The "other value" is that you cannot get certain fitments from the major manufacturers. Specifically, these types of custom wheels are great, only?, options for SUV/SAV/etc. market. The big dogs only make up to 20s right now (BBS, Work, Volk, etc.). BMW proper does make a couple of sets of 21s.

But a *basic* 5 spoke monoblock wheel is going to be damn strong and fairly light really. Just as an example of why one might still choose these for say an M3.
