Anyone interested in Group Rims purchase - February 6, 2013, 05:59 PM

I am planning to pick up a new set of rims from Sonic Tuning in Gaithersburg MD tomorrow. Talked with Ray who is a part owner or the owner. Said if I get 5 people he would cut deals on the wheels. I mean they are already great priced.

I am planning to pick up a set of 19x8.5 ST8s. The price for the set is $499.




If you are not sure or are worried about the quality, just view the web. They are a sponsor on the BMW forums and have great reviews all around the web. Let me know if you are interested and I will call and let him know.

New rims(19x8.5 polished lip w/ Gun Metal Face) were picked up today. Very cool guy and cool store. Answered all questions, was easy to work with. If I need anything, I will be looking at Sonic Tuning to help me get it. Also gave me a guy they work with for tires. Have to call him about a set of 225/40/19 G-Max AS-03 all season tires. Could not beat $499 flat for a new set with warranty. Literally gave him $500 and he gave me a $1 back.

I had LC LM reps on my G35, wasn't a big fan of them. Awfully heavy, coating was weak, and they were the worst to balance. Since then I try to stick with a reputable brand/quality.

If these work out then they were definitly a good deal!

Well crazy enough, these aren't heavy at all. They are titanium gun metal an weighed 25lb for 19x8.5 and my oem 17x6.5 alloys are approx 23 lbs. Totally surprised me when i lifted them up.

Do you know which cast method they used? I'm guessing gravity or low pressure.

I m gonna go out on a limb and say 99% sure good old gravity, if it was low pressure cast, it would be much lighter.

Yea not sure, the page only says:

  • Set of 4 Wheels.
  • OE Low Pressure Casting Manufacturing.
  • Light Weight.
  • Power coating durable finish.
  • Stronger than regular cast wheels.
  • Cone Seated lugs are required for installation, you can purchase them under Wheels Accessories.

These wheels were made to JWL, VIA, and ISO-9001:2000 standards. All wheels feature a clearcoat for maximum shine and protection from brake dust and elements. The wheels also come with a 1-year limited warranty. Certifications include JWL, VIA & ISO-9001:2000
