Default Some questions about MB Weapon wheels

I'm considering the MB Weapon wheels. Price is right but I haven't heard much about them. Does anyone have these wheels? How do you like them? Are they hub-centric or will I need centering rings? Are they heavy? Is the finish pretty durable?

Thanks!

I just placed my order from discounttire on MB weapons in 18x7.5. They are made in japan by a company called A-tech and are rebadge to sell in the US. I think only discounttire are the only authorized resellers of them. I heard they are like 20.4lbs for the 18" wheel.

Do you know if they are hub-centric? I've been reviewing old threads on these wheels and they seem to be getting good reviews from owners. The only thing I haven't been able to find in the older threads is whether they are made for 56.1mm hub or whether I'll have to get some rings for them.

they are not hub centric, but discounttires said they will come with hubcentric rings for my wrx included at no charge.
I also got the tire hazard warrenty for an extra $50 and they said they only need a picture of the damage and do NOT need to send the damaged tire to them.
