I am looking at purchasing the same wheels for the reasons. These pics are really helping me choose.What size did you decide on and where did you purchase them?

midnighter 01-20-2013 08:34 PM

Looks like more attention is towards buying your stocks wheels than to your new Forgestars. :laugh:

19 lbs Rims and would you say about 30 lbs tires. That is great 49 lbs total. :thumbsup:

This is quite funny

Smittty 01-20-2013 11:07 PM

I like the look. :w00t:

69NMYSS 01-20-2013 11:21 PM

Needs lowered, get rid of all that fender gap and would look mean

Trackman 01-20-2013 11:21 PM

With the 18x10 are you planning to road race as well? I am considering a narrower front wheel and taller 28" tires for drag strip. Thank you for posting. Your pictures are helping me decide on my set up.

Haha that's why I clicked! Your ride does look great though! :thumbup:

sammyv 01-21-2013 07:31 AM

That's a good lookin car! Curious, do they come in factory sizes? I would like to reuse my stock tires.

I run the 305/35-18 at the track and they are definitely shorter than stock..probably 3" shorter. Next time I will get 305/45-18. With a 6spd car it probably is of no consequence, but with an auto the transmission shifts at weird rpm due to the wheel speed being different than indicated. Most times it is fine.

c4maroboy 01-21-2013 10:03 AM

loooks sharp! maybe ill buy these if my dealer cant come up with the 10 spokes for me!

charlietuna 01-21-2013 10:25 AM

looks fantastic hope the hook up well

ace32x 01-21-2013 11:19 AM

looks good! im debating pulling the trigger on these myself in 20x10 and 20x11.5 rear

John Deere Racer 01-21-2013 11:23 AM

Looks great

ace32x 01-21-2013 01:52 PM

on a side note for those interested i have a set of polished 5 spokes that im wanting to sell to pick some other wheels up (sorry op not trying to thread jack)

pluckracin 01-21-2013 07:27 PM

yes i plan to drag race at z max and road coarse the car at vir, and yes they make these wheels in 18 19 20 & 22 up to 12" wide in your offset of choice or custom build in other words. i am not going to lower the car because it wont stay like this,i will be back and forth with the 18" and 20 "now offset for front no more then 30+ mm on a 18 " more and it will hit steering spindle upper bracket . offset for rear still good 39+mm. tire height for 18" is 26.42 and 20" is 28.58 which gives a little more gear in the quarter mile run with smaller size. hope i this helps
