Hey guys,

I started a new thread since the old one formed in the Canada section and I thought this would be easier for searching.

I ordered these from Power Wheels Pro last week. Order was placed on 2/13, they shipped from Michigan on 2/17, and arrived in Philly today 2/20. For those who haven't done business with PWP yet, they're very professional with great communication throughout. Wheels were $500 with $85 flat rate shipping. Wheels also came with VW centercaps and if necessary, they include hub rings as well.

Specs:
Wheel Size: 18x8
Bolt Pattern (PCD): 5-112mm
Wheel Offset: +45mm
CB: 57.1
Finish:Black Machined Face
Shipping: $85
PRICE/SET:$499


On to the pics:

Good packing


Griffen is scoping them out




Beautiful! The finish on this set is very similar to the stock Detroits. Gloss black inside, with a polished face. This isn't the finish that the OEM wheels have, but I'm planning to powdercoat them gloss black anyway.

Weight: 26.4 lbs according to the bathroom scale

That is a very nice looking wheel. For the price you can't go wrong, just wish they were lighter.

That's a pretty damn good price! Not the lightest wheels, but still a couple of pounds lighter than Detroits, and I think they look better too. Those will look great on your TR car.

Thanks guys, just looking for some powdercoating quotes now. Seems like it's around $300 for the set.

Looks great man, for sure going with these when I get wheels. Any idea if the hub rings are necessary, I remember from the last thread that there seemed to be confusion as to what bore these are.

Still TBD. I haven't done a test fit yet, but PWP said that the wheels are 57.1.

They look awesome, believe it or not thats what I was going to do to my OEM rims before painting them but I thought it would be too difficult/expensive. You going matte or gloss? Look forward to seeing the result!

I was looking at those wheels also. Do you have a picture of the center caps they supplied? Did you try to fit the oem ones?

Hhhmmm, this is concerning.

I started out thinking about these wheels from the same thread but after getting several quotes from local powder coaters at $300+ which is ridiculous, I switched to a different one that comes painted/coated already.

They told me both these wheels and the other ones I am considering were 23 pounds, yet yours weigh in at 26.......my Motegi's are 23.4 and I am not looking to add 12% more weight on each corner back on.......
