Similar to the BBS'??? Those are 19's, staggered and weigh 10-11 lbs more per wheel. No, they're not similar.

And I just noticed, made in taiwan. HELL NO, they're not similar lol.

The BBS wheel is also a forged wheel. These are low-pressure cast wheels. That's what makes them so heavy.

The cost of a 19" tire is higher also so there is no real savings.

Here is a the new Boss 302 wheel for sale. This is a 19x10, but there is a 19x9 front also available. It's much cheaper and these guys have an introductory sale price...

I just picked up a set for my 2011 GT that I'm building. I had the guys at Rehagen mount up a set of Continentals on the car with a lowering kit and it looks awesome! I'll see if I can't get a picture posted...

Forgot to mention... I got the tires cheaper than Tirerack because these guys race in the Grand Am series and get good deals on Contis. Although... I went with the Continental because it had the best feedback on Tirerack's website.

Those are likely 32lb 19x10 wheels like the others. The bbs is a 20lb, german made, 18x10'' forged wheel....that's why they're $600 each. Those new SVT wheels do look good though.
