Price is ultra-premium!!! Too rich for me.

They look like they belong on the new Camaro and Challenger not on a Porsche/BMW. I would love to see a PASSED JWL/VIA, TUV or SAE/DOT test on this wheels. Ask any experienced wheel manufacturer and the design of those spokes and the point where the center is bolted is structurally/mechanically a disaster. The greater the concavity the greater the strain on the spokes. They do look good but concavity can only be so much. At the angle those spokes are designed they are meant to fail unless they could provide FEA testing drawings/data or the results of a certified testing lab showing otherwise and that we could confirm.

But again, this is where the majority of 3PC wheel manufacturers are lacking. Most just machine a center, bolt in on two barrels and call it a wheel. There is no engineering at all.

Also, $9,000/set? Please...
