Looking to replace one of the alloy wheels on my 2010 Accord Coupe but the one I'm looking to buy is a new replica wheel of the OEM. Are there any significant differences other than the price? I'm concerned about the durability and reliability of the aftermarket wheel as I never had any experience with one before.

The replica is about $200 cheaper than the OEM. The part # is 42700-TE0-A91. Considering how much cheaper the replica is, makes me wonder it's probably manufactured with cheaper material and quality compared to the more expensive OEM, then again it could be just nothing and the OEM is just marked way up.

Would never buy replica wheels. It'll be some made in China affair from the cheapest materials with the cheapest process possible. Zero testing for durability or safety.
