Who makes F14 style better than Forgestar?

Even though I love my current wheels https://images.app.goo.gl/RmLKFouc5RmnKFBFA
with zero issues even over some nasty fkn poth holes and 10,000 miles of use... Im still a lover of the F14s but not the rep of how weak a wheel they are for cracking. Any thoughts?

I had an ESR LM rep before, I can tell you that even a big big pothole going 70mph on stiff suspension only resulted in a bent wheel. I'd take a bent wheel over a crack any day. Plus a replacement wheel is only around $200.

Sometimes I wish I still had the ESR's because I don't fancy dishing out close to $1000 on one TE37.

Ah but those TE37s... one of my all time favorites.

Apex wheels look close depending on the style.
Much better than the crappy Forgestars I owned.
3 out of 4 wheels were trashed. Run from Forgestar.

Its too bad really. FS must realize the terrible rep the F14s have as a weak wheel. I just love the look.
