Some of the wheels do have a very nice design to them. Welcome to the forum by the way!

Sorry, you may have misunderstood me, or I just miss-spoke. I like to hear good things about companies offering aftermarket goodies so I would be more inclined to use them in the future seeing as how so many online shops try to rip you off.

Yeah, I think they would look better if they were concave instead of convex. Just my opinion.

I agree with that. They would be more appealing.

I believe they are available both in flat-face and convex depending on the application..
