Question Ever seen these M3 LTW replicas

Anyone ever seen these or try them? The seller is apparently in Niagara Falls.

They didn't answer me when I asked where they were.... I basically said I would come by and buy them if I liked them.
Maybe they want the shipping fees to make more money, I don't know!
Thanks for the offer Rev!

Those look almost the same as the LTW replicas I had before.

Hey Bry: I think that there are better and worse replicas. I know OEM suppliers are the best - they just lack the factory part numbers.
I just wonder if they are good, bad, or ugly butter soft metal is all.
These guys have 2 different versions pictured.

Yeah, the ones I had were very strong, didn't bend. However, the clearcoat and paint would constantly chip no matter how many times it was repainted. It was horrible. There were problems with the paint bonding to the material used for the wheels. They were also quite heavy. Aside from that, you can't beat the price.

Here is what I received - they are just a middleman for some warehouse operation and rely on shipping (expensive!) to make a buck!
they get shipped from a warehouse, and the company does not allow pickups. and i cannot change the shipping cost because, then i would be loosing money.

please also, note, that your address must be confirmed, or if you are in canada, you would have to fax in or scan and email a photocopy of your drivers license, so we keep these on file for fraud protection for us.


thanks

None the less... good guys to buy from. I was going to buy these wheels but I don't think my 245s will fit on the 7.5" wheel...
