Quick question

Somebody is selling factory 19 inch wheels for the E9X M3 stating that they are forged...The factory wheels are cast, right?

The 19" wheels are forged. The 18" wheels are cast.

The 19" are forged and very light. You will have to be in the HRE P40 /BBS LM world to buy comparable aftermarket wheels.

The stock rubber is great! The PS2 grip like hell and outperform almost every tire out there. The down side is that they only last between 7k and 12k miles.

You can't go wrong with this purchase. At least in terms of quality and performance.

Most of oem/aftermarket detail wheel info are in the sticky.
Before you ask those very basic questions, search first next time.

Of course I can type "yes- it's forged" for you but I don't want to see another stupid question like this from you again so I wasted my time to tell you so no one has to deal with it again.
