They are 18's though. They don't seem to be the ones in the picture, that's for sure.

Oh, I'm not. I was just looking to see what was online. I'm about to pull the trigger on a set of Iconz from Dan@TheModCity.

Yeah, I picked my car up late last week and just got the 1200 mile service done today. The weather has been crappy, though. I'm still waiting to see what the car is like over 4.5k RPM.

I emailed the seller and asked why the 18"s were less than 1/2 the price of the 19"s this was his reply; "Price difference relate with items fitting or preferential benefit, please watch about the commodity with sells the field details.It's HRE type rims,the brand is OEM.Best regards!". Interesting

Considering HRE only makes the P40 in 19 and 20 (maybe 21), yes it is too good to be true, not an official HRE wheel.

They do make an 18" P40 like track wheel for someone but this is an HRE type rim per the post above.
