It's the absolute best looking wheel out there in my opinion. It combines everything I'd like in a perfect wheel: step lip, concave, and a lip. If you can afford them, I'd go for them. Don't listen to the ******* above.

Hey if you are into a bling bling heavy set of street wheels, more power to you.

I personally think your hard earned cash can be spent better elsewhere.

Those seem to be the regular 5.1. with the lightening package as seen by the groves. Like you said, Trak Spec. Does that answer your question?

If you like that style, you might as well get it from the source, MHT. Since ADV doesn't even make their own wheels, they are made by MHT.

Probably get MHT brand dub1 or Niche for cheaper and exactly the same quality.

Agreed 100% and as for it being called "track spec" I dont completely agree with it since concave split wheels tend to heavier than traditional flat faced or convexed split wheels, but I just take the track spec part as just a name for the design of the wheel centers.

Just keep in mind that built by MHT and built at MHT aren't the same thing. The only thing MHT has to do with our production is that we lease time on their lathing/milling machines to run our forgings. We program our engineering files into them, engineer the files ourselves, run our proprietary fitments and designs (for example no other manufacture runs our step lip Track Spec design where the spoke runs out over the step lip), etc. All ADV.1 orders are pulled off their production floor and taken to our own section of the MHT facility where assembly and production is finished.

Hope that clears it up a bit better.

Being an engineer myself and knowing you dont have an enginering staff, who does the finite element analysis on the wheels? You can build the wheel in Pro-E and upload the CAD file to the machine for manufacturing, but are the models meshed and analyzed for stress, creep, fatigue, fracture, lifing, etc? Who does the NDE testing? Who is responsible for quality control? I like the wheels, but my detailed nature has me asking many questions.
