New wheels arrived today!

Post by bmwaddict » Tue Sep 12, 2017 7:54 pm

The Breyton Inspiration 10j rears I bought from America arrived today, only took about 2 weeks!
They're so light I thought I'd been scammed when I lifted both boxes at once!
They're as new and have never had tyres fitted or been on a car. As soon as I get the fronts stripped and painted to match I'll be fitting them. Wanted a set of these for years, taken me ages to make a staggered set as these wheels are discontinued and super rare, especially in 19s.

Super cool and amazing quality wheel.

Looking forward to seeing them on.

Hi, they look quality :thumbsup: Are they forged? Be interesting to see a weight comparison between these & your old wheels 8)

Thanks, not sure if they're forged, but theyre about half the weight of the Linea Corsas, if not less. I can pick them up with one finger! Gotta love that German build quality!

The second ones look stunning! I'm guessing 2k+
I would have loved these if I had a spare 2.5k

Yeah unfortunately and too much for me to ever spend on wheels..

They are very nice I am not a big fan of 5 spoke designs but i like them.

They look lovely - would have those on any sports car

If you think some of those posted above are expensive try a set of F Type blades:
20" Blade Five-Spoke Silver with carbon fibre inserts Rear T2R3291 Front T2R3290 £3,880.00

Believe me - I don't either so purchased with them on at no premium to others on sale. You can spend a fortune on rims and tyres if you have cash.
Ran my Z4 for the last 9 years on the same stock rims
