Original vs aftermarket Wolf's?

Hi all, I'm picking up my 2012 110 later this week and one of the first things I want to do is beef up the standard steel wheels. I do want to stick to steel wheels as I like the look and I don't believe the stock wheels will fit the 255-85r16 that I'd prefer.

I am keeping an eye out for genuine Wolf's on the usual websites, but came across these with the Toyo tyres as a package.

What's the view on these aftermarket Wolf "style" wheels? Would I be better holding out for an original set?
Cheers

I have had two sets of non genuine wolfs without any issues. In fact my second set was from paddocks.

the oe ones are slightly stronger and have a higher weight rating

paint is always poor


some of the copies paint is teh same some are better

in the real world price is the only difference.

normal folk in the street wont notice any difference nor will you driving..

i have both and no issues with either

Some of the wolf copies are available with bigger off set which I would personally go for and the paint quality on copy wolfs is considerably better than originals

I run the same tyres as well in the same size and rate them. Perfect for most eventualities. Good on and off road. I run them on my daily driver
