ive seen those in real life on a CTS, they look just liek CTS V wheels, except chrome. I really like them. Too bad they are 1800 for a set of 18's!

sorry for my confusing post, they make it in 18 and in 20, the ones on the STS are 20. I was interested in the 18 for my CTS, as ive loved the V wheels and this came pretty close. Dealer wanted 1800 for the 18s. :alchi:

I've been trying to get the same wheels that i currently have on the car in 19x10 for the rear without any luck until recently. This is what i've found. Wheels that are currently on my car was forged by app for acari racing and they sold the design to hanman. Hanman currently sells these wheels for 1700~2000+/wheel :cookoo:

The reaon Vogue's are over priced is because you get a 4yr warranty.....
I also love the lip look, but when i had the MC2 RT21's on my car the wheels looks so much bigger without the lip..... Now I have 5 inches of lip...Mixed emotions....

I agree with you that they do tend to make the wheel look larger. DS your wheels look pretty tight. I'd stay with them. That kinda cash would pay for those Hugger Headers/cats. At least that makes your car faster.

I have a quick tip for ya'll on wheels. Did you know that wheel designs are not patented? Thats why you see so many wheel companies that have the same designs. So those Vogue wheels that cost 2-3 grand, I'll go buy the same design for $1000, and all I have to do is buy the center cap from Vogue, and noone can tell the difference.

Might want to think about that before you spend a butt load on a set wheels simply because of brand name...

design might be the same but manufacturing process/quality/specs varies.

Quality and specs may vary slightly, but not to the piont to triple the price.

A close friend of mine is a manager at a custom auto shop, and he never recommends buying a name brand wheel company simple because of the cost. He can find you the same design and quality for a much better price.
