I'm surprised nobody has mentioned 360 forged. Their customer service is a big plus as well.

Don't forget to mention that the Advan RS is cast and not forged.

I would jump in in the RAC Monolite Group Buy. These will be the best wheels for our cars IMO. Light & Very Strong

Hard to believe but true.. the stock 19s rock for the price/performance ratio! They even faster round the track than the 18s with the same kind of tires(MPS) Custom paint, polish or powder coat for an individual unique look and they the best bang for buck forged wheel you gonna find.

But they weigh about the same... Is there really an advantage to the stock 19 over stock 18 on the track?

How do you come up with that? Most people use 18" wheels for the track..

TE37's/G2 or Advan RS.

And for the track, people use 18's because the most of the best performing tires and R compounds run 18" size or less.

As far as what? Just in general? It is hard to do that, as some of these wheels are WAY different than the others. Some I would consider light weight race wheels, and some I would consider pimp'n wheels. Some of these brands have both. Rays, Neez, and Advan are some good light weight racing wheels. VMR, 360 Forged, & HRE are good looking wheels, but no always the lightest. HRE does have some light weight wheels though, in the Comp series.

NEEZ, RAYS, BBS (forged), RAC are at the top of the wheel food chain.

If you asking about the ranking in regards to their overall QUALITY, this is how they rank:

1. NEEZ (8000 TON Forged)
2 RAYS (8000 TON Forged)
3. HRE (4000 TON Forged)
4. ADVAN RS (Flow-Formed CAST)
5. VMR (Gravity CAST)

360 forged? lol...you've got to be kidding me!
