Can anyone tell me about these wheels?

Obviously, they are knockoffs of the M5 wheel. Are they decent or are they complete garbage?

Thanks!

What you pay is what you get. Don't expect too much

It does say 'low pressure cast' .. just one better than gravity cast. Probably Chinese made.

The F10 is a heavy car so bumps and pot holes take a toll. Personally I would get a good quality wheel but if you're careful driver and live in a good location then maybe you'll be fine.

I figured they were Chinese. I love the look. I just don't want issues. I think you told me everything I need to know.

Thanks!

You might as well get these. OEM > Knockoffs.

My 20" M6 replicas I bought from **********s are very good quality, and they were just $899. I've had now issues whatsoever. They meet the same standards as JWL. The finish is great too. I'm going to buy these M5 replicas when they come out with 20"
