competition wheels?

Mazdatrix.com has panasport wheels for sale, but the page says the wheels are for competition use only, what's the difference between these and the panasports I see on a lot of forum members' cars? I've got a set of konig rewinds but have always wanted panasports, would these be dangerous to drive on the street?

I have 8 of them for my racecar. I frankly have no idea why they are labeled for competition use only. They are extremely strong, lite and are a higher quality wheel than the Panasport knock offs from Konig and Rota. For example the Panasports have steel inserts for the lug nuts and the Konig's don't. Really nice when you changing wheels allot.

That said the Konig's and Rotas are more than fine for the street and would probably be okay for racing/solo. Just not as good as the Panasports.

Why not call Mazdatrix and ask them....they are a Panasport dealer.

I thought that price was for a set, should've known that 200 dollars for 4 wheels is way too good to be true, I figured they would be much lighter than most other wheels..
