I would have thought that m-pars weighed less than 32 lbs (stated in the ad). I also wonder where a non-staggered set would come from. Makes me wonder if they're really good knockoffs.

some people, want to rotate the wheels so they put non staggered wheels, because they think they are smarter than Bmw engineers. They are not:eek: I would also say unless those wheels are stamped Bmw they are also reps...You can get reps non staggered, Orig wjheels you would have to buy 4 front wheels..... which is unlikely

Very true.
Went to a dealer a couple days ago to check out a 2002 540i sport.
Everything looked great except the wheels. The prior owner put on non-staggered 530 wheels. So right then and there, its another $1,000+ dollars cost to put the correct wheels on it. Very disappointing. But it was a nice car otherwise.

The p/n on the one picture makes a pretty convincing rep, but reps was my original feeling as well, especially if they actually are 32 lbs. Then they're definitely reps - and heavy ones.

Who cares about staggered or not? I dont' see what the big deal is.
