I am sure there are a few people who would get these. Not everybody are into light and function. Some like the looks more than function. Just saying.

function > form any day!

I could get lighter wheels for cheaper...that, to me, seals the deal

Sure. That's how a lot of people are. I don't know how to say it so it sounds polite but in america style was always taken over by function. Most american cars are still ugly as hell because people in US don't care about the style. Many business people go to office wearing $10 running shoes. Not like that in other countries where style much more important.

totally was not planning on taking this conversation off topic.

I hate how they put those fake bolts around the outside like they are 3 piece wheels or something. My gay *** sportmax had those, but I popped them all out and painted the rhimz black.

True. Still, $720 is pretty expensive for knock-offs.

You can buy sportmaxx wheels like those for $500 and know the quality you are getting not super great but better than unknown. Personally I would buy something different for that much money you could even get a really really nice set of used wheels for that cash.

I'm all for good looking wheels, but dear god...those things at the top are ******* hideous. Who the hell wants to run wheels like that and be taken seriously????

I'm all for cheap wheels, but they have to at least be decent looking.

this thread is funny.

OP: next time just buy them for yourself if you like them and don't share your innermost secret thoughts with the opinionated jokesters here.

Sweet find. As long as I can be hella stance'd on my poser rims, cost and quality are not among my concerns.

Lolin @ those fake bolts.
