I would say Varrstoens offers something more similar
But i venture to say that the link you provided may be a better option.
Im curious to see where these wheels are made?
They advertise for BMW(who really knows?) and I would imagine if they are made in Germany (longshot) it might be a better option.
Plus they are flexible on offsets which is good if you want the old school look (which i like)
Not into the the stretch a 215 tire over a 10 " wheel fad. Im too old.

I don't think you should go for knockoffs if you care about the wheel cracking or having a chance of cracking. If you plan on getting a replica then you should probably get Varrstoens, it's not guaranteed to be quality but its probably the nicest replica. I'm about to put on a real set of LMs since my brother is lending it to me, but I don't think I really want a set of Varrstoens later on. I'm grateful that my brother is lending me his rims, but LMs look pretty dull now that so many people get knockoffs of it. You get pretty used to seeing it whether they're real or not. But if you don't care if its quality or played out then by all means go ahead.

By the way, the Varrstoens all come in pretty aggressive specs. I think the most aggressive there is for 19 inch is 19 x 11 0+ offset.
AFAIK the specs come in:
19 x 9.5 (35+, 15+, and 0+)
19 x 11 (35+, 15+, and 0+)

That's just for 19 in the SC's bolt pattern, you should check out their site for more info. I think the BBS LM replica they have is called "Varrstoen 1.1.2".

Any wheel could crack. It dosnt matter the brand. I'd rather buy knock offs just incase I crack one. It's better than repairing 1 custom dished work equip.

Of course any wheel cracks, but are you saying that Varrstoens are better quality than Work wheels?

Why not XXR? I ran them for a year no problem stretched tires.

Reps are reps. But if I was to go with a brand prob varrstoens, since they have aggressive offsets.

I'm sure if you take care of any wheel you'll be fine, some people just think that all wheels should be able to go over several potholes with no problems. It's just common sense :|

My ESM 004's. Very cool guys but they are not as popular in the Japanese market as they started with Euro's first. Good wheels too and I've own Works before.
