305 FT101 vs AG M580

305 Forged FT101



Or

Avant Garde M580




These are the ones I'm leaning towards... both obviously look very similar. Just wondering if anybody has any pics, info or feedback on these wheels....tried search not much out there



Also, liking these 305 FT105's


Any thoughts on what ones for a AW 428i coupe?

I would also suggest looking into Vorsteiner and BC forged wheels, they have similar designs, and have some pictures of them on BMW's

Yup.... could get a whole set for the price of one


Apparently 305 Forged makes wheels for the some companies that charge 2-4 times what 305 sale the same wheel for.

Lightweight, look good, inexpensive..... sold

I really wanted FT101s, but, I was turned away since the OEM caps don't fit. I'm holding out for some gun metal VMR 803s
