Replica 19's...

Has anyone gone this route yet? Wanted to do some powdercoating but don't want to spend the money on used oem 19's. Saw these replicas but can't find anyone who bought a set yet.

Why by OEM style? So many nice wheels on the market! Checkout WSTOS porn thread from Japan!

Not really looking to spend $2500+ on wheels. Chances are i'm just going to powdercoat my 18's. Just figured for the price i would see if anyone tryed them. Wondering if they are basically the same quality as the rep M6 wheels.

These E9X M3 Style Wheels are manufactured to meet the highest performance, quality, and safety standards in the industry. The wheel passes JWL and VIA standards to ensure the highest level of safety and quality just like our M6 wheels. Let me know if you need any assistance

If they're not forged, like the 19" stockers, they're going to weigh A LOT more man. Plus if identical in dimensions, are not going to be as strong.
Just powdercoat your stockers; that's exactly what I'm going to do. Good luck.

Great advice. Stock rims are pretty good. Unless you are willing to shell out $3K or more, it is unlikely that you will be upgrading in any meaningful way. I've bought 'pretty looking' rims before. But they are nowhere near the stock rims when it comes to quality.

I sure would like to see what those 18" stock M3 wheels look like after the powdercoat.

Have you or anyone see the stock 18" M3 wheels chromed? That would like sweet.
