Are these as strong/durable as the three piece forged wheels or monoblock design? Someone said that flow-formed wheels weren't "true" forged wheels. I'm clueless so any explanation on the differences would help.

While a trueforged monoblock is still stronger compared to a flowformed wheel, the difference comes at a very high cost.

A flow formed wheel is somewhat of a hybrid in that it begines life as a casting and then is flow formed to the final width and finished more like a fully machined wheel. A fully forged monoblock wheel starts life as a forged billet blank and is machined for the final look. A monoblock wheel typically has a starting point in the 4000 dollar range and can go up.

Our flow formed wheels are roughly 1/3 the cost and have undergone destruction testing and have passed all ratings testing to ensure an EXTREMELY strong, yet lightweight, wheel.

This video is a good intro to the flow form process.

Nice wheels - the very popular Forgestar F14s are also flow formed I believe.

These wheels look very similar to the Forgestar F14s and TSW Nurburgrings and several others. This seems to be a popular design.

How much? $$$

And what sizes do the come in?

Gotcha, so this are basically cast face wheels with forged barrel/hoops. Cool. I was wondering why forgestars and these wheels could be so inexpensive and lightweight/strong.

Nice design and incredible weight.

Beautiful wheels. Now we need them in 20x9 and 20x11 sizes with the correct offsets to run 275/40 front and 315/35 rear tires and I as well as many others will be breaking down your door. Make mine Hyper Black, I've seen it in person on VMR wheels and it is drop dead gorgeous.

They have a ton of clearance on the brakes. We recommend our 18x10 front and 18x10.5 rear for autocross.

These are in stock and ready to ship!

Damn....everytime I turn around lately you've got something I'm wanting to add to my car.

I want to eventually do some wheel/tire combo and probably in 18" to get the weight down.

Can you PM the cost of some 18x10 all around. I want to be able to rotate the tires to try to make the tires last longer.

Also, what if any thing is offered for a center cap.

They come with your choice of Camaro centercaps or Chevy bowtie centercaps!

They are in the engineering phase. The moderators felt that since I didn't post a picture of wheels on a Camaro that the thread should be deleted.

My mistake as I didn't know that was a rule.

Perhaps it will be me if you could PM me some cost and size information. I'm in the market for 18" lightweight wheels. Would prefer Hyper Silver and something around 8.5/9 and 10/10.5 instead of 10.5 all around. It's a daily driver, occassional 1/4 and I don't autocross. Thank you.
