Picked up another set of BC Forged wheels recently, 19x9 weighing 18.8lbs without a tire and 43.0 with 255/30 Toyo. For reference, the stock 18 Cadiz wheel with the stock 225/40 tire weighed 45.2lbs

Thanks!

The gunmetal colour turned out to be darker than pictured on Superspeed's website, and not having the spokes extend all the way out to the rim edge tends to make the wheel look smaller overall at times. Still, these wheels are growing on me!

Registered to post this and say thanks for the past users that posted these wheels giving me confidence to pull the trigger on them



Motegi Traklites 17x8 +40 wearing 245/45r17 Conti DWS 06. Someone said something about truck tires?

PS I wanted to order from TR (can get wholesale pricing) but they insisted these wouldn't fit my car and didn't bother trying to find a car that would let me purchase them. Wish they would update that as they fit flawlessly.

Sorry about that, I saw the word forged and didn't realize forged is part of the company's name.

You can order from TR based on wheel size, doesn't have to be by vehicle.

Rundown:

-Stock DCC suspension with 034 Dynamic+ camber plates
-18x8.5" BBS Motorsports GT2 ET32-ish
-Hankook RS4 245/40R18
-No spacers

This is as flush as you can get, I know I should get a small drop to get rid of the rake, MSS/Swift I guess.

Yep! Was originally wanting to go darker but this finish isn't bad, it's got a little bit of depth in different lighting, for reference this is a moderately dirty Austin it's next to
