I BOUGHT FROM THEM...Please don't buy from them. I was not very happy with their service and the product. Unless you want headache and countless times of calling them up then you would listen to me.

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!

And now for an alternative viewpoint....

I've bought two sets of 20" reps from them. I've been generally pleased with the quality of the wheels and the deal itself. I had no issues with out-of-round/bent wheels. JMDXXX and I noted our collective experience with replicas (and OE Wheel and their products) a couple years ago in a post oringinally on RoadFly which is now on the X5World front page here:

Buyers Guide for Replica BMW Wheels

Everyone has issues with product quality from time to time. It's all in how it's handled that makes all the difference. I would hope that moore9911/OE Wheel would stand behind their product if it is defective.

The only other advice I would offer is that the replica wheels tend to be heavier than OEM, and therefore, are more finicky when balancing. You'll want to be sure that your wheel and tire guy does a DUAL PLANE spin balance on them or otherwise you'll feel the dreaded shimmy/pulsation through the steering wheel.

Thanks for the feedback...
I think I would rather spend more and not have the possibility of GRIEF.
No time for that...
