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.
Stance does make some good wheels. I did some research into them as well. The "CV3" DO actually have concavity to them. Just not as much as Vossen's wheels do. I can post a picture if you would like. 18" wheels have just been a happy medium for me. I like my ride comfort. I have the stock 18's and then the Traklite 18's. If you know of anyone who might want to get their hands on some wheels, let them know.

It never ceases to amaze me when people talk real vs fake or replica etc. There are no companies that will stake their business on producing an unsafe wheel. Str-racing.com Look at my styles and you will see a number of wheels you recognize. Call them knockoffs, replicas, fakes, whatever. I sponsor 3 Formula Drift cars that run wheels I pulled right from my inventory and have never had an issue. The quality of wheels has come so far in the last 2 years that there's no reason to build cheap. I love when people spend 2-3X's what they have to for a center cap.
Sorry, got on the soapbox a little. To the op, that's the beauty of YOUR CAR AND YOUR TASTE...IT'S YOURS! Nice setup.

I feel the same way. I would rather pay $500 versus $2500 for wheels that are similar in style. It just makes more sense. Unless your the type of person that has to have name brand everything and then you can justify spending that kinda money.... And your right, "Your car, Your taste" Forum's are meant for opinions and information and not that we have to accept them but they are helpful at times. Thanks strracing. Gonna have a buddy of mine do a photoshoot soon.

These are the CV3's (knockoff) I have on my car right now.

Also below is a comparison between the two "CV1's"
Those CV3 reps are too funny but 18x8 for those "cv1's" is such a weak offset, their gonna sink in the back

Check out the line of Rohana wheels they look similar to the 5 spoke Vossen's, just put their 20's on my 350. Can be seen at SeaaDucer garage.

Where in the hell do you find $500 rims that have the same type of look as a Vossen or other name brand wheel? Just curious?

Those don't look bad, maybe if the rear was more concave it would look more aggressive. They are not my style but it's nice to see something different besides #TeamVossen on 90% of the cars on here. And I hope people don't think Vossen was the first to come out with simple concave design wheels lol. At the end of the day Vossens are a heavy CAST wheel that's overpriced.

Looks great man! Drop it on H&R's for the 1.5" drop and call it a day. I think it would really make the rims stand out.
