Woah this is crazy, I didn't know they made replica OEM wheels. I worked at a company that refinished wheels for years but Ive never seen something like this

As long as the rims are DOT certified and meet or exceed all the US safety standards I think they would be fine.

I ran a set of ebay rims on my e46 for track days and they lasted years because they were properly certified.

I would hardly believe a replica wheel like that would cost almost $700 considering something like RPF1 would cost about $300 per wheel...

After reading the comments it looks like the website used the price of a OEM wheel as a benchmark. That price was struck through and the new "sale" price was placed below. Was there any certifications listed? I didn't see any unless I missed them.

I like the 05-06 Type S wheel. The 02-04 Type S got the shaft on their wheel & tire combo, IMO.

The website lists «JWL structural certification» but I am concerned with the weight and paint finish. The Type S wheels weigh about 21-22 lbs.

I was thinking of using my current Type S wheels as winter wheels and purchasing these (or just have my wheels refinished). Decisions, decisions...
