Anyone recognise possibly the best alloys ever?

Thinking ahead to when the Mrs finally lets me buy another 159 - some stunning looking kits from Gevalto in the USA but these alloys are something else - anyone know what they are?

... from the US, isn’t it EU made? Website refers to Zagreb.

Wheel design does something to me, but usually I find OEM solutions more in harmony. Except maybe when you opt for a bodykit to differentiate from the mass. Just maybe for the rear kit, bumper + ducktail boot spoiler, as I’m not particularly in love with this front kit. In combination with the back modified, the wheel design suits well though - I think... from a picture...

Yet, these things are very subjective to personal taste. Luckily we all don’t share the same. Hence, do to tune your car whatever way your eyes will not get away from it anymore. You might want to do it in a reverseable way though, for keeping its value (most of the times). Wheels only and a bumper are easy to exchange for stock again.

They look nice, but the thought of keeping them clean would give me nightmares.

And so many edges for the lacquer to break at the meeting of the machined face and the grey paint?
