however, the wide widths, and low offsets, make a great match for the e30 community aswell...so, there is a clash of interest given that respect.
also, many are against the fake 2,3 piece wheel look the Sportmax's have..whereas you can spend ~2500-3000 on a set of BBS RS's, or ~$1000 for a set of fat lipped Borbet Type A's.
Meanwhile the sportmax's support the desired 15x8 or 16x8 with low offsets...except...they aren't uber expensive.
I think they're a great wheels to have while you save up your $$$ for a set of 'exotic' wheels (if thats your goal)
