Agreed, 2-piece is really nice, especially when you hold 1-piece and 2-piece in your hands. I wish there was a 2-piece replacement option that wasn't stoooopid expensive. I know we can replace the Stoptech rotor rings but I destroyed my anodized hats when I had some PB blaster overspray (still fuming 1 year later).

Nice! I like the TD logo on the side of the lip, screams motorsport, dead sexy wheel and 18lbs I think.

These were given to a sponsored race team but they've moved onto ZE40s. So damn excited for original 5x112 TE37s.

Very nice wheels and specs!

If they don't fit I'll take them for you

Also, may I ask where you got them?

Not sure. Ever since I wasn't able to fit Advan RS on my car, I've been pretty hesitant on buying new wheels.

I got them on Vortex but I got there right when they were posted so it was more of right place, right time kind of thing.
