Factory Reps/OEWheels prices?

I'm somewhat new to the Jeep community and I know many of you have a set of Factory Reps. I'm looking for a winter set and want 4 20x9 reps(black). I'd like to hear what you guys have to say, reviews/issues about these places. I know I could get them from DemonPerformance too but haven't gotten a quote, but here is what I have so far.

Factory Reps - $759+129(shipping)= $888
<vendor info removed>
OEWheels - $594+89(shipping)= $683

Just wondering why they are so cheap from OEWheels. Any input would be appreciated.

Thanks.

I'd hope the quality is good, I've seen zero complaints about that. My main concern is the price drop from oewheels.com compared to the others. I could buy 5 from them for the same price the others are going to charge me. I just don't want to make a a costly mistake.

same wheels - FP offers more finish options as well as the staggared setup though.
also, 18" F10's with 255 rubber seem to be a very popular choice

also remember that for snow, the taller and narrower a tire the better !

I hear ya. All I need are black ones, probably plasti-dip them for extra protection.

Really? Strange, didnt notice it when I searched. And thats why I started this post, I was just curious because of the low price and didnt know if anyone had purchased wheels from them. Looks like I will be doing that. Thanks!
