Anybody have experience with replica Detroits?

When I first got my GTI, I curbed two of my wheels pretty good on the edges. I'm one of those people that love the look of Detroits espeically when they're clean and polished. Would it be stupid to buy a replica Detroit? They look 100% identical to the OEM ones and most of these websites that sell them have positive reviews. Anybody have any experience with these?

I'd rather buy a new set and style of wheels instead of buying a new OEM one.

you can find used detroits everywhere pretty cheap, wouldn't waste money on a rep that might be poor quality

here are 4 Detroit with tires for $400

Edit* Just read he has curb rash so thats probably not for you. But used sets of detroits come up all the time and they usually are around ~$400.
