Holy crap batman! Jon, you gotta quit putting all these new wheels out here, I'll never make my mind up!

I'm really liking these in chrome and 20x10's all around make it even more tempting. Will watch for actual photos...

Probably a dumb question, but...

what are the smaller six holes around the center where the lug holes are?

Six holes around the lugs... This is a five lug wheel...

Don't be mad, just having a little fun with you...

If you look at the BBS CH-R wheel you will see that these are a replica. The BBS have holes around the lugs as well. Perhaps they serve as a drain holes? Some wheels have a mounting surface that is not the full diameter, just enough material to provide strength for the lugs. The material between is milled out (or in the casting) and can trap water. This is just my theory...

I had a set of wheels that had these cavities on the mounting surface and it made it difficult to clean.

Back in the days, those holes had a practical purpose, which was to assist in alignment... Today, it's purely about aesthetics...

What finish did you order? I am ready to order but on the fence my car is also Summit White but with IOM stripes. I keep going back and fourth between chrome and black.

Know you didn't ask me, but I'm about to pull the trigger on a set of these in chrome.
