Is this the wheels for the MR? Looks pretty the same except it is deeper. So it means I can't buy the exact MR wheels outside Mitshu. because this is deeper.
But I think X will look better if they use this deeper version.

Definitely not the same wheels, but they're similar. I really prefer the evo wheels though. I don't like the "rivets" on the outside...also the spokes on the X wheels are wider, and the center looks nicer on the X wheels.

On top of that, the standard BBS wheel has a polished lip and such. Just not my style overall.

Yep, master admin is right. It may look similar, but it's not the same

The BBS on Evo has 7 divided 'fingers' while RS GT has 8 divided 'fingers'

yeah i tried to count that but i got crossed eyes doing it. thanks for seeing the other difference. im more on deeper wheels like this cause in some point it makes the wheels looks wider to me.

They are two different wheels. The one with the "rivets" is a two piece wheel and more expensive.

Yes, also if you curb or scuff a wheel you can take it apart and have that one section fixed/replaced.
Yes this is true. Having a wheel 'serviceable' allows for a longer wheel life for your vehicle. Such as curbing, or dent being beyond repair. This allows the damaged portion to be serviced without all the bs about finding a new wheel and minimizes efforts in locating a new wheel, if said wheel has been discontinued. I have my pros and cons about 2 and 3 piece wheels. But in no way am I going to put effort into debating with anyone the why's :shades:
