3) ADV.1 did not offer standard forgings until after Forged 1 was released and even then they are slightly different.

Basically meaning there aren't many ways to make certain wheel types (mesh, 5 spoke, etc) so yes many will look alike. If you do some research you will notice that many wheels do share some resemblence.

The only way to really come out with something "new" looking is usually to make a wheel that not many would put on a BMW (think gaudy, too busy, etc).
