Let me get this straight... You are swapping out parts designed by some of the top engineers in the world because some guys sponsored by a company told you it's "better??" But when you ask the same guy about tracking, "oh no, I have a kid now" or "I just detailed my car." or "i just got new tires."

Awesome and shows the difference

Anyone note that the cast is said to have the same metal structure as the forged but no mention of strength

The hot forged is the way to go

Nice find

Just remember, the wheel is anodized and prone to discoloration. The wheels on my NSX, Volk SF-Winning have a stain from a water spot caused by hard water.
