    Yes, I have them on my Scamp rallies.
    Fit ok, If I remember, a little tough to install, but have no problem with them.
    Decent product for the money.
    They are shiner than originals, originals have a little more brushed look from what I remember.

    GREAT TO HEAR. I knew they were polished vs brushed and actually liked that. Some guys on the AMX forum have used these Ebay rings and scuffed them up w/a Scotch Brite pad.

    They are offered on Ebay for $59 for the 1 3/4" depth or $69 for the 2.5". Nothing I could find in between. It appears that I have 2.5" of room from the very edge of the wheel to the junction of the outer rim and the bolt circle, so it appears I would want the 2.5" to get that reflection of the holes on the ring.

    I have to ask i tried to send you a private message but your inbox says it's full so my question is did you buy these 2.5 rings and did you install them? Was there any problems with the way they fit? I bought a set and I'm in the process of painting my wheels so haven't had a chance to see how they fit just curious. Let me know
    Thanks

    I got the 2.5" and they WILL NOT FIT CORRECTLY. I got one one, but it stuck out about .5" all the way around the outside of the rim. The Ebay seller in Utah was pretty good- cost me $23 to ship em back, but they sent the 1.75" replacements and they worked OK. Not perfect as you know, the originals were about 2", so there is a small gap, but fine for my Duster.
