New wheels : BC Forged HB29

Just want to share my new wheels...they replaced my Morr VS8.2s.

These are 20" BC Forged HB 29 in brush center/polish lip configuration.

It took a little bit of time to get used to it but I like it

If I'm not mistaken, this was the set that I saw there when I ordered my HB 29s. WK said BC Forged made a mistake and they need to send it back. They were actually asking me if I just want to take them instead.

Unfortunate that they don't make the new S styles in FF

But heard from 2 people with BC that they leak air when driven hard or thru bumps...... Saw with my own eyes on one where the wheel lost pressure but they couldn't find the source of the leak.....

Wow...I hope it doesn't happen to mine. Now I'm thinking if I should just keep my Morr's as spares. I still have them with me. It's just that it is taking too much space to store in HK.

Hi Jxnco, just wonder you choose BC, this is one of my preference model, but I choose S03 finally.

Very nice

Looks Good
Can you share that how weight are they?
and the cost, since I know this brand is made in Taiwan, isn't it?

Weight is pretty much the same as my old Morr's...around 22 lbs for the front and 23 lbs for the rear.

Yes it is made in Taiwan that's why it's cheaper. Quality wise, not complaints as of now. I'll PM you the price.
