They are very strong. I have them and could not be happier.

I wouldn't call them strong being that they are cast and they can have cracking issues, but they are one of the lightest if not the lightest cast wheel you can buy. I wouldn't worry about cracking them unless you plan on going off road on the racetrack or hitting curbs on the street. If you like them buy them.

Totally different league with way different price tags!

Also, personally prefer single piece forged rim over multi-piece forged rim.

I love them and they are a very strong cast wheel. Have run them sort of hard and even hit a few bumps on the track to straighten out and they held well.
Obviously not as strong as a forged wheel. My last set was VOlk RE30's and those were strong. But these aren't as weak as other cast wheels either. I've seen cracked forged rims before, not all wheel companies are the same.

What color do you want to see? I have silver on white if you want pics

Would love a pic of silver wheel on white car....also why not..when it comes to wheels is mainly about looks and lightweight for me...adn strength, i just never had a wheel crack or anything...so they are both light and if they both look good why not consider both....

not going to lie to you though, if i had the $$$, i'd get HREs...but for the cost, this is the best bang for the buck wheels.

LMAO! That's even a worst comparison since Civics are at least 1/3rd of an M3, haha!
