Honestly? I think they look a little cheap in the pics, maybe different in person.

Which wheels have you taken off?

They certainly look different, I think I could get used to them after a while :)

Sorry not for me. Look a bit like the M wheels from a distance, but not so much closer up.

I like them, but not the way they appear to stand proud of the tyres. Just ripe for kerbing!

They look like a cheaper version of the M wheels - not floating my boat for what its worth.
