Problems with 294 Wheels?

I'm thinking of buying a set of 294 wheels for my Z4. Has anyone had problems with them?

I don't even know what the 294 looks like. Are they a wheel offered with the Z4 in some markets?

They're OEM for the Z4 30i

I bought a set of 18" 294 wheels that I use in the summer. Love them. Gorgeous wheels. No problem except they're hard to keep clean.

They can be hard to find. Also make sure to order the correct valve, they require long stems.

I've found i get used to the look of just about any high end wheels after a day or so, and these are nice. But, and i know you didn't ask, the 293's and 296's seem so perfect for the DSB. and with that said, it is about customizing.
Curious if they have any cracking history.
