Anyone interested in some 19in style 65 reps? They were on my car when I bought it and from what I have researched they are quite impossible to find.

I had them refinished and they were on the car for maybe 200 miles after refinishing. They still have good rubber on them too. One rear wheel is a bit out of round and makes the car shudder (extremely slight) and can prob be fixed. Hell it may even be the tires not sure. If you are in the DFW area you can take the wheel back to the place that refinished them. They have already agreed to look at the wheel for me. They said it might just need to be "road forced" balanced.

I wanted some lighter wheels so I just went ahead and got some apex arc-8s and really don't have a need for them.

I paid $600 for them to be refinished and the tires (practically new are about $500-600).

PS: I have all 4.. just took some pics of a front and rear.

I’m in DFW TX. Price is 2500 shipped. Pic of my car is before wheels were refinished.

I am going to take the wheels back to the refinisher on Monday to have them checked/rebalanced etc. I'm sure they will resolve the issue. I'll update this post with what they find.

Hi,

Could you provide details of the following please?!

1. Widths of each wheel, the offsets and if the centre bore is E39 specific 74.1 or a different sizing which would require adaptors.
2. What brand and model are the tyres for each wheel? (I see Ironman on the pics)
3. Could you confirm if the 'shake' is caused by the tyres needing careful/more intensive balancing, or if there is a slight buckle in the wheel itself? (obviously once you take to the refinisher or reputable quality tyre fitment centre)
4. Are you open to offers ?

Cheers, Dennis!

I apologize for not providing enough info in my original post.

Rear tires are Ironman IMOVE Gen AS 275/30. Front tires are Radar Dimax R8 245/35. Both front and rear tires are z rated. The front wheels are 19x8.5 ET 25. The rear wheels are 19x9.5 ET 22.5. Both front and rear wheels are 74.1 bore. I personally did not run any spacers etc with these.

I am taking the wheel that I think is the issue back to the finisher today to be looked at. I am open to reasonable offers.

Took wheel back to refinishers... they put the wheel on their straightener and are going to completely refinish the wheel. Unfortunately... they are making me pay 160 to have it redone b/c its been so long. Its really my fault as I got them refinished in Feb and drove about 100-200 miles.. then took them off and put them in the corner of the garage after I put my new wheels on. They said its been so long its hard to "know" if it left the shop that way. I know it did.. but I get it.

At any rate.. wheel will be good this week.
