Hoooo damn.. That is heavy! Well I could have sworn that the rep that I talked to said under 20 lbs but I could be wrong.

How about bc forged wheels? Yes they're 2 pieced but if painted all in one color they look one pieced and they concave pretty deep.

Maybe. But I'm specifically looking for forged wheels. Thanks for the suggestions though man.

Tbh I had my doubts about adv 1 when I bought mine but I really love them. You can search my threads for some pics. My current wheels aren't super concave in the back and almost flat on the front, but whenever I get more money to just throw away I know I'll get the same one or the 5.1 in as much concave as possible with lightening package.

redline the HRE wheels look beautiful. you can literally see the quality on them. if they were only just a little more concave. what are your specs on those wheels?

I am not sure on the offsets, but the fronts are 9.5" and rears are 11". With Any wheel on an m3 how concave it can be is limited by the car. I would talk with HRE and go over your requirements and they will make a wheels that is close as is possible given the limitations of the car.

Plus the HREs are super light

I would only go with HRE or a Japanese/BBS brands but I digress, I have a bias with American made companies that don't do all their work in house after my incident with a company.

I cannot comment in comparison with our conical profile in contrast to other wheel manufacturers conical profile. We don't offer lightening options because we feel that that should be a standard. Our wheels come with lightening pockets included. We manufacture our wheels in-house. We engineer/design our wheels in-house. And most importantly, we stand behind our product.

Join us on July 14 for our HRE Open House where we will show you how HRE Wheels are made. For those that can't make it out to San Diego, CA check out these videos of HRE factory.
www.egarage.com/videos/hre-wheels/ | www.vimeo.com/36386945

This allows us to build wheels that have the highest quality and strong and lightweight.

I weighed a 20x11 for a Mercedes CLS63 at 22.4 lbs !! Image what 19x11 would be in the 21 lb range. I would ask you compare that to other custom forged wheels in the market. Considering we allow custom fitments and finishes and that we have the lowest build times in the forged wheel business. Ask any other forged wheel company to build a wheel in 4 weeks, and see what they say.

I agree with DARKM3

FORGELINE
One piece forged-✔
lightweight-✔
Concave-✔

Unlike most brands available this brand actually is used in professional motorsports.

FYI TE37 SL are flow form cast as well.
Like DarkM3 said, much different from gravity spun casting and also much different from a truly forged wheel like the regular TE37.

they are not true forged monoblocks. They are flow form forged, which is not truly forged. Flow form forging usually involves 80% cast/20% forge. Forged monoblock you are saying they are 100% forged? Like I said in the other thread where someone wanted to claim what I said was wrong, go call Rays Japan and ask them, then come back and admit you're wrong.

I'm just going based off of their previous wheel, for example, the TE-37, which to my understanding is a true forged monoblock wheel, I owned a set. I just don't see why they wouldn't make the TE-37SL a forged monoblock wheel as well. Thanks for the info though.

yea I own a set of the original TE37 as well. The TE37-SL is about 30-40% cheaper than original TE37s, because they use flow form forging to reduce material cost, and also reduce the production cost/time as well. They're budget TE37s to simply put.
They are still excellent wheels however.
