My new Forged-1 wheels...

I just installed a set of Forged-1 Mesh Seven wheels on my car.

Not sure about the look. Yes I know the car need a drop and that is happening next week but this is not what I was expecting...

So, I think I will be selling them or perhaps have them painted carbon black instead of the current gun metal finish.

please give me your honest feedback... beside the suspension ;-)

Honestly,

I feel like once your springs are on there it will look great. The finnish of the wheels isn't bad and I think that if you get them coated black they will look kind of... I dunno, like every other guy who makes his car black on black.

What's the specs, offset of the wheels and tires sizes? Everything appears to fit pefect. Flushed and all. I've grown out of the polished lip look but overall your wheel choice is a nice contrast for the black F10. The black on black look is getting dated. Hell I even think it looks good as it stands without the drop although it will look perfect once lowered a little.

Looks nice. I like the contrast too! Black on black is too dark in my opinion. What size rims are those? 20s? It will look sweet once its dropped. Can't wait to see the updated pics!

I think if you paint the wheels black including lip it will look smooth. Especially when the drop comes.

Maybe just buyers remorse. Happens to me all the time. I think it look great. It will look 10 times better when you drop the car. The lower the better. H&r wont do the job. Get ac or budget coil overs.

I vote keeping the wheels or go 21s. Don't get another 20s.

Jarruda, I think you just need to looknat the wheels a bit longer. They look amazing and I am sure once you drop it it will be even nicer. In case you end up wanting to sell nonetheless give me a shout I might take them off your hands. I amin Toronto.

Either change the colour of wheels or get a new setup. IMO, they do nothing for the car.

Look who's talking... I have started this project because of reading your posts and seeing your car....

I just wish I had your Midas touch!

wheels look ok. The lip makes them look small.

I hate that feeling when you are not sure about the wheel choice. I'm obsessed with wheel and tire designs and if doesn't look perfect I get serious buyers remorse. I got over the deep, polished lips as another member stated it does make the wheels look smaller visually. I prefer the spokes to go to the edge as the wheel looks full, almost larger. However the polished lip sets a contrast between wheel and car. Classy look for sure. Lower the car first. It could make up the vision you anticipated for.

Thanks for the specs. I was curious of how flush an ET20 to 27 looks on the front. Can you post a pic to show how flush the front and back wheels are? I'm wondering if a 20x9 ET20 will be just right for the front.

Back to stock ... the wheels are off the car. Will try to go for a different setup.

This is what I think I will end up


If anyone is looking for a great deal, my lost, your gain!
