Default Is Breyton like AC Schnitzer?

Brandon, you probably know more about this since Breyton is carried @ The Tire Rack: http://www.tirerack.com/wheels/breyton/breyton.jsp

I love their designs and think the Breyton Spirit would look hot on a GS. I can't find any fitment info or pricing info on the Web. I compared them to AC Schnitzer because everything seems to be geared toward BMW.

Also, if they only have BMW fitments, how hard is it to change that to a 114.3?

Yeah Breyton is a BMW application-specific tuner. You would have to get the wheels re-drilled to use them (PM Lonely toothbrush about this), and the offsets would have to be given lots of attention. BMW's run a lower offset than our cars (stick out more). Also Breytons are heavy, they sure look nice though, and they are pretty reasonable on the pricing too!

That was fast - Thanks D.

Does redrilling affect the integrity of the wheel? Will I be more susceptible to cracks? I'll run these questions by Lonely Toothbrush too.

Dont worry about it man, my jobs LAN is down so I cant do any work, all I can do is surf the net (oh the pain! )

Lonely has re-drilled Brabus wheels on his LS so he can tell ya all about it. I think the offsets would be the largest concern!
