They seem to balance fine. The passenger side required minimal weights while the driver side needed more. The feel great on the road. Here are some close ups: Notice how both the rear and the front only required one weight to balance out on the passenger side

Thanks. Stock sport suspension. I am running 275/30/19 in the rear so they are barely larger than factory.

I'd also like to weigh in on this in Alufelgen's favor. Just had my wheels mounted and balanced at a local shop and when I asked them if they balanced OK, they said "absolutely". Of course they required weights, but they said they were no worse (and in most cases, better) than even OEM rims, which often need weights applied to both inside and outside. This shop had a Lambo on the floor and a Ferrari on the lift having an engine rebuild done, along with other high dollar cars, so I'm pretty comfortable they know what they're talking about.

Great wheels! Hoping to post pics either tomorrow or Sunday on my car.

This is what makes these wheels so much better than the VMR.

How did the finish hold up during balancing and mounting? Looks like you suffered a scratch on the left rear and a nick on the left front. Hope not.

There are no scratches or any kind of damages that resulted from mounting and balancing. What you're seeing are probably water spots/drops that have not dried properly. I went for a quick wash and didn't really dry it enough. So I could say the finish held up fine.
