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.
