Decent looking wheels, and easy to clean, but with some glaring issues that after a year leave me regretting ever buying them. When brand new, one of the wheels showed up so warped that my mechanic refused to put a tire on it. Tire Rack replaced it with another one that was *also* visibly warped. The fourth one finally was round enough to use.
The spokes on these wheels protrude significantly from the sidewall plane, which makes mounting tires on them somewhat tricky. We've also had to be ultra-careful about parking near curbs since there is no protection whatsoever from your tire sidewall if you get too close - I could see easily destroying one of these wheels when parallel parking.
After a few months of driving, one of these wheels cracked due to a relatively minor pothole hit. We replaced it with a new one but still have a lot of vibration in the car at speed. Tires and balancing all check out, so we're left with the wheels as the likely culprit once again. After only a year of ownership, will likely need to replace the full set with something else.
