The K1s are certainly a good value for what they weigh.

I really like the way the K1s look too. I really wanted a set for my M3. People would always try and talk me out of putting such a "cheap" wheel on a bmw but they were light weight, low cost, good looking wheels.

If my neighbor already didn't have them on his miata I'd consider getting a set. Two sets of K1s on one block is too much

You can never have too many K1s.

Great wheels and that's a terrific price. I've had a pair of 15X7's for six years now and haven't had a problem. Real easy to clean and damn near bulletproof. I tagged a curb pretty hard once and thought I destroyed one. It ended up being a minor scratch.

I think you can get center caps still at Tire rack for about $6 a piece if this particular set doesn't come with them.

I love mine, I've had them since 2001-ish. I've hit some serious pot holes and never damaged them. Surprisingly strong for the weight. Mine are 16x7.5, +38mm offset. A tick more dish (0.25") than the 15x7 +38.

For the price those are great. If you are buying them new i'd try to find those 15x8 +32's. "Danscreations" has them i believe.

EDIT: I just looked at the sticker (all 4 still good after 7 years) and I have 16x7.5, +32 offset, not +38. Not that this matters much to this thread but I figured I'd post anyway.

I spent 500$ for mine with R's on them. Got some 15x9 6UL's coming for 225/45 R1R's.

Didn't really go all out on any part of the car, so I decided to get really nice wheels/tires.
