Are replica wheels lower quality than any other low end wheel?

Even if I saved up and bought the best used set of wheels I can afford, I'm still a student paying tuition and squirreling away a down payment for an apartment. A set of good quality wheels are in my future, but not my near future, so I just buy what I can afford.

The OP on MBWorld.org claims he was going 95kmh and slowed to 80-85 when he saw the change in the concrete which is when the rim decided to split into two pieces. Its apparently 88 km before Golden coming from Revy.

Theres alot of factors like tire pressure, speed, suspension to consider though. However the genuine wheels are used on +350KMH cars and cost almost 6,000 a set. So it will steer me away from these 1,000 dollar sets still..

Ezekiel 25:17. The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of the darkness. For he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know I am the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon you.
