im blacking out my roof and im ordering black grills and cf mirrors etc..
so keep in mind i will have alot of "black" on the car too...

also the size I want is 19x8 in the front and 19x10 in the rear...

offsets im not too sure about

and I want a black face with either a red lip (not time attack but LIP) or white lip....

ok so my choices for iforged wheels were




Those are the swift... so in black with either white or red lip???

that is the TE-20... im not too thrilled about them tho... i dono... and also black with white/red lip

orrr

ok those were the iforged i liked and these are the DPE i liked




thats the GT-10... same black with red/white lip

orr



thats the R08-S... and i want black with red/white lip...

I say matte black swifts, with a chrome lip, or white lip if you are going to keep them crazy clean.

iforged swifts or daytonas are my favorites from what you posted. Don't know about red lips, but maybe you could pull off white..

Definitely not red lips!! Chrome lips are easier to maintain than polished lips but you can't buff out minor dings. BTW, the whilte lips looked surprisingly nice on a white car, kinda remind me of some of the famous Porsche's in the 80's.

iForged's look great but I am not crazy with the soft barrels that bent easily. I am switching to DPE to see if they are better.
