      I've just bought a set of Rial Viper E's (4x100 17x7.5) and have a couple questions for anyone with experience with them. First, what is the weight/rim? I can find lots of wieght info for the Viper D, but nothing on the E. Secondly, how durable are Rial wheels in general? Do they bend easily? Any problems with the finish? etc? Thanks for any input!!!!

      Rial wheels are well-built & will not bend easily. I had a set back in the days (mesh-style) and they held up very well. Generally, they are on the heavier side, weight-wise.

      Sweet, thanks for the info..... it's good to know that the quality is good. Kinda sucks about the wieght, but you gotta expect that unless you're willing to pay the cost of forged aluminum.

      Well, they arrived today and I have to say I'm pretty impressed. 4 business days shipping to get from Cali to BC including customs. The rims are exactly what he promised and (I think anyways) look pretty damn sweet. Tomorrow I'll be test fitting them w/o rubber to make sure the fitment is good then Friday it's off for mounting
