Do you recall if they were on the heavier, or lighter side compared to stock wheels?

About the same.

Fresh from Tire Rack! Despite all the hoopla from the purists warning it would totally screw up my suspension, I went with the staggered 8/9 because it looks cool and I'm not trying to set any lap times. Havent had a chance to properly wail on em yet, but they felt nice and grippy driving home from the tire joint. For tires I went with the G force sport comp 2

These and Varrstoens are some of the worst attempts I've seen actually.

Spoke and face designs are wrong, and no TE comes with additional openings in the face around the hub. Varrstoen uses the 19" face on all their wheels, but the proportions are off. Rota is another discussion, as they just took the wheel and made them as concave as possible to where now they look completely retarded.

But whatever
Oh, brother....

Are some people just all bent out of shape because they spent $2-3K on wheels to hard park at the local meet and meanwhile they make almost
the exact same thing for a fraction of the price? The whole replica wheel issue thing is so ridiculous.

Last pic for decision makers since I'm trying to get rid of them for some extra cash.

Exactly. One group of people scream because a wheel looks like another one, while the next group screams that they don't look enough like another. Wheels, headers, just about anything/everything aftermarket is going to be a copy of something else, including OEM.

720Forms look good, but at about same price as RFP1s, and weight, will probably just consider the RFP1s.

The TRM's look good, but are quite heavy at 19lbs. I'll skip them, but they would be good alternatives to winter steelies.

Also curious if anyone minds having the tpms light on all the time? I check my tire pressure regularly, and don't plan on immediately getting tpms setup on the new rims/tires. But eventually moving over the stock adapters to the new rims. Anyone ever have an issue with the dealer during a service by not having tpms running?
