ET (Team 3) Wheel Company

I was planning on using a set of ET (now Team 3) wheels on my street rod project. Its a '41 willys pro street style and I've always liked the looks of the old ET III wheels.
However, after reading the reviews about Team 3 (there are only two of them, and both very negative) I'm having doubts about going with them.

Has anyone else out there had dealings with Team 3? I'd like to hear from anyone who has bought their wheels and if their experience was good or bad.
Thanks!

I bought a set of their 5 spokes with cast look spokes. I loved the design and they offered offsets that would work for me. I am very happy with them.

I think they took a little longer than I thought to get them. The person who answered the phone sounded like he was in the shop working but he was always able to answer my questions. I really don't remember having a problem with them. I wrote an email to find out what polish to use and they responed quickly.

It could be that after opening the first box I was blown away by the awesome polish job. I have never seen aluminum look so much like chrome. I have had them on my car for about 2 years. (I have not kept up on the polishing on the back sides and it shows. Any aluminum wheel would have this problem.)

If the wheels were ever stolen or damaged I would be calling them up for replacements.

Side Note: I bought 15"s and 16"s and they were constructed differently but look close enough. The 15"s had the spokes and the front of the rim cast in one piece and welded to a back half of a rim. The 16"s were made with the spoke center welded into a wheel. The rim profile is slightly different.
