2013 Standard F4 Wheels Chinese?

Does anybody have one of the new 2013 F4's with the silver wheels? Those look too nice to have been constructed in China.

Does anybody have photos they could post of the markings on the newest 2013 wheels (any model is fine actually). I'm just curious. It would be pretty awesome if they were Italian made again.

Chinese manufacturers make things to your spec, most peoples' specs are "as cheap as possible" but if you actually want something made well, China can do it as well as anyone, but it won't be dirt cheap anymore. (Still most likely be cheaper than making anywhere else though)

People have made too much of a deal of the Chinese wheels. They're as nice as the old Brembo star and much lighter. There is a lot of high-end Chinese metal in the world these days.

Although I hear that the old Italian ones have more "passion" in them. I've never been able to get someone to quantify "passion" in terms of anything other than added vibration and weight, but that's the word on the street.

Funny this, I think these Star wheels are so cool.

I just want to see the markings. Might have to take a run down to the local dealer with my camera.

Yes I thought the same about the Apple iMac, Apple MacBook pro, iPad, and the Apple iPhone when we first bought them. But yes you guessed it, The worlds best computer products are Chinese made Brando

Have them on my 2013 Brutale 1090R.
Great build quality and love the design. Light and very easy to clean.
Who cares where they were build. If the quality is good it's fine for me.

For example: BMW's RR is more then half build with pieces from China ....
Welcome to the year 2013!
