Black rockstars

Was trying to buy black rockstars today from a national wheel and tire dealership here in Canada, and was told they have been discontinued. The dealer said they were discontinued because of a large amount of warranty issues such as pitting. Has anyone had these so called issues with their rims and if so are the monsters the same. He wanted to sell me a set of Ions that are similar to the rockstars. I'm thinking he just wanted to sell the Ions, i know i can get the rockstars from another wheel dealer.

I know there have been issues with the large diameter Rockstars cracking and failing. I have Monsters. 3 yrs of abuse and towing and they are still in amazing shape. I highly recommend these rims to anyone.

Lets just say not quite stock.
