I just said they are “rep wheels“ that’s all.

If you use them for general usage, then they are fine. They are just flow form wheels made in Taiwan or China

I'd say that FAST wheels are average quality aftermarket. Not crap, but not high quality either.

I'm tracking them and it's one of the 2 that are hub centric.

Most wheels are made in Taiwan or China. All depends on the factory.

They are not the greatest, but they are more than enough for daily use. Also know a few who use on track/autox and they held up fine

I have used them for 2 winters & they have been great. Just got them re balanced and got a wheel that's no longer perfect but then again they are cheap enough that i can just replace it & its not to expensive. I know guys who have used them as racing wheels and they have been good.

They are well made wheels and better then a lot of knock offs & if you damage one then you can replace it and it wont b that expensive.

They are slightly above average aftermarket wheels. I used a couple sets (different style, same brand) for winter wheels on two cars and they lasted fine till car was gone and still looked good. Better finish then some of the aftermarket stuff I saw while looking...

They're great DD wheels, but wont win any awards. They're light and cheap with direct hub centre fit for VW's in certain sizes (I did not want to use hub rings/adapters). I'd definitely put them above the usual replica boat anchor wheels. I have the really cheap replica wheels for my winters and they are noticeably way heavier and worse paint quality than the FC04 despite being only slightly cheaper. If my memory is correct I paid about $500 for the set of 17x7.5 cheap replicas, and about $700 for the FC04's.

Neuspeeds are a better direct fit option but they're considerably more money.

These are flow-formed, I don't know how they could be considered crap? Unless the paint is terrible (but not as evidenced by the winter photos), or they have no QC or quality standards, but doesn't seem likely.
