Phantom Tires in Mississauga

Hi guys, I did a search here and google and couldn't find much on these guys. Does anyone know this shop? phantomtires.ca

He gave me a pretty amazing quote for a set of HRE P40 replicas in Hyper Black.

Thoughts? Anyone heard of/use these guys before?

Thanks

Never heard of them but with reps you should see what company makes them. Reps are made very cheap with cheaper materials so cost is extremely low

I had 17" replicas i bought for $350 had no issues no bends or cracks.

Im sure as you increase in size the rigidity will be compromised.

But hey even the OEM wheels are cracking so nothing is promissed

Thanks guys. Yeah my OEM 17" just cracked. Just reading some more on replicas, kind of nervous. Just awaiting the dealers response on who the manufacturer is...

I guess that's why they are called "phantom" tire??!!-lol
Sorry I couldn't resist that one.
Haven't heard of them either.

Arent those the same as VMR 710? EVERYONE makes a wheel like that. I'd say you probably get what you pay for. Lots of guys use VMR.
