nice work Zaharias. WIthout the centre caps they do look like the APEX's. First time I saw the APEX's i thought they were copy of the RC's.

Are you going to be running with the centre caps?

Hi infini!!! Thank you my friend!!!

Im gonna keep them without center caps.. I don't like the RC center caps.. I like it on yours which are very concave.. And iam searching for center caps just to cover the bearing whole..

I love them for several reasons..
They are stamped inside, manufactured date 1997!!!!
Even though they are 8,5 they do have a small concave (you can't see it very good from the pics)..
They are super light.. I weight one "naked" and it was 7 kilos (15,4 lbs i think)!!! They are very light for 18s..
They look good (remind me of the OEM CSLs).. I like the custom paint..
2 months i was dealing with them.. I did all the prep work, they were like sh*t.. lots of oxidation.. and a friend painted them..
+ they weren't bend.. They are not balanced at all and you don't feel anything even at 120km.. (the M5 reps, started shacking @ 80km)..!!!!
And i really love them with the spacers.. It looks like a track set up!!!
