What's up guys? Anyone have or have seen the Antera 361's on an RRS? I've got an opportunity to buy some lightly used 361's at a great price and would like to see how it looks or hear from someone who has seen this set up before. Thanks ;)

No likey...?

They aren't Chrome by the way, they are silver.

Truth be told they wouldn't be my top choice brand new, but I was offered a smoking deal and I think it's too hard to pass up. Here's some pics I found online.

Not feeling them. I have yet to see any aftermarket wheels look better than the top of the line OEM wheels.

I hear you.

Question, you think it would be a better call to get brand new Rinspeed replicas w/ tires for the same price as these slightly used Anteras w/ tires? Truth be told, the Rinspeed look is what I love, but I have owned Anteras before and like them, so I figuered these might be worth a shot. Plus I've heard that the Rinspeeds and Rinspeed replicas don't hold up to well... 8~

Rinspeed Replicas - no decision to think about at all. A wheel on our RRS's needs to show the lugnuts.....

imo, I would normally stay away from one piece cast wheels. However, I would definitely make an exception for rinspeeds since they look so good on our rovers. But replicas??? I would stay as far away as possible from them- those are the worst of the worst quality wheels one can get. I would hold out a while, there are some fantastic deals on great sets of quality wheels from time to time...

Too late. ;)

Ordered the Eurosport Thunder Rinspeed Replicas today with Pirelli Scorpion Tires, 285/35/22. Pretty excited to get these wheels, I love the look and for the money it’s a great deal.

My wife drives the car so I really wasn’t looking to break the bank on wheels, just something nice that should hold up. I had a bit of skepticism because yes they are replicas, but Eurosport makes OEM wheels for some brands and it seems like most “Rinspeed C5/1” you see out there are the replicas, meaning more replicas were sold than the real ones. Either way, they look good, won’t be driven too hard, so I’m sure we’ll be fine quality wise.

Keep us posted when you receive them. Kinda curious about the quality and if there's any serious effect on the ride.
I will, i'll post pics too.

I was a bit concerend on quality, but from what I have read and spoke to dealers about, they seem to be pretty solid. I mean I am sure there's a bad batch of wheels here and there but come on, we are Land Rover owners, we didn't read the consumer reports :lol:

Remember that all wheels need to be DOT approved like tires so you won't be sold absolute crap. Will it be the nicest quality billet aluminum wheel? Probably not, but structurally you should be fine, so long as the load rating is appropriate.

With wheels (as with most things in life), you get what you pay for. Doesn't mean that a cheaper wheel is crap, it just means to lower your expectations a little bit but I wouldn't expect them to flake or crack.

My sentiments exactly. Not in the position to drop $5K+ on new ones, let alone since the RRS is now my wife's car/baby mover, so I wasn't looking to get anything too crazy.
