E89 Aftermarket Rims

Anyone using an aftermarket rim that they like? I bought my 2011 Z4 used and in 18 months, I have cracked three rims. Either the OEM rims are very brittle or they were not made for normal roads. I have bought two new rims, but after just cracking the third, I am wondering if it is time to find something better aftermarket.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

David

From what I've read, this is a common problem with Z4 OEM rims. Not sure about years affected but have read many threads on this. I'd go aftermarket.

This is not a problem with OE rims. Just the 296 style. this might be the rim the OP has.
There was a class action lawsuit several years back due to cracking. BMW subsequently redesigned the rim to make it beefier. Plenty of aftermarket rim suppliers out there. Avant garde, Beyern, BBS come to mind.
