I really like the gunmetal color. How is the quality of these wheels? I guess only time will tell..

Yup. I would love to know the quality. Do you know if they were well balanced from the factory? These are just at such an awesome price! I was at coastal flats in Fairfax, virginia and saw a black ISx50 with them. I will add a pic tomorrow.

OP Congrats on the wheels! Keep us updated on how well they handle pot holes.

Looks good but you need 08+ center caps. 06-07 are silver. You need hyper silver!!!

I like it. F-sport springs give a conservative drop... but i'd definitely go lower.

How does the alignment come out with F-sport springs?

Love the way these are looking.....I might change my mind on pulling the trigger, but can ANYONE attest to the quality or craftsmanship of these wheels?

I've put about 200 miles on these already since I mounted them up; mixed highway and stop/go. The wheels are balanced well and the car rides perfect. It doesn't pull and tracks straight; I measured the camber and it's -1 degree in the front and -1.3 degree in the rear. I will get an official alignment soon but I suspect it will be fine (aside from perhaps the camber). They appear to be well balanced from the factory; in fact, on one of the rear wheels, just one small wheel weight on the inside lip--no weights on the inside surface. All the others have a small weight on the inside lip with 4-6 stick-on weights on the inside surface.

I guess time will tell on the quality but as far as I can tell so far, the quality is good...

My car is on F-Sport springs and the tires are Summitomo HTR Z III's at 225/35-19 front and 255/35-19 rear. No rubbing issues at all and and I'm very happy:

When it's time for a new set of tires, I think I'm going to go with 235/35-19 fronts and 265/35-19 rears. Heck maybe even 245/30-19 and 275/30-19 would work on these rims...
What's the offset in the rear? It is very well flushed with the fender at this ride height.

These look great. Only thing im on the fence about is the strength of the wheels. Ive had a bad experience with replica wheels. Anyone have any insight about these?
