I am considering the Mille Miglia Spiders, 18x8's. Saw they are at a very low cost ($180ea) and wanted to know if they are good quality.

Thanks.

They're okay for the money, but if you can afford it, check out some of my top choices:

2 or 3-piece wheels often offer the option of a polished rim and painted center, which I like, and are sometimes lighter, but always more expensive (figure about $1k ea. for top tuner wheel). Forged wheels are lighter and stronger, but sometimes have design limitations. I'm staying with 18", but some are considering 19" or 20"; gains are style, at the expense of ride comfrot, ease of damage and maybe even performance. I also am biased to staying with a German, or at least Euorpean wheel. I also like IFG (currently working on superlight 1-pc. forged 18: wheel) and HRE for forged wheels. BBS is a perrenial favorite of many, if you like the styles.

Happy hunting!
