Anyone have any experience with these cheaper replicas, good or bad? Better yet has anyone fitted them to a Red S3 and happen to have any pics?

I'm in the same Boat mate i'm after buying some Replicas but i'm worried there going to be Sh*t. I have heard
(off here) That if the replicas are form China there very poor Quailty and last a few month before Lacor/Paint finish starts to peel.

Apparently if the Replicas are Italian made there of better Quality and if looked after they last a hell of a lot longer. Years infact. Hopefully someone on here might be able to Verify this statement for us.

I'll see if i can find the Thread for you.

Hmm, i am currently trawling through the picture thread, have 10 pages left to go and have not found a red S3 with them fitted. I was thinking i might get them and have them sprayed local so i know the paint will be good.

The whole Italian vs China is bs to be honest.

Most (all) "Italian" wheels are made in **** somewhere and then packaged or just plainly shipped through Italy. One of the largest replica wheel distributors have an office in italy to compound this myth. Its often a sales tactic to tell customers that the wheels are made in Italy so the either don't buy from the competition who are honest or lead them to believe they are getting a better product.

See http://www.collectionoptional.it - These are the Italian replicas which are made in china.

You could get the wheel manufacturers to emboss "Made on the Moon" on the back of the wheels if you wanted. Most CH replicas have "Made in Germany" on them, they're clearly not made in Germany.

Dont be fooled is my advise. Its a long time since there was a major genuine player producing replicas wheels in Italy.
