      Really impressed with this wheel. It perfectly mimics a stock BMW design, is easy to clean, has a better offset than my original ten spoke wheels, and just plain looks more sporty. Oh, and they are lighter than the originals. I just wish there was an aftermarket BMW or something better for a center cap than the stock caps. They slightly detract from the look.

        Very nice wheels for the price. They sat in a little close to my struts for being OEM, but I knew the offset was a bit different.
        But they worked. Doc was a very big help in making things right for me, when I had a slight issue with lug nuts. He was on it fast, and took care of me...... Would buy from the tire rack again!

          4/15/2016- This is an update to my previous review on the Special Edition F5 wheels packaged with General Altimax RT43s. After driving on them for 1 yeasr and 9 months (about 20,000 miles) this is my summary so far.


          THE SPECIAL EDITION F5 WHEELS... I GIVE THEM A 3.75 STAR RATING OUT OF 5 STARS.

          The four F5 Special Edition wheels I purchased still look good. They still give the car a much peppier look than the original steelies. Only one has any slight paint damage from a stone or other impact- it's not noticeable. Here's the only only problems.

          1. THE VALVES... Chinese-made rubber valve stems don't seat well in the valve holes of the F5 wheels. I kept losing tire pressure with the low quality rubber valves that came with the wheels and also with the valves the tire store installed. It was intermittent when they'd lose air, but when I touched the valve at all, you could hear it leak. All of a sudden I'd have 15lbs. of air in one of my tires. I mostly solved this problem when I made the tire store install Gorilla rubber stems I bought at Walmart. These were better quality, but now in hindsight, I'll use metal screw-down racing stems for these wheels from now on. That will hopefully solve this issue totally. I'm not sure if the wheel's valve holes are just machined wrong or all press-in valves stink these days?

          2. THE PAINT... The recessed holes for the valve stems have lost their silver paint, probably from the valves bending at high speeds.

          3. CLEANING... If you have greasable ball joints, the excess grease will drip onto the inside of the wheel and causes balance issues. Due to this, I bought ProForged non-greasable ball joints which not only solved the mis-balance problem, but made it so I don't need to clean the wheels as much. Ceramic brake pads also make for a dust-free wheel.

          4.THE GENERAL RT43 TIRES... They have worn evenly through year-round highway use, but I have recently noticed deep-puddle hydroplaning. I don't rotate these tires front to rear.
