    Alpina Wheels

    I simply love the look of the Alpina wheels on the Z8 and am considering getting a set however buying these new from the dealer will leave quite a hole in the wallet. Does anyone have any experience with buying these "reconditioned" to OEM spec? Surfing the web I noticed that wheelsrims.net offers the 4 wheels for about $1,500.
    Any suggestions or comments?

    I've not heard of them before, but they could be a good source - let us know if they provide a good product and service.

    $1500 for 4 wheels sounds very fishy.I would stay away.They are most probably junk

    Waiting to hear how you made out

    I think the Alpina Wheels would look outstanding on our Z8's.

    Thanks for any information.

    I used to have alpina wheels. With tires new the package was 3000 GBP. Sold them after few years for 1200 euro's so second hand 1500 usd can be real. New ones off course sound fishy and I know they have "fakes" around. The originals are produced by BBS and you can see their "MARK" inside the rims.
    good luck

    Hi Z8Kar - Did you end up buying reconditioned Alpina rims?

    Does anyone know a good source for new ones?

    Thanks.

    Hi Tyler,

    No, have not decided what to do as yet but close to $4,000 for a set of new ones seems a lot.

    Check with Dana at Peter Pan - he suggested that I put Alpina rims on my car and the told me that he could get them.
