    These LV5's have been good wheels for me. I think I bought them new from TR in 2009. I have used them as Summer wheels with the OEM tires on two vehicles, (2008 Nissan Altima & 2011 Honda Accord)and plan to use them as Winter wheels on a 2013 Accord. I have about 40 K miles on them. They look great, and with the hub rings sent along by TR, they fit well. While they get scratched up less than other wheels I have had, given their design, you still have to watch out for curbs, etc. They are bit difficult to keep clean, but given their grayish black color, you cannot see the dirt brake dust much anyway, unless you get up close.

    I purchased these wheels to wear some Michelin Snow Tires. They look fantastic on a silver Volvo V70R. However...within three months both front wheels incurred serious bends in the rim as a result of hitting some potholes here in town (not on the mountain). This has never happened to the stock pegasus wheels for the V70R. Yah, it could be bad luck, but the fact that two are bent and need to be fixed leads me to believe they are made of a "soft" alloy that just can't cope. If you have great roads these look great and are a good value; if your roads are suspect you may need to keep searching.

    Great color combination with my Arctic white coupe- a real dark gunmetal metallic gray if you can't tell from Tirerack's photos. Quality of fabrication and paint appears high but, on one wheel one small debris contamination piece painted over leaving a noticeable dimple. Balanced out well and run straight with Continental Extreme Contact DWs. Brake dust just dosen't show...but its there and demands routine cleaning of course. Long term durability unknown at this time. Super tight fit on hub housings and provided lug bolts are silver which don't compliment the overall appearance. I hand painted the exposed bolt heads once wheels were installed.
