I had a set of M6 replicas for a while. I had them balanced 5 times and could never get rid of a little shimmy at 65 MPH.

Not to mention m6 reps are more prone to bends.

It's not that replicas are uniformly bad, it's just that you can't tell - especially when buying them second hand. What I can say is that, generally, established reputable wheel manufacturers don't build replicas. Since it's essentially a design copyright infringement, the companies making them tend to be smaller, have dramatically less quality control in their processes, and produce inconsistent products. I am sure people have found replica sets with absolutely no issues.

I think that's too much money for a set of replicas anyway. If you look here and over on www.5seriesforums.com, you're going to find someone selling OEM 167s (M6 wheels) for not too much more than that.

It does seem kind of expensive. Check out www.oemwheelsplus.com they have some black m6 reps......im thinking about buying some m5 reps from there.

I have a set of M6 replica 19's on my 645 and I really wish I didnt buy them second hand.
Someone else above mentioned that you just dont know what your getting and I couldnt agree more. From my experience with these rep's, Ill NEVER buy used rims again.

One was bent and cracked... and the other 3 were slightly bent. Theyr made of lesser quality materials so they bend easier. Theyll never be perfectly true and straight until I replace em with brand new ones!

Theres enough dealers out there that you should be able to get a decent price on rep's anyway.

Good luck!

I meant to include... If he's local, have him meet you at a local tire shop and have them balanced right there before you buy them.
The balance of all 4 should be somewhere around $40 bucks.
