I like them. Not a fan of a lot of chrome. Just a hint is fine for me.

Okay, well since you didn't like the Forgeline CA3P, here's another one....EXACTLY as you described.

Weld RT-S 20" (a little bit cheaper than the Forgelines)

I do like it but the spokes are juuuust a little too wide. I could look passed that easily but I really don't like the stepped lip.

Vossen CV3 would be tops on my list if the finish were polished.

Ok.

So my thought process now is this:

Vossen are much less expensive. I can get tires, sensors AND the wheels for the price of Forgelines. And still have money for gas. lol

Somebody tell me the TRUE difference?

I mean the kind of difference that is worth 2 thousand dollars. Because I've spent the big bucks for 3 piece forged wheels before and even taking the out of round problems and leaking air problems away I still didn't see what exactly I was paying for.

For performance I would go with Forgestars hands down. But for style i would go with the Vossens and agree with a polished lip (the D2 Forged are awesome but way to expensive in my book)

I like the vossen CV3 as well.. That is the exact style I like. They look alot like the 360 Forged concave 5's and D2 Cv2 deep concave's which are my favorite wheels for the Camaro but for alot less. I would really like to see them on a Camaro to see how they compare to them.

Hey PQ,

If you are even remotely considering road racing your Camaro, then go with the Forgelines. The "lower cost" wheels, although fine for the street, would not be suitable for track.

Also, go with as wide a front as possible. I'm running 20x10 front and 20x11 rear Forgelines with Pfadt coilovers. Makes the car look mean!

Agreed Maro, I don't like sites that won't post pricing. I tried my best to make the new one shopper friendly, so they get an idea of ballpark pricing when browsing the best wheels in the industry.

Road racing not so much as Drag strip. But even the drag strip I'll end up with some wheels with DRs to swap.

But 'remotely' definitely includes me I guess.
