VY Berlina
I just bought a VY Berlina and want to eventually change my rims later on this year! i want the VE GTS rims! (ones pictured below) but i dont really want to pay 4,500 grand for them! i heard you can get copys for only about half that so was wanting to know if anyone has them or has had them and if they had any troubles with them??? and also where abouts in melbourne you could get a set from??? thanks

Ive seen copies going on Ebay, set of 4 i think was about $600-700..Which i thought was damn cheap and was almost about to buy a set, until a read a few threads on cheap knockoff wheels....

I heard the chinese copys are heaps dodgy. Especially the sig senator wheels. They crack right round the hub and some arent even perfect circles, so i have been told. Its so tempting, but id prob steer clear.

Also, price up the cost of tyres for them.

$800ish per rim for tyres;)

Another thing that can happen is that the face of the rim can seperate from the actual rim itself, due to the dodgy welding used to hold it together...I personally wouldn't go anywhere near them.
