Default Hubcap Haven. Anyone ever use them?

Check these out. I just saw these a minute ago and wanted to know what all the wheel gurus think.

http://www.hubcaphaven.com/mm5/merch...egory_Code=469

I like the style of these OEM Nismo wheels and the price seems very reasonable.

Thoughts? Please no flaming. Constructive comments are appreciated. They also have GTR wheels.

Thanks for the warning zapperoni. I already had it on.

It was just a question to see what your thoughts were, or if anybody purchased from this vendor. They advertise the wheels as being refinished or used but nothing definitive. A quick google search for "350Z wheels" showed their site and I checked it out.

So you have experience with them....Was the wheel refinished by them? Was it an actual oem wheel? A replica? Did you get a front 18" or a 19" rear? Any info on the actual product and transaction would be great!

I just called them and they have 0 in stock and get maybe 2 or 3 of the Nismo wheels a year. They are not replicas. They also had 0 of the newer
18x9/19x10 GT wheels in stock.

Well give them a call and get yourself some wheels. Plenty photos here of these wheels on a no-NISMO Z. Looks hot.

Figures. A wheel gets a ding. They buy and fix it. A set of 4 will be difficult to come by.

It was wishful thinking at $200 each for those. Oh well.
