New Wheels: Down to 2 choices.

Both sets will cost at around 1100 bucks for 20". They look great. I love the black with machined face but I also love the forgestar reps... decisions....decisions...

My advice is to spend just a bit more and get the real Forgestars or another Flow Forged wheel. You might check out TSW wheels also. They for flow forged and priced similar to the wheels you are currently considering.

forgestars have a nice concavity to it especially when you get the right offsets for the front. but don't know since the one's you're looking at are reps? don't know much about the 2nd one...what are they?

I'm actually leaning more towards the black wheel with the machined face. Currently have that setup on my car and I think it looks great because my car is dark and the machined face of the wheel will give off contrast and the inner barrel black will give it some slight aggressiveness...

I understand about concavity of the forgestars. They are nice but these wheels have gotten pretty good reviews across different boards. They are around the same quality as VMR which I'm okay with...

Company name is curva. It's not actually a replica of the forgestars f14... just kind of looks like it and I labeled it as such. I made a post a while ago asking for help looking for a 20" CSL style wheel. I found it now!

You need to shop around I'm seeing them for less than $900, one site has 20x10.5 all around for like $724. This makes me question the quality, these might be duds bro

Really? Even for the BMW bolt pattern and offsets? Links please! I will still keep my M5 reps and swap out every 6 months to keep things fresh. I find that when I stay with one style wheel for a certain period of time I get bored...

I don't think the offsets or bolt pattern make a difference in price, one of the sites said "we can drill any bolt pattern" at no charge. I will find those site for you.

Here the one for $900ish and they drill any bolt pattern,
http://www.discountedwheelwarehouse....0GMH&pID=71329


Heres the ones for $700ish,
https://onlinewheelsdirect.com/curva...s%5B0%5D=65987

If you call them I'm sure you can get them in your preferred sizes, and they are cheaper than where ever you found them.

I'm just looking out for you mang

Right on bro. Thanks! I'll check it out. There are varying prices but if I can get it out of state (California) for a good shipping price where I don't have to pay tax then that will be awesome.

Right now I have found the correct set 5x120 bolt pattern, correct hub size, fronts 20x8.5 35mm offset and rears 20x9.5 40mm offset for 1019.00 shipped to my door. Which is an awesome price and they are based in NJ so no sales tax!

I'm sure a lot of wheel shops in Cali have these wheels( prolly the ones I listed) at least you could go see them in person before you order. I would.

Very true. I will try and find a local wheel shop. I am leaning towards the C7 version, as I really like the black barrel and machine face of the wheel.

Thanks for the help man!

Nice.. Where did you get the rotors from ? And what did they run you if you don't mind me asking.

Did you install them yourself.?
