These wheels are some of the few that are absolutely positively known to be 8,000 ton forged. At this stage I plan to hold out for the RACs. Three piece wheels have the advantage of (possibly) being repaired while a bent monoblock is guarenteed to be scrap metal. I just can't justify spending money on a monoblock that isn't bulletproof
