style 150 (19x8.5) shows a price of $62 and other styles at avg $350. Why is that? are they really new or somehow is this style of cheaper quality?

Maybe a misprint or they are just highly discounted. I would shoot them an e-mail with the part number and see what they say. You cannot call them. They are email and internet only and are not the same as the dealership parts counter.

I've bought a bunch of stuff from them and they are very good to work with.
