OEM quality versus aftermarket...

Hey everyone.

I've always been an OEM-type of guy. From exterior mods to performance mods....always OEM. Just me.

In terms of wheels, I've owned OEM 225M, 269 Performance wheels, and 193M wheels. But recently, no OEM 19" wheels have gotten me excited.

Recently I saw the soon-to-be released Linea Corse 888. I guess you can call them a poor man's HRE SC43s. I would love to get the HREs, but too $$$ for me. I would love to pick up the LC 888s in satin black when they arrive, but not sure of their quality versus OEM wheels.

So, how do OEM wheels compare in quality to aftermarket wheels like LC, VMR, and similar wheels under $2 grand.
