Has anyone ever dealt with this company or their wheels? Looking into getting their Forged Specialties Concave Mesh Wheels...

EDIT 2/28: We spoke with Forged Specialties and the centers are US made but the lips are made in China.

EDIT 12/14: Just as I thought originally. They are 100% Chinese and have already begun cracking on several cars.

Yup Thats what I keep seeing and hearing. Needless to say, I'm not interested in these wheels anymore...

We actually dealt with the company (not Forged Specialties) in China one time and it ended up costing the customer more in the end after having to replace all the inners and getting them resealed at delivery. Then about 3 months later the chrome started coming apart.

Simply not worth it.

EDIT 2/28: As noted above Forged Specialties told us that the centers are US made but their lips are made in China.

EDIT 12/14: Just as I thought originally. They are 100% Chinese and have already begun cracking on several cars.
