    Replica 17" AMG 3pc. OZ wheels

    Came across these on Ebay. I'm curious if anyone has experience with these. Not a bad looking wheel set for under $1k but I'm curious about the quality and how strong they are or if they bend easily.

    Re: Replica 17" AMG 3pc. OZ wheels

    nope no No NOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!! 99% sure made in China out of cheap alloy that barely passes QC. and HELL NO on $1K price! if they were half that i may consider them as daily wheels. i paid 1100 about 5 years ago for a set of genuine staggered one off craigslist (yes lucky) and even now i can find them under 2K...

    Re: Replica 17" AMG 3pc. OZ wheels

    They probbaly are made in China... the question is, what materials are used and are they a quality item? Everything is made in China these days, even these nifty-looking replicas:

    https://www.500eboard.com/forums/showthread.php?t=12546

    For the eBay set, it's odd they made this set a half-inch narrower than the AMG originals, and also that they didn't try to have a wider lip on the outside of the fronts. Probably trying to make them fit a wider variety of vehicles. Of course, the other question is, what brake calipers will clear these mystery wheels?

    Oh, and also: HOW MUCH DO THEY WEIGH!!

    I asked the seller if these are 3pc wheels and if the barrels are forged even though I already knew the answer.

    Nope, it is replicas

    Hmmm. If accurate (which I doubt), I'd be concerned about durability / safety. The real AMG's weigh 23-25 lbs each.

    There are almost zero wheels that size that weigh so little, which is interesting. The other possibility is they weigh a lot more than claimed. For years I saw claims that RENNtech's Monolites were upper teens (pounds) and when I finally got my hands on a set, they were low 20's, a good 20% difference between claimed weight and actual, on a calibrated digital scale. The fact that the weight claimed is in even kg increments (no decimal points) also points to inaccuracy.

    Anyway - at $1k/set delivered, who cares if they look nice and don't crack or break at Warp Factor 9!

    The real 3-pc aren't that heavy, but they are just average weight for the size. Some newer 18" AMG wheels are over 30 lbs each. (!!!)
