Most of those replica wheels are poor quality and the chrome is not chrome its a paint except for the more expensive ones (Like american racing wheels) which are nickel plated and then chromed so make sure you know what you are buying.

Simmons wheels are designed for race applications so you cant go wrong and unlike most of the aftermarket wheels are made of good quality alloy.

BBS wheels are supposed to be good they are heat treated and if they are bent there is a bit more flex so that they dont crack.

Simmons only have up to 18 inch wheels as yet. They have 19s on the way later this year - the tooling is being built right now.

Stay tuned!
