I bought a set of M LTW wheels (split 5-spoke design) for the track from Bekkers. Interesting that MOTORSPORT was stamped on the wheel, but not BMW.

Quality and finish were more than acceptable. Weight for a 17" wheel is approximately 18 lbs. One of the differences that I came across was that the replica was missing the internal safety bead that inspires all sorts of swearing from the person mounting the tires onto BMW ///M wheels.
