One wheel is flat with internal ribs in the spokes, the other is concave without any ribs. Even the center cap shape (flush vs. raised) is different.

I would sooner say the rg63 was a lightweight, cheaper copy of an HRE P40.

The RG63 has very little to no concavity to it. I have seen them in person. They are nice wheels but I believe the VS8.2 is really what the RG63 could have been. The concavity is amazing in person and the only thing the RG63 probably has on it is a slight weight advantage.

The P40 has no concavity either. To my knowledge, there isn't really another wheel on the market, especially at this price point, that can match what the VS8.2 offers. Maybe the ADV1's come close in terms of appearance, but they cost more and I am not sure about their quality. I just don't have any experience with them.
