Looking at getting a new set of 17" or 18" rims for my 2001 330I. Looking at Tire Rack of course but also considering replica rims off of ebay. What are the pros and cons of replica rims? Anything I should watch out for? Should I just take the safe route and purchase from Tire Rack? Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Would you rather drive this car:



or the real thing?



'Nuff said.

Ever watch the movie "Snatch", when Bullet Tooth Tony pulls out the .44 Desert Eagle on the three idiot robbers with Replicas?

'Nuff said.

Replicas can be fine, or they can be heavier and/or weaker.

Hard to say.

What are you looking for? If looks only, replicas are fine. If performance, replicas may not be the way to go.
