I had the new wheels on for about 3 days and took them off to have them refinished a bit. Not that there were anything wrong with the workmanship but just to hopefully enhance them a little

I do like the BC Forged. I thought long and hard before I decided to give them a try. They are 2 pcs designs (disc and barrel) instead of 3 pcs (disc/outer rim/inner barrels) as most of the US/JP forged ones, which is perfect for me. I had problems with sealant of the 3pcs wheels and also the 3pcs wheels will be noisy when braking due to the sealant expanding and contracting a bit.

Leading, costs, and design all came into the decision making process. The wheels were very light. Same as my previous MS8 and MS10s, if not lighter. And handling has improved a bit, but not as noticeable as on the F10 that I had.

Lead time was only about a little over a month from ordering to delivery. And the wheels came with custom valve stems, not like the US forged wheels where I had to scramble for low profile-stems.

All-in-all, I liked the BC Forged wheels so far. But only time will tell. But then, at these prices, I can always order another set or 2 if I wanted a change
