Yeah I've been hearing lots of complain about exel and wheel max so i don't know what to do idunnoWheel Max is located down here in Miami so I can pick up the Rims myself. I think I'll look for those from different store and band.

i have one question. how many people do you know that have exels? what are you basing this on? do you have them? did they break? if so how long did you have them? how did they fail you? which model did you have? if your answers are as follows: none, nothing, no, no, dont have them, didnt, didnt have them; then stfu

I got those same rims (Exel Ritz) for my car, except I got 17" and plain silver. I like them, and everyone who has seen them on my car has complemented them. One person noted how well-balanced they are (very few balance weights were required).

I have not heard anything bad about the quality of Exel rims, but I have heard a lot of bad things about WheelMax's customer service. I couldn't find anything that compared pricewise to the Exel rims, so I took a chance and ordered them.

It's my understanding that Exel is a house-brand manufactured by WheelMax, so I don't think you'll find them anywhere else.

I got my Katana wheels from Wheelmax. No complaints here. I like the gunmetal color, but would pick a different style. Get what you like!
