Boss Wheel Options

After looking at the Enkei wheels cloud9 purchased I started looking at other wheel options for the Boss. Mine will be for looks but if I'm changing wheels I want them to be lighter. I was originally looking at adding the LS wheels but after a few others weighed them they are probably about the same weight at the Boss wheels so that's out. I've been looking at the TSW Nurburgrings in a 19x9 and 19x9.5. The 9" wide wheels are 21 lbs. while the 10.5" wide are 23 lbs. I do not have the weight of the 9.5" wide wheels but lets call it 22 lbs for now. The stock Boss and LS wheels are approximately 30 lbs each. They have the proper offsets on the 9 and 9.5 wheels but I'm not sure about the 10.5's. They also have a similar look to the BBS wheels on the 302R. TSW has a new production process called rotary forged but these are not real forged wheels although they are supposed to be stronger and lighter.

Anyone else looking at wheel options? If so post links to what you are looking at.

The rotatory forging is the same process Forged Star uses and calls flow forming or something like that.
 
The second photo looks similar to the wheel on the alleged 2013 GT500. I like the wheel in these photos.

Cool, I hope the weather holds I'll be there next Tues - Thurs.
 
FWIW I have gotten a ton of compliments on the factory wheels already. I've had a few enthusiasts ask me if I had already changed the wheels, they were surprised factory wheels would look so good.
