sorry I gave up on finding these till I checked back here -

They are considerably more than Circle Racing. Dale at Schwartz can get them.

I had a quote from him quite some time ago.

Circle Racing will take forever to get though.

I have sent Schwartz an inquiry but couldn't find much on the circle racing wheels - have a link by chance? I'm afraid the US mags may not be that affordable

Here you go:

Dale at Schwartz is great to deal with...the Circle Racing guys, not so much.

They pick and choose which orders they will do first instead of filling them in the order they received them. I've been waiting on 2 wheels since August.

Not a fan of Circle Racing. Read some bad reviews on them (they take forever, wheels out of round, etc) most of these bad reviews were on their facebook page, which they since deleted entirely. They even went through a lawsuit with a very unhappy customer about a year ago.

I consulted with them multiple times, and I was ready to order a set of wheels....until I read the reviews. I always wondered why their wheels are cheaper than the rest.....

I should point out that there are others on this forum who were happy with the wheels they bought from Circle, but based on my experience dealing with them, and reading the negative feedback, I'll never be wheels from them in the future. ESPECIALLY if I plan on taking the car to the track at all.
Just my 2 cents
