Default Opinion on XXR wheels

I was looking for some 17x8.5 wheels and found some XXR 518s. They are significantly cheaper than any other 7x8.5.

Anyone have any experience with them? Quality decent?

I'm still not sure I like the design, but I like the idea of getting 255/40s for autoX fun.

They're no heavier than a rota torque.

If you look at my thread I am using the XXR's and I have no problem with them. I have the 18x8.5 w/ 245/40/18's anyway no problems here with XXR and everyone has a different budget so do what you like. also just a quick note 255's equals rolled finders and i had to roll mine with 245's with 35 offset.. I also asked the guys that I bought my rims from to come and post some specs on XXR's for you on the forum.
