Gloss black Forgestar F14 on AW E92

Finally got these. Yes, I caved on black wheels. I love the look and the price is unreal. Big thanks to Ron at **********s... he provided exceptional customer service throughout the process.

Wheels are Forgestar F14 in gloss black, 19x9 +20 F and 19x11 +33 R.

Tires are Hankook Ventus V12 Evo 245/35/19 F and 305/30/19 R. I switched my tire choice from Invos to these based on the very favorable reviews they received in some of the articles posted in this forum. So far they seem fine but I haven't pushed them.

Car is at stock height right now, I have H&R Sports in the trunk, debating whether to install them. We'll see.

Note that these pics were spur of the moment and not set up. I just snapped a few with my D90 on Auto, and it shows. The pics don't really do the finish justice... it pops in any light, even at night.

I think CF mirrors would really look good with the cars black and white theme and the CF roof on the car.

I'm pretty sure they have 18's for the import scene. No reason they can't make them for this car too.

How do you find the quality? Any issues with balancing? I'm still waiting for the titanium-colored 18" set I ordered back on 8/5. I just don't care for black wheels, but that's just me.
