ALuFELGEN SF-71s. great choice. shout out.

It's been a couple months since I've purchased my set of SF-71s. All I can say is I still love them. The great team at Alufelgen with their patient and knowledgeable staff. They were able to make great recommendations and were able to answer all my questions about fitments and such. At that time, one of my stock rims suffered a stress crack (according to BMW, it was due to the "fact" that I supposedly hit a pot hole yet the crack started from the center of the wheel), timing was of the essence. The fact that I got the wheels within the week of ordering them, surely is going be a positive thing in my book. The wheels themselves are just amazing looking. The way the wheel sits perfectly straight with the fender gives it a custom look. The recommended size and width gives it such a great low aggressive stance, the way the car should look. The endless compliments on them are just a plus. I believe the best one to them is that BMW should've contracted out Alufelgen to make the wheels for all of their line up.

Anyone out there who loves their SF-71s still feel free to pitch in your experience with them and post a pic or two.

Yours look great! Personally, I think the CS-7s look better, and will be buying a gunmetal set soon.

Thanks. And yes, I did have to make that final decision between going for the CS-7 vs SF-71. Logic for me was hugely based on less spokes equals less cleaning time.

235/35/19 and 265/30/19 for the rear. As always there is a chance of slightly rubbing when going with an aggressive setup, but the setup worked fine for me for the first two months until I had it rolled by a friend who had a fender roller. Now granted before it was rolled when I had people sitting in the rear seat, it tend to rub only when there were bumps or dips in the road. Overall, avoidable if I had decided to keep my rear seats passenger free for the rest of it's days.

These have the titanium gunmetal finish. Very clean, shiny look when it isn't coated with a thick layer of brake dust.

Those look nice too.
Which offsets did you decide to go with? I definitely just left it up to the guys at Alufelgen decide which set would work best for me.

They only come in one offset for the 1 series. These wheels were designed specifically for the 1er, no spacers required.

Front - 19x8 et45
Rear - 19x9 et48

I'm running 225 on the front and 255 on the rear with zero problems.

what brand of tires you have on 225 and 255? i'm in communication with Matt from Alfelgen, ready to make the order for SF71's just want to make sure that i order the right tires as I don't want any rubbing, right now going with Hankook v12 225/35/19 front and 255/30/19 rear on titanium gunmetal.

Love mine too! Best looking wheels available for the 1 in my opinion! Mine are titanium gunmetal, but I'm waiting on a set of gloss black SF-71s when they become available again.

The anticipation is the worst part. Luckily, mines came in within the week, Alufelgen was pretty great with their promptness.
