really not going to find them cheap (as i have found out)...

you've got two options

- Wait to find a used set in somewhat crappy condition for about 500-600 and then invest another 400-700 (big range depending on if you widen them etc)

or wait to find a set that someone else refurbished and are in good condition which will run you about 1200-1500 with tires

i dont know...feel better about the fact that they offer et20 now....but its still a replica wheel. Up close you can definitely tell the difference....but the bolts are actually real and bolt through the wheel which is cool.

yah definitely...they would poke a little, but i think it would look good. The problem with the et35 is they are lacking in lip...the extra 15mm is just a nice little addition of lip

you think its wide enough (7) for our cars? I thought the wheels have to be pretty wide for our cars to run low et safely. If ET20 is no problem at all, Hmmmmm

It will definitely poke out and cause rubbing issues if you're not careful......so its not EASY....but could be done. Think about it.....if you want to run the et35, these only stick out 15mm more which is just a little over half an inch. Wider wheels would definitely be better.....but 7's are alright


The real things.....absolutely beautiful finishes
