They're very new, they look like TC105N's, they're cast wheels weighing in at 23lb's a piece for $600 shipped. I read they have 2 certifications, JWL and VIA I believe.

A combination of quick Googling yesterday...their new website, their new facebook, and a seller JonMotoring on a number of forums. After a quick PM, despite the $650 MSRP, he is offering them at $600 shipped.

Just ordered a set, I'll let y'all know how they are and depending on how they turn out we should start stocking them.

They certainly look good, but never heard of them myself either. $600 for a full set of wheels sounds way too cheap to make up for the costs to actually get VIA and JWL certified, so at least in my opinion I would cross them off my own list. But who knows, I don't sell them, nor have I seen them in person, this is the first I've heard of them.

I asked for a photo of the certifications, and this is what I was sent:


Are these stamps ever faked?
