Wheel brands worthy & no-no's for 5 Series?

Help! School me! I'm listing these high to lower quality/rep in my newbie opinion:

I'm going for the deep concave look and open to forged or form flow, but not cast. Which wheels will my wheel snob friends approve of?

I think you'll find that it's primarily based on opinion. I could list my personal opinion based on responses back from customers, personal experience and so forth, but I think you'd rather just know the top of the top. HRE is for sure #1 in my book followed by BBS and Forgeline and ADV.1. I've heard great things about RAC but compared to the previous 4 companies they're a significantly smaller company. Vossen, Stance and Niche both make mostly cast but now followed by some flow formed or forged wheels while HRE/BBS/Forgeline and ADV.1 primarily manufacturer fully forged wheels which are truly going to be stronger, lighter and take significantly more abuse.

Get in touch if you have any questions, but seems like you need some help narrowing down the options, get in touch if you need any help with all that!

Vossen is one of the few companies that make their forged wheels in their own TUV verified facility. We offer low pressure cast, flow form technology and our premium Vossen Forged line. Here are some ideas for you, good luck with your decision.

Here is a modified 5 sport on our flow formed VFS-1 wheels'

As for our Vossen Forged line, we are still putting our new gallery together but here are various M4's with them.

You can read more here on the mini-site as well.
