Dramatic performance improvement over my stock 15"s, due to smaller tire.
Very nice, perfectly even finish.
Seem very sturdy and well built, no casting marks etc.
Finish is easy to clean, but see cons.
Less comfortable ride, again due to smaller tire.
Very hard to clean around the inner lip, and impossible without a proper brush around the small decorative nuts around the lip.
Overall I am very happy with this wheel. The handling of my car improved dramatically. Cornering stability is far improved, along with responsiveness. This is due to the change in tire size however. The rim is easy to clean except for the little lug nuts, and the painted finish doesn't easily show water spots. They look just as good now as they did a year ago when I put them on. I highly recommend waxing or sealing the rims to aid in keeping brake dust off and to make cleaning easier.
