Default Does anyone know anything about these?

Hi guys. I saw these and thought they looked very nice but I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with them or the company? Also as I'm a newbie and in Sydney, Australia I am not sure whether the price is right. Everything Porsche 'down under' is very expensive so alternatives are always good. By the time we ship something in of eg $1000 US we will probably double that in our dollar$ with exchange and ripoff import duty so not sure if it's worth it.
Thanks

They sound like look-alike wheels, perhaps with factory center caps. The fact that there is no size or offset in the wheel by the air valve almost guarantees they are not sourced from Porsche (which may be perfectly OK), rather they would be manufactured by another company.

These are knockoff wheels. That's why they are 1/2 the price. Unless they are as strong and smooth as factory ones, I'd not get it. Also, paint quality may be questionable. I'd probly get a used set instead of knockoffs since you really don't know what you are getting into.

Those have to be shimmed like the originals, not something I am that keen on.
Hollow turbo twists are another option-they will be 2-3k $A and will fit.
I guess you know about the simmons, but there is lighter, cheaper and stronger, thats what I use.
