I'm pretty sure you can still buy them and HRE also has a cast wheel line called flow form cast. But whether they still make them or not is irrelevant to my point and statement about who makes or was making their cast wheel line. The point is what I said is correct about who makes these wheels and many other cast wheels that are currently on the market that people like and buy. If you don't like or are not interested in buying these really nice looking wheels please stay out of my thread. Thank you : )

I did some more research, as you requested, and I found another issue.

Brand new these things are about $2K and, assuming you have cheap tires to match these cheap wheels, I fail to see how you get to a sale price of $3K used?

What tires are you running anyway?

And yeah, I know you'd rather I not continue asking questions but, honestly, you should be thrilled I'm giving you all these bumps. Without me this post would have fallen off a cliff never to be seen again.

Luke, you need to move your bed to the other side of the room as, obviosly, you continue to wake up on the wrong side.

That's entirely possible. It's also highly likely that the seller is trying to cure a bad case of buyer's remorse on the backs of forum members.

Dude you're barking up the wrong tree. I'm a self proclaimed wheel whore who buys and sells wheels more than most people. I'm open to all offers and eventually the price goes down like all forum sales. Relax and go have some coffee and let the thread bump up on it's own organically by people who are interested. What's interesting though is that most people who buy anything I've sold on here never post on the thread and just call me.

By the way these are the limited Barcelona not the Monaco that you found which is a cheaper line. I also had them custom painted which costs money. Read my original post for the sale for details.

BUt I'll lower the price soon if it makes you feel better

One last thing then I'll go away....

No "wheel whore" would spend $2k on fake spit rims. I'm pretty sure this is your way to conveniently explain the fact that you're trying to unload these days after buying them. Did you not realize they were fake? Perhaps that's it.

Ok, I've said my peace.

Almost New XO Wheels Barcelona Custom Painted w/ Tires

I suspect there was some confusion about "one off" vs "knock off" (I.e. Imitation / replica) due to the term "one off" in the very first sentence of this thread.

Edit:
Ok. A one piece wheel with bolts is kind of cheesy. Kind of worthy of the GFYFW sticker.

The bolts are at least real bolts though.

"Exclusive Series:
1. One-Piece Casting with the actual removable hardware of a three-Piece wheel
2. Real Black Painted Rivets, Bolts & Nuts that can be removed & Custom Painted
3. Satin-Coated Machined Undercut Treatment which adds great detail & contrast"
