Hmm ... that's pretty cool.  I actually don't mind the bolt showing.  Almost seems too good to be true.  I wonder what the quality is.

The price is what makes me think it might actually be true... but the company website doesn't give me feelings of "This is legit". But the $4,000 price tag does, it seems to be about the right price.

Those would look outstanding with the deep lip on the rear, and a small lip on the front.   I would like them without the bolts showing...

Someone needs to be the first to order them . I think everyone is waiting for a guinea pig to step up so we can all see the outcome.

I just bought a GMT Root Beer 126711CHNR, so I can't afford wheels currently. :P

Looks good. I would have 5 different lug nut locks on each stud. Wheels would be worth more then the car.

I have a picture some where of someone who widened the stock wheel by an inch or 2. Have to look for that. It looked really good.

I looked into it a while back and there are companies willing to make our wheels out of single billet aluminum for 4k a set. But, like what was posted earlier, that is more than what many paid for our cars. Personally, I would want that more than a three piece rim.

Kinda cool, that lip is a bit too big for my taste.  I'd rather wheels in a larger size but same proportions

this 5 spoke is already a sharp looking wheel imo. Helluva deal ~$800 a set for 17 or 18s, various widths
I'm thinking u could approach the manufacturer to have starion replica centers made, and weld them into the same barrel
...or have another wheel manufacturer make the centers/weld them into barrels sourced from like above
once u figure on widths, diameter, offsets and final pricing.... group buy ?
just thinking possibly a lower cost approach
