19" Wheel Options

Thinking about dropping down to 19 inch wheels for autocross. Forgelines are out of my budget so what are going to be my next best options?

I'm looking at a nice closeout price on winter tires but I also need a 19"x9.5" or 19"x10" wheel. Sourcing these are tough!

all depends on your budget. if you want at least rotary forged, the lowest I found was $1600

You have a good choice of wheels.

MRR FS01 and or FS02

Forgestar Wheels

They are strong and made on order.

I'd like to see a flow forge 19" option that looks like the z28. I have 20" and have no intention to spend money to keep same size. I'm not sure how or why everyone is so drawn to 20". It's a waste of added weight and rotation mass. The 19" is the better choice for looks and performance. I'd like to replace my zL1 20" wheels that came on my 1LE but the only wheel I see I like is the OEM z28 rims. Looks like I will be going that route. Seems you can buy some large getto blaster 21-28" rims easier than 19".

I'm looking at OZ in 19x10 for a square set up. With winter coming I have a few months to decide. I completely agree on the rotating mass.

A good option is the MRR FS01 wheels I have done it before and they work great in 19" fitment.

Used the 285/35/19 Potenza RE-71R tires as well.

Any chance of getting 305's on there?

I run a forgestar 19" set-up. 9.5" on front and 11" on rear. Front is 255/45 and rear is 305/35. Tires are about .5" shorter than stock. Really needs atleast drop springs for wheel gap. I have phaestek springs.
