I've heard these are a good choice because theyre light weight.

I collected a set of these (they are in demand, and not dirt cheap); the slight downside of them is that they may have some tendency to crack. I bought one with a crack, which was discovered after I stripped the dead clearcoat. The seller refunded my money, and I had a place in Cincinnati that is well-regarded repair and balance it for a little less than a fair-condition used rim. Note that "curb rash" is not that easy to fix on these so start with good ones.

The clearcoat always seems to die on these, becoming gray and cloudy; I stripped them, and here is how they get the clearcoat to "stick" to bare aluminum; the surface is "shiny", but ridged on a very fine level. After stripping, I polished mine to very shiny bare aluminum, removing this ridging. We shall see if this was a good idea - but these will be "summer-only" wheels, anyway.

They are a good choice for Volkswagen Vanagons / Westfalia campers... they bolt right on and those van guys are nuts (ask me how I know).

I sold two sets on The Samba last year.
