opinions?

Hey guys, im looking at a set of 20" lipped rims for my e93, and came across these:

http://www.mhtwheels.com/wheel.cfm?cat=317
http://www.mhtwheels.com/images/gall...-STILETO-B.jpg

I'm not looking for a performance rim, just a strong forged rim that looks good. They seemed to be priced not badly for around $5K Canadian (inc. rubber) locally.

Any thoughts, or suggestions as to other options? I dont really want to spend much more than that...

Nice design, but I wouldn't spend 5k for a set of MHT wheels...

Try Klassen or DPE, or HRE instead.

Just my .02

They look good - dont know anything about MHT though - price seems reasonable since it includes rubber and in CDN$.

I think that design would look good on your JzB E93! Let us know what you do and will have to check them out at a future meet.

Don't know about Klassen pricing, but DPE and HRE are all like $7000-9000+CDN with rubber....not going to justify that on something I could bend going over a nasty pothole.

Anything that could SERIOUSLY be worth looking at for $5K or less?

Crap, didn't realize you guys got screwed that bad on the price of U.S. aftermarket parts!

Do you have access to a VOLK wheel dealer in your area?

For more cost effective solution I'd go Work or DPE

Volk does polished lip rims??

If I had the coupe or even sedan, I'd go for more racing style rims, but with the E93 I prefer a GT style rim
