Found the wheels I want. What do u guys think? D2FORGED

This is a brand new wheel company. I saw their wheels and fell in love lol. I will be getting The VS1.


Best part about it is that u can customize the whole wheel to exactly the way u want it. Check out this viper:



I will basically b doing the same exact thing just where this is red I will go with white, and instead of glossy I will go with matte, and probably have the studs matte as well. Supposed to b made from the best forged aluminum and amongst the highest quality of wheels. What do u guys think?

Looks like a copy of the Forged 360 Mesh 8 wheels.

LOL U guys are funny with the copy. So then I guess the 360 forged Mesh 8 wheel looks like a copy of the Enkreuz H8R wheel?

Point is, there a million wheels out there that look if not exactly alike very similar, thats what happens when something is hot. Whats important here is how the wheel is made and from what, which happens to b top notch.

Can very easily go with the 360forged being that they are priced very similar, but these guys offer a pretty good deal, customization wise.

You probably hit the nail on the head there that they may have copied from H&R.

I was quit happy with Forged 360 when I ordered my Mesh 8's, there option on finishes I thought was priced reasonable well, a good combination available also.

As I live in Australia I felt that Forged 360 had been around a lot longer and as there were no dealers in Australia so I dealt with them direct and if I have a warranty problem I don't have a middle man in the way.


Worked out well.

Those wheels look ok, all you need to do is talk to a few people who have dealt with this company and that you are happy to go ahead with the purchase.

Wow those wheels are very nice! For those saying they look like 360 mesh 8's, many wheels look the same: these wheels, mesh 8's, H8r,s 840'rs, and HRE 790, etc.
