      Thread jack:

      Apparently Varrstoen makes a CCW knockoff in 15x9 +25 5x100 under the model name V3, available for sale here:
      http://www.norcalautostylez.com/product-p/w-var-v3-13.htm and here: http://unleashedwheels.com/varrstoen-v3.html

      I asked Speedfactor if they could bring this in but they said the wheel doesn't exist. Looking at the Varrstoen site, the V3 model is not listed so it looks like SP is going off what's listed on the website. The nearest one to the V3 is the ES 7R which only comes in 17 & 18". Can anyone confirm if the V3 is actually made by Varrstoen or if it's a discontinued model? With this ambiguity I was really hoping to buy locally so I get the right specs. Any other leads on 5x100 15x9/10/11 wheels would be awesome.

        Probably discontinued. It's on Varrstoen's blog, but in 2013. You could just call Varrstoen, which is what I would have done if I were a shop sourcing something.

        XXR makes a CCW Classic inspired wheel as well, called the 531, available in 15-19" sizes.

          Here is an interesting video on imitation wheels.



          It's just not worth the risk.  :hurr:

            That's ridiculous, it's an ad for Mercedes OEM parts. Quality has nothing to do with "legitness", though provenance does give you an idea of where the bar should be. With pretty much any wheel you buy that is at least designed to a JWL/VIA standard, you have a base level of safety that is perfectly appropriate. If you are buying from a high end brand, you are more likely to have better than good quality, perhaps even exceptional quality.
