    Thanks for all the help with the stores, I will take a look now.

    I also rang bmw where Im picking my car up from and asked about their tyres, they sent me a brochure and I rang in and asked about a pair of decent looking 5 spoke pair, both 18s and 17s, I was blown away with the price 1700 for the 17's and 2600 for the 18s. I told the guy that other alloys dont cost that much, and he said I know, sounded like he knew they were over inflated on price. I then asked him about alloys cracking, he said it was due to road conditions said impacts such as potholes crack them. I also asked him about insurance and if I get the alloys, should I tell the insurance company when they ask if Iv made any modifications to the car after I bought it, he said no.

    Sounded like a nice guy, at least I didnt get a knob who just started to push the bmw tyres to me even though the price was over the top. But I will definetly not be getting OEM tyres from bmw. Replicas will be the way for me.

    Would branded alloys (bbs etc) still be better than replicas of is it the same thing

    does that apply to only the bmw sets or all 18 or 19 alloys available

    These are the type I would like to get, with a standard simple installation, if anyone knows any replicas that would be a straight fit I would really appreciate it, 17s or 18s

    All 18's/19's when fitted with RFT's will most probably suffer, but interesting the BMW guy said it's just from damage. There is a huge fuss over them, mine were all unmarked, within BMW tolerances and still cracked.
    I am going replica 19's and non RFT's later this month.

    I think it depends on what style of alloy you have Mr Vorny...more spokes means less likely to crack. I believe you have the 5 spokes only, right?

    Indeed, mine are the 230's, but looking at posts on a rival website the multispoke 225's (M-Style) seem to have the same issues. It has to be the RFT's as the M3's and Alpina's have no such issues currently.

    I will keep that in mind, or go for the 17s
