Default Konig wheels?

Anyone use Konig wheels? I like a few of their styles, but I haven’t found much information on them. I’ve searched here and there is limited information as well. Thanks in advance.

I have em on and so far they are holding up on the streets w/ bumps and whatnot on spirited driving. I've seen people use them on track cars and liked it very much as they are light, strong and inexpensive.

searching the top Wheel manufacturers around you'd see them in the top 10 half the time so that says something I guess.

I got the hypergrams on my car and love the way it looks as well. and definitely much lighter than the OEM 19's. For pics check my IG (@rebornsaz).

There is probably a reason you haven't found much on them, I highly doubt anyone on here is running them.

not much in the BMW community, Miata track cars has the most I've seen and on their top line of wheels haven't seen anything that breaks/cracks unless it was caused by an accident in track. google search will actually give you the answers OP needed.


I've researched them for about a month before pulling the trigger, quite happy on the decision. I didn't wanna be the same as everyone else who pretty much go for either BBS, Volks, Apex or Enkei's. I wanted to have a different look as well as it being light and strong and it so happens konig is very inexpensive too.

They don't have much choices for 5x120's for BMW tho, so choices are very limited.

I’ve always been open to trying different companies. I was just surprised not many people had them on here. Is there any specific reason why? Erick, how long have you had them on yours? I’ll check your Instagram and see them. Anyone know how they compare to Alex wheels?

about 5-6months now I believe, and I drive pretty hard and I've hit some potholes/bumps really hard (once hit a bump at 70mph.. freakin construction on freeway w/ no signs..) a few times already and the wheels have held up pretty good. and it looks good in gold too lol.

These were the ebay specials for civics and integras in the early 2000’s. Now, even high school kids with old integras and civics don’t run them lol. You won’t find much if any info here

At one point, in the late 80's / early 90's konig was a quality multi-piece company. The company has since been sold and resold and now make "replica" 1 piece wheels for JDM cars primarily. Most konig wheels are priced under 400 bucks. PLEASE don't put konig wheels on your e46 m3. Check with APEX race wheels....they have whats called B-list wheels, they are wheels that have either a slight color blemish or someones eyebrow hair dried into the paint (not cracked or bent or anything)....they are super light and quality wheels and you can get a set for around 400 bucks of the "B grade wheels"

you can listen to these guys, or you can do your own research on what actual people who owns/tracks them has to say. its not hard to find them, heck just go to their facebook page and see what their reviews and comments have, better than what the hear-say that you will see in typical BMW forums.

Uhg. Königsberg was scene to some of the greatest horror of WW2. Civilians caught in the crossfire; so much death.
