F14

Forgestar F14s are CUSTOM MADE wheels that will look GREAT -- STRONG AND LIGHT --- Although the ARC-8s are really good they will require spacers.
.
Both are a big notch below the ADVAN RS but SUPERRIOR to OTHERS based on the combination of manufacturing process and the ability to order precise ET - tailored to your car & less than 1/2 price of RS.
.

If you want cheaper then 162s or VMR VB3 get my vote for 18's -

ADVAN RS > F14 > ARC-8 > 162 > VB3

Bump for an important thread.

Had a blow out in one of my 19" tires and put on my stock 18's (with practically new rubber) for a couple of months. The good news - I had backups. The bad news - I REALLY liked the ride better with the 18's.

So...I'm now looking for some 18's to replace my 19's, preferably a multi-spoke that looks bigger than 18". The obvious choice is a 359 rep, but...

What do you guys think? Pics???

if you got the funds, BBS LM and CCW's look sick with aggressive offsets even in 18" size. but then you'll need proper suspension to match too.
CCW Ftw. But gotta be aggressive

Hey! This is what I'm currently running on my car. AG M359 in 18's Hyper Silver. I think they look pretty good. http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=730508
