Alzor Wheels...Thoughts??

So i've been close to pulling the trigger on some 18" or 19" VMR 710 or 718s as I like the style a lot, they weigh less than my OEMs, and they're affordable....also been considering the similar Alufelgen and Avant Garde models, but don't think I'll head that route as they cost a bit more than the VMRs. Ok, so I just got an email from ecs today on some Alzors (similar look to VMRs and others mentioned above) that are priced starting at $399! I've seen this name pop up every so often on here, but not nearly as often as a post on VMRs so I assumed the quality wasn't there or there were some other issues people have identified. Anyways, I was curious if anybody had any personal experience with these wheels and have some insight regarding the pros & cons? For reference, link below takes you to the wheels on the ecstuning website. I really appreciate any feedback you all have! Thanks!

ECS stands behind them and say they are strong.

They are heavy. Which may explain how they can be strong -and- at bargain price.

Sounds too good to be true.

Also Avant Garde m310's are the same price as VMR 710's. Avant Gardes are low pressure cast so they are a little stronger than VMR's. I recommend the 19" they are strong enough and IMO look much better than 18".
