Suggestion for 19" wheels light, forged and strong. Aesthetics is important

High guys,
I would like to install rims that are light, forged and strong that could enhance driving, cornering, acceleration and braking. I had flowformed Vorsteiner VFF-103 which were light wheels. No tracking use. Aesthetics is important and must look good.

I was thinking of Dymag wheels. Any other suggestions would be appreciated (BBS, HRE, ADV1,) .

Thanks

Wheel aesthetics are all personal. I personally prefer monoblocks, eg BBS FI/RIA.
Whatís your budget? Cheap, strong, and light - pick 2.

I would look into VS Forged, thatís likely the route Iíll end up going. Very clean designs, your choice of whatever finish you want, and fully forged 19s for $2500. Around 19-20lbs each, and I think they do a
Black Friday sale for like $300 off every year!

Have you checked out fitment industries .com? they have a wide variety of selection and they tell you what fits your car. I usually check them first before buying wheels

Like you already mentioned OP, search the style you like in the brands you mentioned. You'll find a design you like. Since you aren't tracking it won't make a ton of a difference splitting ounces. Most of the extremely lightweight wheels I've seen aren't necessarily the best looking IMO.

Based on what you're looking for I'd go with the Titan TS-5's. They don't offer many finishes but seems to check every box you're looking for and look great. They look very similar to BBS Fi's.

The only 19s on this car that make me weak (besides ZCPs!) are BBS FIs. And your budget allows for them.

Forgeline is an excellent wheel company for your needs and also falls right into your price range.

Been real happy with the Signature Wheels I run on my race build. These are 18's but you can customize sizes & offsets. I run them on my M2 as well - 18's also on the track but the second pic is of the 20's that are getting ready to go on it as the dedicated street set.
