This seems like a great deal...

I've always wanted some style 65s... and this seems like a great deal.
The wheels are not staggered, but I dont think I would mind.

Why so cheap? Chinese? Really, this would almost be the price for one wheel!

BTW, non-staggered is better: you can rotate tires for better wear.

that's a pretty good deal for this set. they look fairly clean. the plus as ed said, "you can rotate them". i would get them if i were you. if you really wanted a staggered look you can always put a spacer on the rear. good luck.
cheers,
larry

Very true, also 245s are cheaper then 265s
I emailed him asking to see the back of the wheels (so I can see if they are oem)

Hopefully they are legit
