Zone wheels anyone?

I have the option to buy a set of 20" Zone 3 wheels from a guy who had them on his M6. They are not in good condition but I may be able to pick them up for a good price and get them refinished. Does anyone here have any experience or know anything about these wheels. Their website seems to be not so imformative and other sites state they are no longer for sale? Thanks.

Dave

Just opinion.
The money you spent on these could have gone towards a new set built just for you to your specifications, regardless of what "deal" you might get it's always better knowing the history of your parts.

Also depending on how aggressive this person got his offsets on his M6 you might have to play with your fenders.

But this is all heresay

I hear what your are saying. I'm just thinking that for just under $2000, I can have fresh powercaoted forged 3-piece wheels, slightly used front tires and brand new rears. The guy who had them previous to me is a good customer/friend of a local tire shop that my company does work with as well. Do the M6's have more fender clearance?

Its all a value system
If you like them that much then do it,

but yes, M6s can run wider wheels more comfortably than we can.
