What wheels are these?

Hello, after searching I can't seem to find what wheels these are on this 8. Does anyone recognize them?


Thanks

They look a bit like the magnesium Mazdaspeed wheels though the spokes are a bit thinner. Wish you had a straight on pic.

Axis hero's. Most common RX-8 wheel ever. Well they were at one point anyway. Just a cheap cast wheel, nothing special.

I like the look of them...but you seem to be putting them in a negative light, not a good idea?

I'm not putting them in a negative light, it's just what they are. If you care about quality, weight, etc. then there are better options. I like the style, but the huge "Axis" on the spoke annoys me since Axis is mainly known for rip off wheels.

What's on your car? Looks similar, but I bet it's not cheap or heavy.

Volk GTS, it's a two piece forged wheel. Not cheap new but you can often find great deals on legit wheels used.
