Anyone running forged wheels?
 
I seriously doubt this but is anyone here running aftermarket forged wheels on their cars? Such as wheels made by CCW or True Forged? Since we have a goofy ass lug pattern a lot of the wheels offered in our size suck imo, and I have not really seen any that I like. Plus the ones that are almost good looking everyone else has. If someone has a set of wheels made by any of these two brands I'd like to see how they look on our cars.

Only 3 companies currently offer true forged aluminum alloy wheels for our cars.

Centerline makes 5 or 6 different styles in 4 different sizes (15-18), but offers only 7" wide and +42 offset. $1100-$1200 for 4 in a 17.

O.Z. makes 2 models, one is 18x8 and the other 17x8, 17x7 may or may not be availble later. The 17x8's start at $325 each on Tirerack, 18x8's around $350 each.

ADR is about to release a TrakLite knockoff under the PSR brand that is available 15-17 x 7 only, in a +40 offset. I'm trying to get a group buy goin that would bring the 17x7's down to around $800 for 4 including shipping. Not a lot of takers yet, people want bigger sizes.

Worth noting that thee ARE other options, but cost is an issue...

Raceline will make you a set of true 3 piece forged center wheels in whatever style and size combination you want, and not too expensive all things considered at $300-$500 each depending on size and finish. Not as light as the others though.

BBS will scare you up some 10-13 lb 17's in whatever size and offset you want - for around $1,600 EACH.

Forgeline will also custom-drill you a set STARTING for a little over $2500 for the the set.

And for now that's about it... Many companies offer our bolt pattern now, ans most of them for their entire product line or nearly so - except their lightweight forged wheels, LMAO...

CCW and True Forged can make custom wheels for anything including our cars. Seeing as they are $2500 a set like I said I doubt many here have them.

I though about the 5 spoke centerline wheels but I want something gunmetal. I never really cared for the multispoke stlye of OZ wheels and ADR wheels are kind of cheapo quality.

The new PSR's are a true forged alloy wheel with a DOT cert, so they can't be all that bad IMO; the fact that they cost 50% more than any other ADR wheel is hopefully indicative that it's built well! Kosei makes inexpensive forged wheels (not in our size) that seem to work okay...

Forged wheels = win. putting the stock RL wheels on my car and then putting the stock Cavy LSsport forged wheels on. damn. so much lighter on the forged ones.

You could always get the Centerline's just powdercoated to whatever color you like. Another member here got the 5 spoke centerlines and had them poweder coated black, and they seemed to be holding up well 2 years or so down the road when he got rid of his car.

I was just looking into some ccw's also, I think they would definitely look good on the RL. I seen em on a couple honda's and they are pure sex...
