My friend had rims on his mustang and they were crap! He bought them new from the states and they kept getting bent!! Miguel is right, they do look ugly! Go with something else, I do not recommend these rims (from what I have seen my friend go through with them)

checked the price of the rims, they are 262.00 per rim plus shipping, these rims only have 1200 miles on the tires! and they are in mint condition


never asked about appearance i asked about quality, i love the style of the rim

I doubt they weigh 18lbs, my guess is 23.3lbs. (that's what most Fittipaldi 18" rims list for, except tubolare at 33lbs), 17-18lbs for 18" is BBS, SSR, OZ territory.

You say you're building a race car, don't skimp out on the wheels dude.

I would only go for:

BBS
Sparco
Volk
Momo
OZ
Fikse
SSR

anyway RevShoT dont listen to miguel, for him, if it not HRE or if its not OZ with 5" dish, it looks like crap.

I think they look alright for the money. About quality I dont know, ask Mystikal, he had Fittipaldis on his E30(not the same rim though)
