Forgestar F14, finally

I'm guessing I'm the first with these on a G35, I know a G37 owner has gotten them, but I havent seen or heard about a G35 owner.

Specs:
19x10+20 front with 255/35/19 Hankook Ventus V12 EVO
19x11+33 rear with 295/30/19 Hankook Ventus V12 EVO

I know what you're saying, but going with a monochromatic setup is timeless I think. I'd really like some mag-blue, gold or some deep red wheels, but you can never make everyone happy. In a few years or so if they're due for paint, I may consider a different color

Not a fan of this company with the misleading brandname, but the concave is nice.

Why is the brand name misleading?

here's how they describe their process, seems similar to Enkei's MAT process, from their site:

"Flow Forming is a production procedure that turns the wheel (or rim section) over a special mandrel and three hydraulic rollers using tremendous pressure. The pressure and turning then force the rim area to form against the mandrel, creating the shape and width of the rim. During Flow Forming, the rim actually "flows" down to create the full rim width. During Flow Forming, pressure applied to the cast rim actually changes its mechanical properties, so its strength and impact values become similar to those of a forged rim. That translates to up to 15% less weight when compared to a standard cast wheel. Our technological breakthroughs in heat treating allow us to increase dent resistance without having to make the wheel heavier."

They put Forge in the name but they're not forged. I know for a fact that some people out there will be fooled and buy them thinking they're actually forged.

How do they quantify "similar"?

I want. they look just like CSL rims that i've wanted since the beginning of time. Did you have to buy a conversion kit or do these wheels come 5x114? I see you have 10 in front and 11 in back do you think i can still be agressive with 19x9+20F and 19x10+20R?

Also if you could PM me what you paid if you dont mind because i cant seem to find any vendor that sells them on this forum. thanks man
