My new Forgeline wheels

So I just purchased a set of these wheels in 19 x 9's and 19x 10's for my new Boss.They are also the correct off sets 42 and 45.I am familiar with Forgeline thru my Porsche racing days..They are currently running wheels in Grand Am.The wheels are 18 and 19lbs each! An excellent wheel! I am very excited that they are making them for the Boss!See ya unsprung weight!

Those are nice Ron but a touch rich for my budget. I call dibs on them when you sell them next fall at half off. Really. ;D
 
I've always loved Advan RCIIs, I think the closest fitment would be 18x9.5 with 35 offset, but that might not be enough offset. Plus they are discontinued.

35 mm offset is plenty. That's the offset on two sets of 18 x 9.5 track wheels I use.

Your post is going to cost me a lot of money. I'll PM you at some point about tire fitment if I find a set in a good color, as they are discontinued.

How do you like them?
Dot 5 ,why would I sell them next year?
Gary ,The dealer is holding my parts for me.
I like the Forgeline for several reasons,exact fitiments ,strenth and light weight .Man the last thing you want is a broken wheel under hard driving .

Because you'll sell your 2013 LS and buy a new 991 GT3 RS. ;)
Have 1 Porsche thats enough.Over priced for what you get.Don't get me wrong I love P cars ,raced them for 18years.But the Boss is such a value for what you get.Plus I have a 2012 GTR that smokes Porsches for half the price.I'm generally not a seller but a keeper.If you knew my circumstances you would understand why was able to trade /sell my Boss to get a 2013.
Pm me if you really want to know.

And let's be clear. I have first dibs on all parts Ron sells..... :eek:

The wheels look great Ron. What color are you going with?

Nice. I think I will get a set of the motorsport versions. Couple questions.

1) What retailer did you use to buy them?
2) What tires are you strapping on them?

Cool!
