He has a link on the first post to his photobucket account with hundreds of pictures.
Nice. I'm gonna keep looking though. Only one 5 spoke wheel and has no lip. The price might be enough to have me buying them. I can have them refinished the way I want later. Thanks.

These wheels are indeed flow formed as mentioned above, and they are indeed very lightweight, and more importantly, they're very strong as well.

Feel free to send me a PM if you want a quote on them, I've already got tons of guys off this forum interested and ready to buy, and there's not many barrels left over to use, just FYI.
Not a big fan of the style. Doesn't look bad by any means but I've seen some I like better.

What particular style are you looking for exactly? I might have something that matches up better.

5 spoke with at least some lip. Spokes/Centers I want two colors, Black on the face of the spokes and polished aluminum on the sides of the spokes.

Something like this?


iForged Aegis


iForged Avus

All pretty customizable so the getting the right finish shouldn't be a problem at all... Is that something more to your liking?

Ah the age old question which wheels. Get ready to rack your brain. I'm still trying to decide. Do you want black or a silver finish?

Thing about it is I have already bought the GM 21" wheels/tires combo for 4800.00, and bought the Savini wheels/tires for 5200.00 after sensors too.

The GM wheels came with the anal screwing of tires that were going to run damn near 2k to replace and the Savinis just won't hook being 22 inch wheels. Plus the other problems that I had with them.

So I've spent over 10k in wheels and tires alone in the past 3 years. I'm tired of getting jacked over. I have a hard time allowing myself to overpay for wheels again.

Very much more attractive.

Can the centers be two toned?

Sending you a PM as well... I know I've seen a polished face with black barrels and black sides of the spoke before, so I'll confirm and send you a PM.

This sounds like the PERFECT wheel for you....Forgeline CA3P Black Diamond Cut. A little expensive, but EXACTLY what you described.....and Forgeline is one of the most reputable companies out there!!!

That is my scheme. I will have the black face, polished or chrome lip and polished or chrome sides to the spokes. That particular style is a little wide of a spoke but very much like I am looking for.

I could do a deep concave with the spokes leaving no lip if the spokes were thinner like that last one there. I like it.

How much is it.

I've made the biggest purchase mistake of my life with the Savinis and so I'm going to make damn sure I don't do it again. One thing I will NOT hear is 'You get what you pay for'. NO you don't always.

Staggered set-up 11" rears and 9.5 fronts. 20" wheels. I'd go 10.5 inch balanced set if I could be sure they will clear my Pedders coilovers in the front. Rears I know will fit with 11" widths and 315s.

I can look into the different wheels but are there any wheel ideas out there you guys recommend as I put my shopping database together?




Edit: I should mention that, yes, I've looked at some of the more obvious wheels but welcome the input.



List:

Vossen
22" Vossen CV3s will be here next month. They will be 22x9 and 22x10.5. All our wheels are backed by an industry leading warranty, that separates us from everyone else. We truly stand behind our product.

There is no additional cost for choosing any of our finishes. MSRP will be between $2800-2900. Dealer pricing will be lower.

I am NOT interested in 22s. Now if you have 20s with the right price widths and finish I could be convinced that it's my wheel.

I could be wrong but im pretty sure I saw a few days back that the 20's go for about 600 per wheel, pretty good price IMO. Not sure about the widths and finishes though.

20x9 and 20x10.5.

Finishes are here, there are three.

http://www.vossenwheels.com/wheels/VVSCV3.aspx

MSRP is around $2500.. Dealer pricing is better

Good luck with what you choose. Any questions you can also email me (signature)
