I'd do a little research on the Breytons. I was going to order them too. However there are many posts on the US section of problems with cracking.

Apparently, they don't stand up to well to pot holes. And you know what Sydney roads are like, especially after all this rain.

very true, i have read alot about Breytons cracking though im not too sure on what other wheels would be a good replacement in approx the same price range, hopefully the same design as well (black with the red stripe). What wheels did you decide on getting instead?

Pretty sure I am going to go for the VMR 710s in storm grey. But they are out of stock of the off set I need until mid august. So plenty of time to change my mind...... Again.

I bought my VMR wheels from these guys, SonicMS, so can recommend them as good to deal with.

The guy is Calvin. He is pretty good at getting back to ppl. He is on this forum as 'Cal@Sonic MS'. I ordered wheels & tyres (95 kgs), shipping was around $500. He also prepared a 'special' customs invoice for me!

Those Forgestar F14 wheels are VERY nice... any one want my VMR710's?

I have had Breytons GTS-R on my 135i for 2.5 years travelling over 60,000Kms. I have had zero problems and 100% happy with them.

That's great... But if you check out the USA section, there are plenty that are not as fortunate as you.

Just letting the OP know that there are plenty of well documented issues with these wheels. Plenty of happy customers as well.

Great looking wheels and well priced. I would love a set. But after researching - decided I personally didn't want to take the risk as it would-be very time consuming, and expensive, to make any claims under warranty
