Did I forget to mention that you could also send a pair of those wheels out to Weldcraft to be widened to 9"? That would make it easier to fit some 275s on the rear of the car. It still doesn't change the possibilty of rubbing the outer fender, but it's another option.

something to mention. Looking at the last pic of the BMW close up of the wheel notice the spoke gusset that attaches the back of the spoke to the face of the second lip on the rim. The replica has a gap behind the spoke. Tooling for that would be less expensive and a little less expensive and I would imagine they are not quite as strong but still meet DOT, they have to. Lateral strength is somewhat reduced. For street Otay, test em.

That's for the set. You could get real M6 wheels for $800/ea.
