Wonder if "same as OEM" means that they ARE actually the OEM wheels from BMW or the manufacturer that actually supplies to BMW.....

Someone should do a performance (and safety) comparison of these vs the rotobox boosts. More choice is generally a good thing.

I doubt BMW makes any of its motorcycle wheels. I know Beyern Wheels manufactures most BMW alloy car wheels.

I have always gotten a substantial discount when I buy from alpha Racing, but then again each order I have placed has included a substantial amount of parts...

For sure, I didn't mean BMW actually made them....although considering they DO make a lot of their own C/F including the HP4 Race's frame, I'm sure they could if they wanted to.

What I meant was if these are the EXACT same as the HP4 Race (i.e. same vendor), or just similar. I found the title a little ambiguous.....

I am also wondering the same thing and what the price will be. Also, how much lighter are these than the standard forged HP wheels...? My HP4 is already mostly CF as it is, might as well get a set of these...
