These Enkei wheels any good?

I took over a lease on the JCW cooper I'm currently rolling in. As I think, maybe, possibly, it's not going to snow here anymore I'm putting these summer wheels/tires on for the first time. They were included with the car and barely have any mileage on them. I'm happy of course with the Pilot SuperSports but I don't know anything about these wheels. I've heard some aftermarket wheels are crap and some are good. Obviously these aren't forged HREs or anything but are they acceptable?

They look like TS10s to me. Should be a well built wheel. I'd guess less than 20lb in that size (18x8?). I run TS9s in a 17x8 for summer.

I have never heard anything bad about Enkei wheels, they are one of the better aftermarket mfg's that I am aware of. They were the mfg of the OEM rims on my wife's former '02 Forester, which I found interesting. I think Matt nailed it on the TS-10's, those are nice looking wheels.

Don't get wrapped up with the marketing hype on the MAT technology, that is virtually standard with cast rims these days. My former '06 Legacy's OEM rims had the same cast/spun barrel design along with my TSW Nurburgring's I run on my Mustang. TSW calls the spun barrel design "rotary forged"...ooohhh, aaahhhh...cough, cough.
