Forgestar F14's in Bronzeburst

Well, after nearly 5 months of waiting, my Forgestars have arrived. Thanks to the folks at Trinity Autosports, the wheels are flawless and their customer service was top notch. Unfortunately, I will not be installing them on the car for a few months. I will be leaving Germany in July and don't want to ship the car with my new wheels on.

Anyways, here are some quick cellphone pics.

Forgestar F14's Bronzeburst metallic;19x9 fronts, 19x11 SDC rear.

Yea, it took a while, but to be fair, the folks at Trinity told me it would be a while from the start. I guess Forgestar waits until they gets certain number of orders before they build them.

I will definitely post pics once installed.

Thanks. It took me a while to figure out what color would go good with Lemans Blue. I like the results and can't wait to get them on the car.

Is there anyway you can weigh these? And what offset did you go with?

I went with the Forgestar recommended offsets, don't know what they are, but now I am curious and will look into it. As far as weights, I pulled the following off their website:

19 x 11 (25.7 lbs ) http://www.forgestar.com/test/FORGESTAR1911F14.pdf

19 x 9 (25.5 lbs) http://www.forgestar.com/test/FORGESTAR199F14.pdf

So, a slight weight savings over my stock ZCP's (25.4 lb F, 26.6 lb R)

Love the color and concavity of the rear wheels!
Weight is great too!

Can't wait to see them mounted
