I thought lowenharts are quality wheels plus there three piece so they are rebuildable but I hate seal issues with three piece so to me 2 piece is more durable, but price will always be the main concern.

Back in the day and read that as old school, these were prety nice looking wheels. Still is but there have been copies done and it doesn't get the recognition it once had. It went DUB style in big chrome and got played. I still find it nice but keep in mind I like the older VIP type styles. If you keep the car simple within that vintage in set-up, it fits. If you want a more contemporary look, pass on these.

Another thing to take into considearation is weight. While it is a 3pc wheel, it's still cast. If my memory serves me correctly, LD1's were quite heavy. I think in 20 x 9 they were just a tad under 40lbs. Not sure how correct that figure is but yeah, they're quite heavy in contrast to a fully forged wheel.

Meeting up the guy today! Bad thing is the wheels are 5x112 so I most likely gonna get adapters/spacers which I don't mind since on 5x114 wheels I need to run spacers to be flush anyway

your choice I just hate having to put adapters to make wheels fit because of the potential balancing issues.
