Only car **** addicts like us can tell the difference. But to the average guy. They all look the same. I have the xxr521 wheels and I get tons of compliments on my car. Most of these ppl that compliment my car wouldnt know a single thing about wheels, let alone the brand of the wheel or even the specs. Heck, the other day some guy asked me how I got my wheels so perfect. I told him that my car has a 18x10 in the rear with a 25 offset and he looked at me and said, whats an offset?"
I know exactly what you mean, heck when people see my rims the first thing they ask "PIAA, don't they make headlights, when did they start doing wheels", when I say this I'm bragging but I got these wheels in a ugly plasti dip job and paid $350 for the set. Only car chodes get raged out when they see these cheap alternatives, sorry but I'm glad they make them let the over priced brands get knocked down a few pegs. Plus got can't tell me the overpriced jdm brands are completely made in their factories they are subject to the same laws of business figure out a way to sell the product at the highest profit and utilize the cheapest means possible I wouldn't be surprised if they were getting Chinese barrels and doing the final machine work. I've seen it done so many times in other business*arenas and no one is the wiser.

the middle one loks the best since it has a good sized dish in the back, im guessing the brz has a little bit of a stretch or something. Hopefully some more pics float up with meaty fitment

I agree, they arent looking as good as I thought. The G35 pulls it off the best. But as of right now the real deal looks better. These are ehh

The stepped lip on the varrstoens just make them look so much better. The xxr's don't look right on a car...

They do look kind of weird to be honest. I like the big lips though.
