Gentlemen, please. Please bring it back on-topic--I need more of a venue to rationalize buying cast "forged" wheels for my used Ferrari.

That dude has ADV.1 wheels on his 5000HP Lambo that never gets driven. You need more proof?

Don't care for all the ADV1, BC, or HRE stuff.

Got two set of Volks, TE37SL Black Edition and G25, love them.

If I get an exotic one day, I will either use the OEM wheels or get some BBS FIs.

From the sound of things I've come to the conclusion that exotic car owners like ADV1 coz they are like those massive amazing looking fake boobs. Sure they look good but they don't function nor are they up to the task of genuine ones be it for feeding purposes or the squeeze test. And other brands like Volks and BBS are like a pair of perfectly shaped albeit a bit naturally and common looking breast.

Rich folks just wants the girl for show you think they do cardio to make use of them? He'll no. ADV1 it is.

Exactly how is a wheel supposed to "function". This is a serious question. A forged monoblock wheel is light, strong, and hopefully perfectly round, so how is it dysfunctional? What makes Volks and BBS better? Is there something about their construction process that is superior to ADV1?

Yes. Volks are forged on a single press. Look up how they're made. Adv knows they make boutique wheels and that's fine.

There should be many cars with ADV1s that sometimes are driven hard, either on track days, drag strip, rally, spirited mountain driving, etc.
Here are Corvette and M6 with ADV1s drifting on the track:

I'm not lying once i thought about pulling the trigger on a set of their wheels but just a quick thinking threw that idea off.

Do they have a history of making shitty products? Yes.
Did they pulled scumbag moves on people? Yes.
Did they constantly lie about their products? Yes.
Do they have a douchey customer base? Yes.

The most important aspect in my eyes when dealing with suppliers is their reputation. I do not do any sort of dealing with someone who scammed people in the past. The truth is Jordan scammed people, and with buying his wheels i'm declaring that i countenance such act.

I'd replace item #4 (as I don't really care about that), with
Do they have ANY type of real racing experience?

But otherwise, I agree

But they have "cool" vids of thier wheels drifting!!
And lets not forget about that TUV certificate have supposedly have, but the numbers still don't show a proper TUV certificate.
