Does this exist: Forged, one-piece, super-concave?

Guys,

Need some advice from the wheel gurus out there - the guys who know every wheel under the sun. I'm looking for a forged one piece super-concave wheel. Something hopefully in the vain of the OEM Competition wheels. I can't find any.

DPE SP-SC16's have the concavity i'm looking for, but they're not one piece. But i think this wheel is beautiful.

Morr vs8.2's - Beautiful wheels again, but not forged, and wish they were just a little more concave.

HRE P40SC - though this one is a forged one piece, from what I understand this wheel is not actually super-concave, but only semi-conical. Otherwise this would have been the wheel.


Would really appreciate some advice and input from the wheel pros out there. I'm also open to suggestions on wheels that don't necessarily look like the competition wheels (so long as they meet the other criteria) if you have any.

Thanks in advance to everyone.
- esquire

Tibra,

You know what... those look really good. But for the same reasons that you used that emoticon, I have some doubts about ADV.1. =/

yeah, monoblock is pretty high up in the list of criteria. this wheel has to be able to withstand track forces.

You should put DPE right up there with ADV when it comes to uncertainty about a company.

HRE is your best bet. It's pretty concave when I saw them.

I have the P40SC and from when I received pics they didn't look too concave at all, but when I got them in person they were pretty concave.

ninja would you mind posting pics (and stats) please? the pic from VR's post doesn't seem concave enough to me.

Thanks for posting up the pics of the E90 M3 Beast with the new HRE P44SC's. Here is the link for more pics --> http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=696698



OP, I have found that no pictures of any conical or concave wheel can capture how they truly look in person. I have seen hundreds of photos and none of them can do them justice. That goes for all concave and conical style wheels IMO.

What I can recommend from experience is HRE's. They have made me custom wheels with very aggressive offsets to come up with something that is very conical and created exactly the look that I was after. I know that you can play around with the wheel offset and width to produce the exact look that you are after. HRE is one of the few that can truly make custom wheels to your specs and the turn around time is quick.

Just my 2 cents!

Nothing wrong with flow-formed wheels. Much different than gravity cast.
