I bought my 177's from Wheels and caps...correct offset and NO hubrings, the wheels are machined to the correct hub size (very Important!). 2 arrived with blems/minor defects. I spoke to the owner and they overnighted 2 new wheels, had them the next day. When I had the tires put on I had them spin the wheels and they were all great as far as balance. Boxes said "Keystone" on them, the tire guy recognised the name and said they've had very good experience w/them. Nice quality wheels, great company to work with and by far the best price. Highly recommended from my experience.

Let us know for sure what you think of the Michelin Latitudes....no one has really reported how good or bad they are and they are definitly an alternative (a much longer lasting one per the ratings) than the Diamaris. Very interested in your thoughts once you get used to them.

You posted that you were happy after they replaced the damaged wheels and that "I would highly reccomend purchasing your replica rims from WAC, it is a good deal and they won't leave out in the cold."

I'm just a little confused.

Please read the rest of those threads, that was before I noticed multiple quality control problems, and before I had even bolted them up to the car. Since then I have been experiencing ride quality issues.

Does AFS (edited) make the style rims you want? I bought the AFS (edited too!) Type 87's and love them!

AFE or AFS? If you mean AFS then it is my understanding that they only make Style 87, and they are made in China, but they are powder coated and cost a little bit less then Wheels and Caps. It sounds to me like most everyone was happy with the overall wheel and ride quality of the AFS Style 87 replica. In retrospect I now wish I went with AFS, but I do love the Style 177 look I must say. Hindsight is 20/20.
