Put these on last month for winter. Only have about 1K miles on them, but no complaints thus far.

A set I had vibrated at highway speeds, even though they balanced fine. I measured the hub bores to be ever so slightly larger than stock, 72.8mm. The dealer I bought them from eventually gave me a full refund.

Thanks for the heads up.

Did it happen immediately or over time? I've had mine up to 110 mph plus and haven't had any issues yet.

From day one. I had the tired road force balanced a half a dozen times at several different shops, had the tires replaced with a different brand, nothing helped. Luckily my retailer, Discount Tires, is very, very good, and gave me the choice to return the tires and wheels for a full refund, even though they were 9 months old.

Hopefully it was just a one-off. I'll be sure to keep my head on a swivel and will let the forum know if I have issues.

I considered purchasing AG but found a board member who was selling the OEM M5 20" wheels. They fit perfect and are very light. Try to go OEM if you can...it will cost you a few more bucks but the quality and piece of mind is worth it.

I have a set of AG M368 on my car.

They look very nice.. one issue I had was pitting on my rim from what the AG claims is road debris. I never had an issue like this with any other rims so im still at a loss. I really can't say too much because the price of the rims are pretty reasonable, but you get what you pay for I suppose.

Any pics of the damage to your wheels? They have some cool styles, I'm just worried about quality and durability.

Did they put hub rings on? I had a vibration on my M310's took them to a shop they roadforced them and put hubrings on. Any wheel or tire shop worth it's salt should know to measure the hubs and put the right size ring on.
