From what you're telling us, ForgeStar meets all of your needs and wants in a set of wheels. Great wheels at an even great value!

With custom sizing and offsets for a great price point, you're also getting a flow form cast wheel that is lightweight and stronger then traditional gravity and low pressure cast wheels. Lemans blue M say said it best,

The strength of a flow-formed cast wheel is more uniform throughout the entire wheel surface, and thus the wheel is less likely to bend or crack upon impact with a curb or pothole. It's not as strong as a forged wheel of course, but it's the best technology available in cast wheel manufacturing.
