Downsides to M6 Replicas?

Sorry if this has been done already... kind of new to this forum

What are the downsides to purchasing replicas of the M6 rims for my 135i?

It seems to me the only downside is, a lot of people have become interested in them. I really love the look of the rim, but if everyone else is getting them, it makes me reconsider.

This may not bother you, it's just the only downside I could find really. Other than the fact that replicas weigh more than the actual M6 wheels.

You definitely want to research the brand before you go into it. The ones we have dealt with are all JWL and VIA certified so you are ensured a wheel that lives up to stock standards in terms of strength and construction. Just be wary that there are cheaper brands which do not live up.
