I owned a set of double spoke M3 style replicas from discount tire direct. They look great and seem to be of good quality. The only problem I had with them was getting them perfectly centered on the hub. Without being perfectly centered they caused a bad vibration. I then ordered a set of hubcentric rings and my problem was solved. The rings centered them perfectly and they then rode really smooth. I hope this helped some. They are on ebay now because I recently bought a 95 M3.
Tirerack replica rims would run $750 for a set up new staggered setup M contours. From the stealer, it would go at least $1800. What gives? What are you getting for an extra $1000?

Im tempted. Please talk me into it or out of it, depending on experiences. Thanks, guys. I can't find used Contours anywhere......
