215 style reps in 21 or 22"?

Anyone know of a company that makes 215 style replica wheels in either 21 or 22" size?



Thanks

Here's a set... but I'd probably buy used OE vs new replica. Search around though, I doubt these are the only sellers. There's a set of used OE wheels in the great white north ATM...

I would advice buying replica wheels as you do not know how well they are casted. Poorly casted rims may bend or crack very easily and may be hazardous to safety. But that's just a heads up!

Since 'reps" are actually COUNTERFEITS, they are made by unknown plants in 3rd world countries; sold by fly by night vendors...nobody has any skin in the game. A wheel fails, who cares? Nobody is getting sued, cause nobody knows who made them- or they are made in countries without laws or people without assets.


IMO the best assurance of quality one has with wheels is the depth of the pockets of the people that make them- simply put, they are protecting there own a$$es by having a robust quality system.


I run my HREs at 160mph, slide them around the track...and dont have a care in the world. (about the wheel failing....you worry about other stuff..




YMMV

Viktimize is an unknown quantity at this point
This isn't 1990 anymore. I would have zero issue buying a Chinese counterfeit nowadays. A lot of times their quality is just as good or better than big brand names. Because big brand names have their own product manufactured in China now. Buying direct from China just cuts out the middle man who is marking stuff up 1000% to sell it to you here in NA.
