Smile Staggered Chrome Saleen Style Wheel & Sumitomo Tire Kit - 18x9/10 (05-12)

I am strongly considering purchasing the Staggered Chrome Saleen Style Wheel & Sumitomo Tire Kit from American muscle. Has anyone purchased this set and if so how did they like it.

My biggest concern is the rims apperance and overall quality. I currently have bullets and hope that i will be more than satisfied with this upgrade. Has anyone owned these rims for a few years? If so how have they held up to wear and tear?

Thanks for everyones help!

Jon

I've had the 18' chrome Saleens setup before but mine where authentic wheels and I payed a hefty price. I've seen the replicas and most of them are damn close to original quality. I currently have the 18' black Saleen setup and those are replicas. The chrome and black definitely offer two totally different looks.

18s are as big as I would go on a pre 05, they just look to big if you go any bigger than 18s on those years.
