I read on here that If you look on eBay under the seller wheels and caps you can get them for less than what they ask on they're web site.

thanks, but still confused on difference between the silver and painted silver... someone help!
Maybe post a link to show where you are seeing this. I have only heard of silver and chrome finish and I thought the silver was painted on.

I'm not meaning to be a butthead, but why don't you just call them and ask?

I did notice one said OEM and the other did not.

I think that the all paint is painted front and back inside and out whereas the refurb oem is painted like new with silver on the front but the barrel is white, but the repro is painted silver throughout. Im assuming that based on my oe wheel, which admittedly isnt a 128, so just a guess. Calling will be only way to find out

Do the replicas have the same concavity as the OEM ones? Im really considering picking up a set of these.
