Because the elite of the r3vlimited community have a cute little emoticon that say so.

also, they were typically manufactured for a non-euro vehicle, and geared towards a old school JDM aplication (a86, trueno's etc etc) hence the wide width, and low offsets.

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)
