Enkei wheels

I was looking to upgrade my steelies to something new and exciting. Don't know much about Enkei wheels, but I found some that I like:

I'm hoping that they are rated for 1900 lb. but I don't know how to find out.

Also, does Enkei make a good product? Ideally, I would buy some Alcoa forged aluminum, but that would more than double the cost.

Thanks in advance.

Nice looking rims... but to be honest I've never heard of Enkei Wheels. Can you call or email them? Ask for the weight of the wheel as well.

Enkei wheels are mostly used on imports and small racey type cars. I dunno how they would hold up to the Hemi's weight..

Enkei has been around for a while. Big name in custom wheels. I bought a set for my firebird over 20 years ago. Good product.

I have the Enkei Phatt 20" on my truck. They are real nice. Not sure of the exact weight but they are heavy as hell.

My guess, with the Soyo Open Country 305/55/20's and the wheel they must weigh 80 lbs each easy.
