Those gold ones are nice, I seen a guy have some of these on his quest, I think he said he paid like $650 each or something crazy for them.  They are 2 piece rims.  I agree they are bada@@ though!

I'm really wondering why people think Starion rims are strong..? They are made of soft aluminum and bend very easily. Almost any used set you get will need to be fixed if you want them to spin totally straight, especially on the backside of the rear rims they are prone to flat spots. Has manufacturing technology really not improved in 25 years to the point where an affordable rim is not at the level of an OEM wheel from 1987..?

dude our centers are forged and our barrels aren't suppose to be hard. if the spun barrels were hard, they would crack when you curbed them. you want soft barrels so they are take a hit and be repairable.

Understood, but I think people exaggerate quite a bit. The hit it would take to break the center on a rim... maybe sliding into a curb sideways at speed? Anything will be destroyed by that. My main concern is bent barrels. I've had other cheap rims that took a pothole hit much better than the stocks.

ahh I see.  maybe cheapos are heavier and have thicker barrels? aluminum hasn't changed much in 25 years.

Possibly, I will say that the stock are very light. I'm just trying to think about it practically. I've broke a lot of different types of rims but never the center part. Aluminum may not have changed much but the manufacturing processes must have in that time.

I wrecked an '88 SHP once. Three of the four centers were cracked but that was from flying off the road at 85 mph landing about 12' below the road surface.

A couple of years ago the Forgeline sponsored Mazdas in the IMSA or Pirelli series had the front rims fail coming down the Corkscrew.  That must have been embarrassing.

really like the clean look of this low cost wheel;  XXR 968  ebay. Starion friendly sizes & offsets iirc
I'm actually considering having a set custom narrowed, for staggered setup on another project

Thanks for sharing that, I might get a set of 17's for a starquest I'm resto-modding.  Those are exactly the look that Ive been looking for.
