Style 87 Replicas - How's yours holding up

I stand corrected. I was under the guise & impression that all replicas came out of different factories depending on the style of the wheel itself, and that the replica dealers like Lakeshore, WAC, OE, etc were just that --- resellers. But the wheel itself was made by one factor and one design.

However, there are different companies making the same style...

I just noticed 2 types of the 87's.
On that is stand/embossed on the face with the *BWM* logo and the other is completely smooth. They both take a OEM sized centercap which is interesting as well, as I thought replica centercap holes were slightly smaller as rule.
So for all you Style 87 replica owners, how is your fit & finish holding up. Paint durability, etc. You've got a smooth faced one or a ~bubbly~ face one

Interesting.

I have replicas that are smooth. Today I saw a 4.6 and the wheels had the bmw logo around the lug holes. I'd be surprised a replica with that level of detail.
