Are these replica wheels dangerous?

http://www.ebay.com/itm/20-Type-373-...1b77ec&vxp=mtr

Being honest, I can't afford the genuine OEM ones.

Has anyone every gone this path and been ok?

THANKS!

I've always been scared of AEM wheels. Whenever i go above 80mph. One of the main reasons i never bought used set of tires!!!
I like my life too much
I would rather go with cheaper smaller OEM

I would not put $800 wheels on my $65k car. Maybe wait a little and save until you can get something better than those. Maybe even a used forged set? Just my opinion.
