Is it just me or is anyone else tired of all of these chrome wheel designs with the fake rivets? I don't understand it. Even the Foose Nitrous have rivets. I think the wheels would look so much better without them.

its like buying a fake Rolex instead of a real Rolex. Some people are just looking for the look of a 2 or 3 piece wheel, without the Rolex price.

It's all a matter of personal taste. I think the Foose Nitrous are awesome looking. Fake rivets and all.

The originals with the two or three pieces looked awesome. I don't like to see fake rivets, but I do still like seeing them on actual two to three piece rims. I can understand why walmart would do it, but why Foose?

Foose is trying to cater to all. If Foose was to only do 1 off forged his market for wheels would drop by half. Foose knows where the money is, less expensive wheels that look like the expensive wheels, sells, sells ,sells.

They are also a pain to dry and polish around.
easy fix on the drying is use a leaf blower, or air compressor. If you use 1 or the other you dont have to polish your wheels nearly as much.

I had some wheels back in the day with fake rivets, Took a nail set and punched the out from the back and left just the holes. Looked even better to me.
