in my summit mag theres these rims that look exactly like prostars but they just switched the name up a bit, there about $100 each compared to $160 each, and they look good in the pics, but does anybody know if there made from exactly the same material and if there just as light

There is a reason why they are cheaper... Im sure they use different material and are alot heavier.

I have a set of cragar aluminum rims that look like Weld pro stars and they are really light... these may be the same. I know the street stars are steel and heavy.
