Bought these wheels to replace a badly curbed stock setup. For the price, not a bad wheel overall. They do look very aggressive in person (esp. the staggered package), and the hyper silver is a VERY bright finish, and had some minor imperfections (some areas had been applied too thick, others too thin). The wheels were well balanced when received from TR, though one of the fronts looked like it needed an excessive amount of weight added to get it to roll properly. Once on the car, the weights aren't visible, so no big deal. If you need hub-centric rings, install can be a bit sketchy as noted in the other review. I put them on myself and had a tough time keeping the retaining spring from popping out as I tried to set the wheel on the hub. After a few tries, though, got them on and they do fit really well. No vibration issues, well balanced at speed, etc. All in all, for the price (under 1500 bucks mounted, balanced and delivered), this is a great wheel. It's by no means in the same category as a BBS or one of the more high-end manufacturers, but it has a great aggressive look, and I like that I was able to get them staggered, for a wider rear tire. The wider rear wheels are very concave, and look great on my car - I've received lots of compliments on the setup, even from other BMW guys who have spent three times as much on wheels. Only other downside, they are a bit difficult to clean. Long term I'd like to see TR offer a stock center cap, or at least an adapter for these, as it seems like there's be a market for it. All in all, I'd recommend them, and would buy again.
