I was also considering the VVS-CV3's but in the end, opted for a more classic mesh wheel look. The MRR's have the look of a 3 piece wheel at half the price. I've had plenty of expensive 3 piece wheels over the years and bending one makes you want to . Not only the replacement cost but depending on the wheel, there could be a 3-6 week wait to have a new one made and shipped. The MRR is a pretty sturdy wheel...I've already hit a couple of big potholes with the wheels still running true. I live pretty close to their plant so if I do one day bend one, my dealer says they can have a new one on the car in 24 hrs.
I got a set of MRR GT5 for my wife's car and I can tell you they are tough as nails. My wife has banged and beat those wheels silly. The surface has been scraped but there are no bends, no wobbles, no peeling (other than self inflicted). If they can withstand my wife, they can handle anything or anyone else.
