Thatís def the case. Itís all up to the brand. Where they manufacture & how they manufacture it. I had good chunk of cast wheels and some have survived brutal beating while my one buddyís forged wheels couldnít handle the same stress... which was very surprising.

I couldn't imagine screwing up a forged part. So much labor down the tube

Aluminum looks like it is fun to process. It's phase diagram is ridiculous and it all happens at comparatively low temperatures.

I don't mean screwing up a good part I mean making a "bad" one on purpose. You know better than anybody that products are built to a customers specs. Bad specs mean bad parts. You can have bad speced forged and good speced cast. It is all in what they ask for.

Love Advans. Super clean. What other ones were you looking at? Was supposed be doing a couple mods to the car around this time too, but the bumper thing kinda put a hold on that. Might still do some minor stuff, but weíll see

Yeah love Advan wheels. Especially their gold RCII. Too bad they didn’t make it in the spec I wanted. Still look nice (photo spec is 17x8.5+45).



So looking at all the 17x8 wheel options... other than ROF1 (cuz EVERYONE have RPF1 lol). Why 17x8? Cuz SCCA SSC class require 17x8, plus for daily I really enjoy 8” width more than 9”.

One of the wheel looking at is Enkei PF05 (17x8+38). But is it worth +-$1,400 for wheel that’s pretty heavy (19.86 lbs).



But sure look nice (photo one is 18’s iirc)


Staying at gold/bronze, next wheel is Konig Hexaform. Their spec is 17x8+40. Offset isn’t not too aggressive than I wish for, but price isn’t bad at <$900. Simple 6 spoke wheels and it’s their new form model. Weight is still unknown, but form tech is on it, so shouldn’t be heavy... I think



Next wheel is Enkei PF1. Spec is 17x8+35 & it’s the spec I was looking for. Weight is decently light w 18.2 lbs, of course RPF1 is lighter than PF1. Price is <$1,100. Only complain is color option is limited (silver or black).



So next wheel option I was looking at is Advanti Racing Storm S1. This is def bang for buck. 17x8+35 weighting only 17.3 lbs w banging price tag of $625-ish (depends on where you get it). Using form tech as well, so pretty strong. Advanti Raving is brother company of Konig, so they’re not a bad brand.


Last wheel I’m looking at is Motegi MR147. 17x8+38 weighting 18.62 lbs w pricing $615-ish, which is cheaper than S1. Motegi is looked at as cheap cast brand, but they’re actually good w their wheels & I had few in the past cars, so no complain as a brand.


I was look at Weds (TC105X) & few other wheels. Still not decided... plus I need new front bumper. Ugh

I like those silver Enkeis. Not bad. The Konigs are cool, but yeah almost all of their wheels are +40 offset no matter the size. Iíve looked at the Advanti ones, but itís just a simple 10 spoke. Donít think you could go wrong with flow formed Enkeis or Konigs. Just gotta find a unique design in a color you like that will come in a good size as well.

17x8 +35 sounds like a great set up. Why do you need a new front bumper?

I'm in the same boat. After all the gyms closed, my job furloughed everyone. I'm going bonkers trying to do stuff. Basically all of my hobbies and enjoyments are prohibited due to the lock down
