I believe there is a correlation between "Made in China" and "$520 shipped to your door". So I don't see that as a negative.

Looking dang nice!

So much GAS!! (I just spent +$3k on various toys the past 2 months though)

Now, if only there was as nice a replica of an OEM hardtop for a similarly awesome bargain/deal

Frankly, it was the only negative I could find at this point. I’d rather have them made in the US or Japan. It’s just less suspect, regardless of experience in this case.

Thanks. I think it takes the car up a notch in appearance as well. I’m pretty stoked to have some good tires on it. Just need to drive a few hundred miles to get the release agent worn off. I also spent a chunk of change on a carbon fiber OEM replica AP1 lip from Seibon. No bargain deals on those worth a darn IMO. If I see a good replica hardtop for $520 shipped, I’ll let ya know right after I buy one

I will likely order this same set of wheels this week. But I'm leaning towards the G-Force Sport Comp-2 tires.....never mind, after more research and given the price difference I will likely go with the Pilot Supersports instead

Well I did find this fiberglass top that is not a replica but is only $719. Who wants to try it first and report back? https://www.carid.com/duraflex/type-...pn-106096.html
Or the carbon fiber replica for just over $1k, does not come with glass though... https://www.carid.com/carbon-creatio...pn-109615.html

Default Replica wheel weights

My set of replica wheels came in this week. I weighed them using my bathroom scale before mounting the Pilot Supersports.
Front wheel weight: 18.8lbs
Rear wheel weight: 22.2lbs
I recorded the weigh in:

front: 18lbs 5oz
rear: 22lbs 3oz
