**********s | Forgestar F14 19" Wheels only 22lbs!!!

Hello,

**********s is proud to offer you the BRAND NEW FORGESTAR Wheel Lineup.

These wheels are made using a method called Flow Form Casting. This is a process which gives the wheel the strength of a forged wheel and in most circumstances an even lighter wheel than your standard cast design.

There is another wheel on the market with the same design weighing in between 25-27lbs each. The Forgestar is obviously a better choice with around a 12lbs weight difference per set. Reducing weight always results in more power to the ground!

Feel free to shoot me a PM or Email if you have any questions at all. RJ************.com

Probably a typo, but do the 19x9's really weigh more than the 19x10s?

I doubled checked that, and it is correct, for whatever reason they actually do.

That's because with a 19x10 wheel, you'd have a much lower offset VS. a 9" wheel. Theres less metal in the hub as a result of the lower offset which explains why the 10's weigh less.

You mean higher offset

With a higher offset, this is true to a certain extent. The main explanation would be that a wider width rear wheel uses less padding material in the center of the barrel. This is due to the rear not requiring much clearance for larger front breaks.
