I'm not sure I agree XXR is not a good brand and are probably not very safe some of you should really think about it you def get what you pay for

There was a thread on Supraforums that mentioned XXR was owned by a company that made a lot of OEM wheels for various car companies. Supposedly they're good wheels for how cheap they are.

Every wheel can bend and/or break, and expensive brands are no different. If you're gonna run low profile tires, lower your car, and hit curbs or potholes...somethings gonna give. If you run factory matched sizes and tires you shouldn't have a problem, or at least should be much safer. XXR is a big brand, and they are definitely not skimping out on safety.

I was doing some research on these wheels and found some info on XXR. Here is the link: http://www.carid.com/xxr-wheels/968-black-17186548.html

If you scroll to the bottom it says this:

"XXR Wheels has since 1976 specialized in design and manufacture of aluminum alloy wheels, providing OEM wheels for a range car manufacturers and custom wheels for the aftermarket. The two factories of XXR now produce over 2.4 million wheels per year. 60 percent of the production is sold to Japan, 20 percent to the U.S.A. and the remaining 20 percent is distributed all over the world. As wheels are key to road safety, XXR has made quality the main objective in their manufacturing process. The production is ISO and QS certified according to the ISO 9002 and QS 9000 standards. The factories have also been qualified to meet the Japanese VIA standard on quality testing, which assures that every wheel leaving the factories meet the rigorous testing standards of VIA. The wheels are tested for radial impact resistance, impact resistance at different angles and resistance to bending forces. The quality controls implemented by XXR go way beyond what is required by rules and regulations, reflecting the XXR ambition to deliver the best wheels in the world."

I may get a set for my other LS430. They have some aggressive sizes available for the 20 inch version.

At least we don't drive status cars like GTR's where you pay $6000 for ugly RAY'S.. I don't think they are bad for what they are but I personally will always like the Equip over almost anything.. But I also would not pay close to $3000 for them

man, i hate it when people spread these ridiculous rumors. I can also attest that XXR's are in-fact great quality rims because i have been rocking them for 2.5 years on my daily driven SC400 through pothole ridden Chicago streets and they are holding up great.
