There are no true 1PC wheels for the AM that I know of. The cost per wheel is essentially the same but the tooling cost is extremely high. The quality, however, is unmatched.
I am not trying to be a pain, I just want to make sure I understand this correctly. In your 3PC list you have stated that one of the disadvantages was "Spun-forged rim halves" It is not the spun forged/flow formed part you take objection to, it's the halves?

BTW your posts have been a great help and I highly appreciate your efforts!
