Default Vossen CVT or Niche Invert......

I'm on RSR Down springs.
Going for 19" , very tough choice , any advise, comments or info will be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

VOSSEN CVT
Made in Taiwan
26/27 lbs
Looks beautiful on the 3IS (Stitch's car is sooooo sexy)
Cost around US$500 per wheel here in Singapore

NICHE INVERT
Made in USA
Approx, 20/21 lbs
Looks nice in pic but have not seen any installed photos. (Would love to see it on a 3IS)
Cost around US$750 per wheel here in Singapore

Deliberating ................ gonna make a decision soon

If you can afford the forged Niche's, it's a no-brainer imo.

Never heard of NICHE.

That said, good to see another member from Singapore. Lived there for several years, loved it

Vossen VPS and Flowform have been "coming out soon" for a long time
Wish to get some official info on their launch dates, weight and price .....
But I know it will cost more than the Niche Forged Invert T73...

Vossen has marketed their brand to a point that people will pay for the name. I predict that their line of VPS wheels are going to cost in the range of HRE's wheels.

Because of the lighter weight ?
Because of Niche's quality ?
Because it is Made in USA ?

You are comparing forged to casted.

Vossens aret casted wheels made in Taiwan.
They snapped it on few super cars, take a few photo and people will pay for their name.
Very successful marketing strategy.

Niche is made by MHT which is the biggest wheels manufacturer in US.
They also made ADV1 wheels as well.

I would go for Japanese made cast wheels for that price
