I've had two sets of Modulare wheels, never had an issue with quality. Not sure what you mean by affordable, but not in the same range as HRE. Peter Lee is always a pleasure to work with as well.

I dont blame you. Dropping 10k on a wheel setup is ridiculous IMHO. Especially for me because i have to deal with shitty NYC roads after the winter beating.

I think affordable would be a set of 4 wheels under 5k tires NOT included. Some of these wheel prices are unreal.

Vorsteiner Flow Formed (but they are not forged...but damn light!) I didn't want to go with anything but forged. Downside IMO...not a 'purely wheel-focused' company.

Used forged wheels (this is what I did, because the M5 is my daily driver and didn't want to bang up $10k wheels.) I got used 21" HRE's with brand new Mich PSS tires for $7k. Wheels alone were $2500 each new. And they are in damn good shape... which for me is fine. I don't need them perfect as they won't be after a few thousand miles here in the Northeast!

You could also get Dinan (made by Forgeline) for about $5k (maybe a bit more) which are great quality mono block forged wheels. Dinan lists them at over $6k. But reach out to dealers and you'll get quotes in the mid $5k-range.

Then you also got BC Forged. Lots of styles and colors to choose from. Fully forged with CNC-faces. You can get them for under $5k for 20". The only downside IMO...they've only been doing wheels few 2-4 years...and they are made in Taiwan. And ideally, I'd prefer to buy from an American company that's been building wheels for a time period that demonstrates proven quality.

PhilT3 has excellent options listed. If you are looking for American/Made in the USA, HRE is an great brand! Their flow form option comes at a good price point for the quality of wheel provided

I agree with Patrick. I had a set of Modulare B1 monoblock wheels on my E60 M5 and they were great. I bet you can get a set of 21's for 4.5k-5k.

HRE FlowForm wheels are made in Japan.

Oh my mistake.... I meant HRE the company. Maybe I should clarify and make it more clear in the comment

As mentioned Vorsteiner VFF wheels are a great choice but you can also go with Niche Essen wheels which are very inexpensive and fairly popular.
