Those are marketed over here as "DTM" brand, but pretty sure they are exactly the same, I know quite a few people with these brand wheels (incl one chap with those wheels in bronze on his white vr4) and haven't heard any horror stories yet.

I'll try and find some pics of his car with them on.

My roommate has a set of those in 17x9 for her 2G Talon. I don't think she's ever had an issue with them.

Had a set of 20's on my Dodge truck a few years back. Heavy as heck tho.
Never had an issue but if so I'm sure Discount would cover it 100%.

I have them in 17/18 on my Fiero and I'm very Happy with them. I've also seen some info on them under the name A-Tech. This specific wheel is pretty light for the size, but most other models are more like TSW's. I've hit a few good potholes and no bends/cracks so far.

Bronze should look good. I had a set of MB Motoring wheels on my Tahoe. 20". They seemed to do fine and the finish looked good after a winter with them (chrome).

I drove around for a while with the bronze TE37s on that very white Galant. Trust me, bronze on white looks sweet.

yeah the bronze te37's look amazing on a white galant or any car for that matter. I think the bronze would be the best choice if i were to purchase the wheels above. I would just have to do the 5 lug swap to get them since they dont sell them for the 4 lug setup

FWIW wheelweights says the 17x7 weighs in at 18lbs, 17x8 @20lbs, and 17x9 @21lbs. Hope that helps a bit... For perspective, stock 91 wheels weigh 17lbs and stock 92 weigh 16lbs, and something like an enkei rp-f1 weighs in around 15.5lbs.

Have you done the 5 bolt conversion? Just a FYI they are not available in 4X114.3 but I am sure you are aware of that.

We use a set of these in 17x8 ET28 on Conti's '08 Mustang GT project car. They're fairly strong as the car has gone off track a few times and are still straight, and aren't too heavy either, especialy when compared to the OE Mustang wheels.

A-Tech is what they are popularly known as. Not a bad wheel at all. Not too heavy. I considered these for the Evo at one time...
