I think your current setup looks better than the new wheels. The new wheels to me resemble oem G37 coupe wheels.

Varrostoen is famous and well known by making knockoffs and doing well and XXR is literally right behind them. Same look same feel for half the price!

to the OP. They do resemble CV3's but not identical but to each their own. Post pics when you get them and have them mounted up!
Thats cool, my comment was solely based upon OP comment of Knockoff CV1s. And like i said to each their own. Its my opinion based off of what was said, and there aint a "vossen bandwagon" because if OP stated Knockoff Concept, Knockoff BBS and they had no resemblance Id have the same comment.

I think the stock wheels look better then your current setup but that's just my opinion. I would agree with some of the comments posted about pricing and appearance only if these looked like Vossen wheels but they don't so I can't.

What size are those wheels? and From the looks of it, lowering with springs you wont have any issues.

is your rear a 255? looks a lot meatier than the front. If they are 18x8 all around, you can really just run 1 tire size

Yes, 255 in the back. I bought brand new tires for the stock staggered set up and I didn't wanna have to spend 300 on 2 new tires when I already have brand new ones.

OP, no... Just no.

Your "knock-off CV3's" have no concavity to them. Nor do they have a deep inner lip.

Your "knock-off CV1's" look like a split 5 spoke. NOT like the CV1's.

However, as long as you like the look, that is what matters. Congrats on your cheap wheels. I love cheap wheels. And that's why I typically sport Stance wheels on my cars.
