When I received these wheels, I was happy to see that they looked just like they did in the pictures on the Tire Rack website. Furthermore, once installed, they looked just like the "view on vehicle" feature. I was very happy with this, because to me, this was one of the biggest risks of buying these wheels online. One minor thing that I did not pick up on from the picture (that really isn't a big deal for me) is that the centre cap was navy blue. I had assumed that the centre cap was black with a white "S," like the other wheels. FYI, it looks like the silver Sparco wheels have the navy blue centre cap as well.
The gold paint was fairly evenly distributed, but I did notice a few areas where it looked like it was spread a bit thin and you could see a bit of the white primer coat underneath. To me this wasn't a big deal because it was only in-between the spokes near the hub, but nevertheless I still noticed it.
I haven't driven on these wheels for very long, but the quality of the manufacturing seems solid. Overall I'm very happy with my tire and wheel package.
