American Racing rims quality?

How is AR's quality? the set i'm interested in is the Burn in 22 inch



well I would love to get me some HRE, DPE, 360FORGED and WORK. AR has some very attractive pricing even in 22 and i like the above rims.

Can anybody that have own AR rims comment on their quality?

AR makes a lot of wheels - you shouldn't have any quality issues. They may not be the lightest wheels tho...

Give www.thewheelgroup.com a try, they just opened a location in Langley last Dec and has similiar wheels for cheap. Should be a great alternative from AR.
