Question What do you think of these rims?

Hey guys,
I found this staggered setup on ebay from a guy that has a perfect feedback record. They're Axis Milano's in polished/silver with highly polished lips. 19x8.5 in front with 19x9.5 in back with 245/35/19 in front with 275/30/19 in back (Hankook Ventus). He says he has front and rear in stock with 45mm offsets for $1849 shipped.


So I have 2 questions:
1) Is this a good deal for the wheel/tire combo? I haven't heard anything good nor bad about Axis wheels. So anyone with prior experience would be of great help.
2) Is the 45mm offset for front and back appropriate? Or should they ideally be another number?

Thanks in advance for any input!

PM a member named PHML he has those same wheels, but a different tire brand, he could probably give ya the best idea. He has had the wheels for a while now, and I hear the roads in Hawaii are terrible, so he can definitely tell ya how strong they are as well. I figure PM in case he does not want to disclose the price he paid on the public forum

Just remember, what you pay for is what you get. The tires are great as I have the Ventus sport k104's in my rear tires.

Axis is not HRE or Symbolic. However, it is a sold wheel that you will be happy with and will look good on your GS.


Are they new or used.

I am waiting to receive new Hankook / Ventus tires myself, and they are solid aulity.

Good Luck.

I have seen many a thread concerning bent/damaged Axis rims after only a short period of time.
