yeah, looks like they are the same.
i emailed them when i was looking for wheels and asked how come they charge double the shipping cost as eurotech, and they were very rude, so i said forget it, i dont want to do business with someone that tries to rip me off on shipping. o well.
im happy w my wheels tho, so i dont really care.

DJ did you run 275/40/18 for a specific reason? Was 265 small?

I woudn't mind running those wheels but I'd want to use 265/35/18 in the rear instead of 275/40/18.

How have the wheels held up for you?

I have the 275/40/18 on mine and I should have gone w/the 35's. If I hit a bump not even hard it scrapes the wheel well. Doesn't do any damage, but drive me freakin' nuts!! I'm running the 18" rims from a 05' boxster s btw. I'll post a pic tomorrow...too lazy tonight.

i can tell you what its hitting. mine did that as well, just needs a little bit of a grind.
its the connection between the 1/4 panel and rear bumper.
2 minute grind did the job...you can also see the little tab under it, just push it in as well
sorry, cellphone pic while working in garage
