Ah, accessing from desktop

What about Team Dynamics Pro Race 1.2? I like their minimalistic looks and they're lightweight too. Pretty cheap

Have yours buckled / dented Rob? It's going to be tricky to find strong 19's if you don't want to pay big dollar.

Forged / rotary formed / roll forged / HLT wheels are good and tough, but expensive. :(

If you can have these sent to a shipping forwarding company, you can powdercoat them in any colour you like. Pretty good price imo

The car is hardly used and I'm sure the wheels I bought were poor quality to start with ( less that 2k miles on them)

Yes all slightly buckled but balanced up OK, drives OK now you wouldnt know, but I know and annoys me

In half tempted to drop down to 18s?

So no idea what to do or what to buy

You have 370mm brakes on though, right? That would limit your choice of 18" wheels; OZ Ultraleggeras have plenty of barrel clearance, but I'd suggest measuring them up before buying. I'm a fan of lightweight wheels, and for the price nothing beats OZs. You could try Sparco as well which is the budget brand of OZ, don't know if they do wheels in your offset though. OZ certainly do. I would certainly pay the premium commanded by them, forgot the extra price as soon as I picked one up.

Are any of their Sparco products tough forged wheels? Or all soft, cast rubbish?

Essiii had them on his M135i although to be fair they were track wheels rather than dailies. They're not HLTs but I never heard any complaints about them; did hear a couple of horror stories concerning Team Pros but they were one-offs. I would still personally pay the premium for OZ wheels
