Talking Forgestar F14 22x9 & 22x10.5 Photos on Camaro SS

My first set of 22-inch Forgestar F14 wheels arrived last week, and I finally had time to mount them on my Camaro. Sorry about the night photos, but I figured it was better than nothing. Pro photo shoot coming ASAP, as I provide marketing images for Forgestar.

I decided to give some other tires a try, Nitto 420S tires. These have a 400 treadwear rating, so they should last a long time. They are also on the tall end of the height spectrum, both front and rears are pushing 29" tall. It should result in a smoother ride, less risk from potholes. Best of all, the tires aren't that expensive.

Forgestar F14 Flow-Formed
Textured Black Finish
22x9.0 front with Nitto 420S 265/35-22 tire (64.5 lbs total)
22x10.5 rear with Nitto 420S 295/30-22 tire (65 lbs total)

22x9.0 wheel weighs 29.5 lbs
22x10.5 wheel weighs 30.0 lbs

Now for the photos

WOW I just jumped on GFX that I got at a good deal on. Thanks for making me regret my decision Tony or else I would have ordered a set from you as we speak.

Sickness Tony. How much does a set of those with those tires set a normal person back?? Also, how long until these things are readily available? What finishes available?

Just a tiny bit heavier with tires added.

+3.8 lbs per front over stock wheels/tires
+1.0 lb per rear over stock wheels/tires

Not bad!

I can't wait to see them on your IOM car!

The wheels are available now, but in very limited quantities. Like maybe 2 sets possibly remaining. They are nearly out of the rear 22x10.5 cores, as not many showed up in the first batch.

Not bad! I'll see if I can weigh mine with the wider Pirelli's. Shouldn't be much of a difference either.

I am usually not a fan of 22" wheels for the Camaro but I must those look really good and the color fits the car perfectly. Great choice.

HRE Monoblok P40 wheels. Brushed/Clearcoat finish. They are 1-piece forged wheels.
