You know what I think the issue is? It's the fact that there are so many VMR wheels out there on our cars. Of course you'd see the most stories about them.
For every genuine set of wheels I see in General, there are about 5-10 guys running reps.

Call Eagle Alloys and ask for the 2012 sales figures on their "18 inch CSL".

Re: Ebay VMR V710 Reps?

Is it just me or do they look like the VB3's...not the 710's

Either way, don't buy them.

I don't think the reps are worth it my friend had his reps crack on autox. Very scary.

I would buy genuine wheels, either real CSLs or BBS, if they were't over 20% of the cost of my car.
