No love.

Not concave at all, too busy. Very un-German looking.

Willing to bet they are heavy-ish too, 28lbs or so.

There really needs to be a "Meh" voting option.

On what color car? In what size?

Anywhere we can see a full side shot with front and rear look?

No love.

IMO the thin quality of the spokes feels too dainty on that big of a wheel.

Seen them in person. No love. They are too big for the car + no concavity = wagon wheel.

I thought they were 20lbs...they are apparently forged.
I think they're butt butt ugly...but that price for forged rims is great, I saw them for $2200 somewhere and was appalled.

I think they look good on darker paints, they make the calipers pop too if painted as well.

20x8.5 for a rear wheel is a bit of a silly size too. Makes them look like wagon wheels.

I am doing 19x10 for the rears
