Forgestar CF5

Installing my new Forgestar CF5 today. I'm a bit disappointed by the weight considering they advertised 18 lbs for 18x8.5 and 19 lbs for 18x9.5 but at least it's an improvement. Seems a bit odd that the 9.5 weighs 3.4 pounds more than the 8.5.

The weight will vary by the offset. The M3 requires a lower offset which makes the weight a bit higher. Although I agree for 18" the weight is a bit high.

They weigh about the same (or a little more) than the 19" VS8.2. Sell 'em and get some VS8.2!! Just kidding.

They are a nice looking wheel and not a bad weight really.

I'm on the hook for a set of these but they just look so uninspiring and generic.
