I think it's awesome... :P

Just wish they made them in a 4x114.3...

But at +25, some 25mm adapters would get them up to a zero offset, so... :mrgreen:

They don't really look anything like proper Sakuras.

That said, I'm not anti-knockoff, I think they're cool.



They need 4x114.3 in 15x10

I'm not for knockoffs usually, but these look different enough that I don't think anyone will be fooled into thinking they're real Yayois.

I am not a knockoff hater either. I think these look ok but I would make some changes. Make them available in 4x114.3, and other sizes than 15x8. Like 13' and 14 ' as well. I would also repaint them, the pink they come just looks wrong.

Not sure if you saw it, but if you scroll down more, you'll see they come in black and gold as well.

i dont hate knockoffs just because they're copied designs, i hate the fact that the must ultimately awesome wheels get stuck in California because all of the butthurt jealousy they have for the other 49's less-socialist legislation...

but these wheels just look like crap.

Lol@pink sock!!!

hmm not sure how I feel about those wheels. They do look like cheap knockoffs though.

So, are you complaining that they're making replica's of the Hayashi Sakura alloys or that they don't come in the PCD and offset you would like?

offset and studd pattern is perfect for a Gemini.

I'm glad someone makes a replica, sad it doesn't come in a bolt pattern or size I could use. The real deal is prohibitively expensive for the vast majority of us.

bolt pattern, width and crazy negative offset choices will be good

looks like the knockoffs that have been on yja for quite a while. Why the hell they are fwd offset with fwd pattern is lame -_- Doesnt really bug me because 3k for a set of real ones is pretty bad.
