I cannot decide. I want to upgrade to 18" wheels and I have my heart set on //M-Parallels. However, OEMs are twice as expensive as replicas. Some days I love replicas and other days I hate them.

Many have that "machined" look that does not resemble OEM at all. I have even thought about replicas and powder coating or painting them silver. It would still be cheaper than OEM.

So, help me out here guys. What do you think?

I struggled with the same quesiton. After asking around and doing some research i went with oem as painful the cost was. Reason of safety. Heard horror stories of replica failures and with having my kids in the car it came down to simple decision.
