Oh, another nice thing about the Forgelines is that the TPMS sensors mount like they do on the stock wheels.

Tony, thanks for the correction. I didn't realize that.

I just know that those "other wheels" I had were a pita to mount the sensors.

Stepped lip wheels also don't do the rain-wobble dance. Water doesn't get trapped behind the spokes.

Can you tell I prefer stepped lip wheels?

I find the stepped lip wheels are MUCH easier to clean than my other wheels were. The water just runs off. No puddles (like you said) AND the finish stays on the wheels when I wash and polish them.

Did I mention that the car is tons quicker with them too?

Flat lip will be just fine.

It only takes a LOT longer to clean and polish them
Let me fix that for you... I'll take the ones in Tony's avitar...

I've still got your original 20's stacked up in my garage. Tires are bald though.

Or you can get another set of square wheels

Ok, the Vossen wheels are 27 pounds fronts and 28 pounds rears. So lighter than stock wheels but not quite as light as Forgelines.
