The ZoomOn box the wheels arrived in. Has a nicely printed logo on it. Box arrived a bit tatty, but no damage to the contents 

Inside the box is a card with the ZoomOn website clearly written on it... and the Enkei wheel set too!

The front, visible sides of these rims are well casted and only require a little amount of cleaning before applying primer

Here are two close-ups of the rims and tires combination. I have checked all four rims and as mentioned before, found only a little amount of resin flash pieces to remove. You may want to keep in mind that these are racing wheels, with no lug nuts (bolts). So if you're considering using them on a street-version car, think twice if you want to keep your model car realistic

On the back side these are casted as male fitment, which is great news if you're planning on using them on the Hasegawa Civic EG kits. The same goes if you're going to use them on most Tamiya kits. If on the other hand, you'll be installing them on a kit with female fitment rims, you'll need to use the adaptors that are included with these rims. That's nice from ZoomOn!

As can be noted above, the back side of these rims are also neatly casted, same as the front side

The tires are the same Advan's supplied with the Spoon SW388 rims (also reviewed). These are well casted and the material is soft rubber. The tires tread is also great, as seen above. Some flash pieces could be noticed, but these were located at the back side of the tires and could be easilly removed with a blade or while sanding the tire for a worn look

Another thing noticed was that the Advan tires have the markings 195/60 HR14, which may look strange since these tires are actually wrapped around 16" rims! However, once again this is nothing major as these Advans look great around the Enkei's!

Finally, here's a close up of the wheel adaptors. As mentioned earlier, these would come handy if you're planning on installing these Enkei rims on a kit with female fitment wheels, such as a Fujimi or Aoshima kit. Some modification is necessary to fit

I bought these wheels for $15.00, equivalent to around 13.50 Euros, shipping included. Considering everything you get for that price, I think these are worth including in your shopping cart as I'm sure they'll look great underneath your racing car build! Overall, they are well casted and only need minor attention before actual primer can be applied.
