I emailed this company (OE Wheel) a week or so ago to see if they still had some replica Style 89's - no response back. Googled the company and found a post where another person was very unhappy and stated there were complaints about the company at the BBB.

I agree - I would pay a little more to get good customer service.

GMG - I sure can appreciate that, and I wish you the best of luck regardless which direction you choose. I had two good experiences with them and just wanted to share my perceptions. Lakeshore and Wheels and Caps are two other replica retailers that seem to have good feedback on Ebay and in here. Check them out and see what you find. As always, personal experience with retailers is a good thing to post in here for the next guy who has the same question as you.

Driver8-

Thanks for info on 295/40's.

Question: Tire Rack tire vs wheel size chart list the 295/40 Goodyear tires for 10" -11.5" wheels. Did these work on your staggered 9.5x20f and 10.5x20r?

Will the tires work on 9.5"x20 front?

Great pictures!

If I received a bent rim, I would have made them send me a new one or stop the charges on the card. That's ridiculous.

They worked out GREAT! No issues whatsoever. 1/2" of wheel width spread across 295mm of tire cross-section doesn't create any problems.

I disagree, I had a bad experience with Wheels and Caps.

I got my replica 132 20's staggered from them. Lets just say, one of the wheels was bent. I already sold my OEM rims so I had to put it on. Called that same day, the minute i left the tire shop and they told me they couldn't do anything about it since I already mounted the tire. They didn't send all (4) caps. Called 3 times to get (1) cap from them which took 3 weeks to get to me. The first time I called, the guy told me that it shouldn't be hard to find a cap since it fits OEM caps. Yeah Right! I bought OEM wheel caps for BMW and it doesn't even fit. I had to sand quite a bit to make the OEM caps fit in the hole.

And to think they boast on ebay that they are a million dollar earner last year with some thousand square feet of facility and they couldn't even send me a stinking cap that only their cap will fit the wheels. PATHETIC!

If I were you guys, get them from wheels and caps. Also on ebay...I read a post here where a guy bought his rims from them. He mounted the tires and found that it was bent. Wheels and caps sent another wheel overnight even when the guy hasn't sent the bent one back yet and he got a replacement already. Now that is what I call customer service.

I swore to myself that if I get a chance to let someone know about that company that I will and low and behold...here is my chance.

So I ended up having my bent rim fixed by a local wheel shop. Took an hour and $125 but as long as I don't have to deal with them losers from Florida then i'm happy.

Take your pick!
