I'd be more upset that you didn't get those wider Enkei wheels! ;)

They're wider? Hard to tell from the pic.

Judging by the outer dish and extra tyre width they'd have to be 6" wide at least. Spoke style is not the same as the rims factory fitted to local Iggy Sports, so they're definately a different rim.

I've seen those wheels in brochure photos (and those brochure photos look a bit photoshopped to me) so suspect they were either something fitted to a prototype or artistic licence.

I found a higher-res version of this pic. Rims are definitely different. There's an enkei badge on the outside of the rim. Mine only has the badge on the inside - you need to remove the wheel to see it.

Damn - won't let me upload a 5035x4057 jpeg. Here's the cropped wheel.

Yeah the first thing I noticed was that the spokes were thinner with more curve. The iggy sport rims we got here have almost straight spokes and nowhere near the same amount of dish.

For comparison:
