Default Work vs-xx knockoff's

Any one know of knockoffs, I just got myself a set of them. But i dont want to just the stock spare any more. Im wanting to run a full spare so I want to get one that looks like the vs-xx that are cheap and i dont have to worry about getting damaged in the trunk.

Any help would be great.

not really. theyve got less spokes and theyre spaced farther apart.

i cant think of ever seeing vs-xx knockoffs, and thats pretty surprising. i guess most companies focus on lm reps instead.

It is always a good idea to buy a set of 5. What if you bought a set when they still made them in 17" and you smashed one on a curb or busted it at the track, "out of luck" we only make them in 18" and 19" now. I don't know of a knock-off that looks very similar, but there must be something close. It's hard to spend $600 per wheel and get a set of 5, but it is worth it in the end. Those are still one of my favorite wheels. Hope you find something that works out for you.
