Price is ok, but whose giving you warranty on if some thing goes wrong? not worth for money you paying. go for a cheaper wheel who gives warranty or stick to rays dealer, you get peace of mind. And check for manufacturings dates as well..

I already had Rays wheels in my Supra, i know about the quality of the same.Rays is NOT your average wheel Company.

And if care about the warranty i won't be having a 10 year old JDM Toyota.

BTW the Toyota makes 400Bhp...

Yeah, but I know atleast 2 people who are still waiting for pricelists from the Rays Engineering distributor in India. This is the sort of service BEFORE you buy a wheel, who knows what happens after you buy them?

Ah, that's a very nice car. The Japanese answer to AMG and M, but more reliable.

Very unrealistic pricing. If any rays dealer on this earth is giving the above offers and you have proof, RAYS india will give 10% off on your next rays wheel order.

WE WANT REALISTIC EVIDENCE.
