I've seen a set in person, and they looked great. I don't know why he'd sell them that cheap.

I would see what the catch is if they are selling them that cheap. is he driving with them on right now? If not check to see any damage or a bent rim maybe!

Yea I have been dying for the 18's, but the cheapest I found them was around 500 and that included a trade for the 17's. This deal may sound great, but something seems fishy

Those things must weigh a ton. I'd stay away myself. Found some aftermarkets that weigh 18lbs and are 18x9.5. Car rides sooooo much better with lighter wheels.

<-- Guess which ones quicker?.....Nope! Not even close.

You think that little chrome adds a lot of weight? I'd guess it's next to nothing.

Chrome does add weight, it is generally multiple layers of metal added to an aluminum wheel. how much, who knows but it sure looks nice
