I know some people have been quite upset over getting these and they look very different than the photos and the colors have been weird. If I get a set it will be the flat black/machined, not any of these goofy fast and furious colors.
I definitely have to use a front spacer however as they are a high offset front. Which adds weight when I can avoid that with a set of Advan RSII's. I am really torn on these two. Waiting to get more weight specs on the RSII. SA60's can be had now in 17, I just have to wait for them to come by slow boat from the motherland. Well... my car's motherland.
I think you might be right. They have some similarity to the OEM wheel in the spoke shape that I like. If you "fill" the space between the two spokes it will look a lot like the OEM 02+ wheel. But the more open design is lighter and allows better vision of the BBK.
However I am not sure if weds wheels are as well built or strong as the advans.
