Cool Eurotek 02 Wheels - Better RTRs

Haven't seen these posted anywhere. Just wanted to throw it out there as cheaper and better fitting option than RTR's.



http://www.elementwheels.com/proddet...d=eur-021995mb

these are 19x9.5 and you can get them staggered with 19x8.5 front. And the 19x9.5 comes in a 40 offset which is much better than the RTR wheels 33 offset. and they are almost $50 less per wheel.

personally i like them (not a huge fan of the center cap but thats any easy fix). when i get some stuff paid off, i may have to pick some up.

Problem with an unknown brand like this is you don't really know the quality of the build or the finish. And they really aren't that cheap.

so you like your wheels more tucked? hence why you say better offset? i like wheels sitting more flush so lower offset would do it for me. never the less the wheels look nice, just worried about quality. like you said $200 is $200 but hopefully the company making these wheels wasnt thinking the same thing with their quality when building. ive learned from my mistakes, sometimes cheaper isnt always better.

I like my wheels to not go beyond the fender and look like total garbage..like the RTR have the possibility for it to stick out past the fender with larger tires..To me if there is even 1/8" of tire beyond the fender it would make me NOT buy that product. Also dont like running 9.5" at all 4 corners

the RTR wheels dont sit flush. they stick out just a little bit.

think about it. most manufacturers make 18x10 wheels that have a 45mm offset. that sits pretty flush. a 9.5" wheel with a 38-39mm offset would sit just as flush. with a 33mm offset, the RTRs are basically 5-6mm further out than they should be. it may not seem like much, but its noticable.

i guess you failed to read the 5 replies why above..to alot of people they are better because it has a better offset for the rear of 40mm so the tire wont stick out past the fender and look like crap..Plus you have the option to run 8.5 up front as not everyone wants 9.5" wheels at all 4 corners..Those were 2 main reasons I didnt buy RTR's the #1 reason was the 33mm offset.
