That they are, but i wasn't talking down on cast wheels, im just saying the ones the OP put up originally looked cheap. Nothing wrong with a nice set of cast wheels, ie Vossen, Velgen, Forgestar, Vorsten etc list goes on. Im sure you know there are different levels of quality when it comes to cast wheelsThe factory wheels on the Q50 are cast. Smh
Good advice! Im on the hunt for one as well but havent had any luck with the offsets I like! Even the cf ssr center caps are a pain in the butt to find! :-(im a wheel nut so i guess i look at things differently. nothing wrong with a set of cast wheels.
OP, with 114.3 bolt pattern your used wheel options are HUGE! for 1000-1500 you can get a nice set of used wheels. Don't get me wrong, theres nothing wrong with cast wheels. Shoot even HRE has a line of cast wheels.
Just saying you'll be paying at least 1k for those wheels right? you can get a nice set of wheels for that price.
Check out zilvia.net classified for wheels, g35 drivers classifieds, vrwheels, and you can even find deals on craigslist.
Personally I would get a set of 3 piece wheels used (iForged, DPE, Works etc), put a little time refinished/fixing them throw them on the car.
