IF i was ever gonna buy reps, i'd get Linea Corse, for the only reason that they're made in the philippines and the roads there are CRAP so~ i assume their made pretty tough.

Hks350 had a set on his time attack is350. I honestly think theyre fine. People bash on varrstoen and say they'll crack, bend, and whatever. It just depends on how you drive. Eventually any wheel will crack and bend. Probably gonna buy a set soon too.

I am of the opinion that as long as you have enough rubber and air around the wheel, your wheel is not just going to bend or crack.

I haven't tried them personally, but heard they're a decent, budget wheel. Linea Corse is up there too.

Did a bunch of research on their wheels on various forums. Everyone has been very pleased with the look and quality.

Look ----> They are about 90% right compaired to the "real" ones.
Build Quality ----> I've owned every Volk, Work etc....(real wheels) known to man and the Varstoens balanced perfect. 3 out of 4 wheels didn't need weights to balance. That say's alot about the tires too. I've never had a set of "real wheels" balance as well.
Toughness-----> Hmmm, I'd say there alittle better than Rota's but almost everyone who I know who have owned them have cracked them on bigger potholes. The difference is they crack and a Volk will bend. So which is worse????


In order according to HKS350......lulzz

best .... WORK
#2 ....... Weds
#3 ....... Volk
#4 ....... BBS
#5 ....... Varstoens
#6 ....... HRE
#7 ....... I-Forged

This is in order of Best to Worst wheels I've owned.

I recently had a set of Work CR-Kai refinished because of a bend, so sad to say, if you hit a pothole hard enough, it doesn't matter if you have a $100 wheel, or a $1,400 wheel. I've owned Enkei, TSW, Avant Garde, Tire Rack branded wheels, and so on. Never bent a rim save for the Works, weird huh? Tire was 225/40/18 so not super crazy low profile.

Wow, Volk came third and BBS came fourth....

BTW...
Bending = metal structure is uniform and thus somewhat flexible just like play-dough (can be bend but will not break apart)
Cracking = metal structure is not uniform and thus brittle just like a cracker biscuit (easy to break)

Forged wheels will always bent but hardly crack.
Casted wheels will always crack but hardly bent.

In terms of safty, bending is much more preferable than cracking.
