They are inexpensive cast wheels, nothing too exciting. They will work but not sure how much of a beating they can take. They are on the heavier side as well (but not terrible for a 17x8.) Not in the same league as the fifteen52's or Team Dynamics posted earlier in the thread.

thats what i noticed. they arent too bad in weight, there are definitely lighter wheels out there, but they do cost a pretty penny. these are around the same weight as the svt 5 spoke rims, right? thats doable.



any more suggestions or options out there?

You can google the durability on grids, been around for a while and are offered for many different makes. I believe the 17x8's are ~19lbs.. I would take the Rota's over the e522's above but would still prefer to save more for a better wheel myself. Just 17x8 in 4x108 in an offset that isnt crazy, its hard to find.
