Default Fittipaldi Flames

Hello. I'm searched ebay, yahoo, even this forum.... I can't find the Fittipaldi Flames anywhere, wish I never heard of them. Anyway, I have a 97 Mazda Millenia. For some reason I've had bad luck with cracking rims, even though I've never noticed a flat. After I bought the car with a cracked rim, I bought the Fittipaldi Flames. Since then I've gone through 2 of them and have 2 Fittipaldi Flames and 2 factory rims on the darn thing. If I can find 2 Fittipaldi Flames would be nice to have matching rims again. Thanks for your help!!

I can see why they are cracking, they have pretty much no support. And im going to say they are cheaply made for only $88 a rim. If I were you I would not buy anymore.

Thanks for the help. I've actually seen that page but there is no where that I can call to get details first. Just says I need to join first before I can ask anything about them or if they are really available.
