btw genoks you pretty much hit it dead on but these i guess would be considered the knock offs since those rims are like 1000 a piece i think haha

I was going to go with Advan until I read genoks post!

Do those Weds even come in 20"? Finding Weds in 19" was a big chore when I was looking.

^ I'm patiently waiting for my rotas to explode. :)

Most of this forum is on replicas sadly. i wish i had the money to buy the confidence that my wheels will be stronger than the axles they are attached to :(

@op You know its a good teaser when you got me searching google for more pics :)

BS on imitation wheels being more dangerous.

I was in Denver and borrowing my Dad's Porsche. Was driving slow as hell and hit a hidden pothole at night and completely ruined his $2,800 forged wheel. I wish he had been running $200 imitations as the replacement cost would have been much cheaper. The end result would have been the same and a tow truck was called anyways.

There are good reasons to run the real thing like weight, supporting innovation and good engineering, and better dimensions and finishes, but safety is not one of them.

The only exception to this is a professional car driver that might slide out on the track yet continue racing in the same race. Obviously Forged wheels are more likely to hold up to that abuse.

I hit an electrical main cover (those rounded concrete blocks) next to the freeway going 65. It turned my forged wheel into a giant pacman face, but the wheel didn't shatter like a cheaper cast wheel would have. My brakes were undamaged, and I managed to stop the car without wrecking into anything else.

Also, you only mentioned the wheel was damaged, so it seems like your dad's forged wheel did its duty and absorbed the damaged instead of letting it spread to the rest of the car.

Those should look really nice dude...to be blatantly honest i really don't like your current ones and I am glad your getting something that will look a million times better, especially at your ride height.

LOL at the video though.... I'll have to remember that when I'm shopping for wheels i need them to withstand being rammed by a swat team.

^I'm not a fan of his current wheels either. His whole car is transforming for the better. The way it was before I kinda felt like there was just too many different styles going on. Seems like now its just one style that flows well, can't wait to see it when its done.
