They do indeed look very nice. Im not normally a fan of that kind of design but i bet they look good on the ISF. Got a pic of Oarngemig's ISF on them?

Yes, bros I have the WEDs. They're forged and much lighter than OEMs at less than 9kg per wheel. I still think that the ISF's better lap time against the C63 in our magazine's comparo was partly due to it. he he he.. But there is noticable improvement especially when exiting from curves at the track. I have 8 in. up front and 9s at the rear but offsets are such that they stick out a bit more. I think they are 35 and 45 respectively. I use my original Pilots Sports for tires and there's a bit of rubbing on the rear but not enough to cause significant damage.

I don't think they are forged. I've been trying to find information about how they are made, forged or cast and haven't found much information. I think though they are either cast or flow formed...Darshana S..

oarngemig , so what you are saying is that 9's up front and 10's in the rear will be to big due to the offset ? kindly advise

Yes, Kazaks, 10in for the rear will not work especially with my offset. Try contacting them and see if they have other offsets. For the front there seems to be more room, I just don't know if you put a 9 in if it will touch the fenders liners when you turn the wheel to lock. Mine is alright as it stands.

I can't remember how much I paid for them, I know it was quite reasonable. I got them from the Tom's/TRD distributor in (Mongkok) Hong Kong last January. I just fell in love with them when I carried a piece and noticed how light it was.

There are pics on the gallery if you care to see them mounted on the ISF. Sorry for the quality of the pics, not the greatest. It also has the blue band and I got the flat finish.

Yes, it is. It's Royal blue actually and blends well with the car especially when in motion, I hear. On the highway, people driving alongside only see the rotor, the 6-pot caliper, and the blue band. The wheel design and finish sort of efaces itself. Neat.

I was almost tempted to get the polished one which I think came in like a dark gun metal grey, but I opted for the less flashy.

I have the Blue Chrome metallic in a 19X9 and 19X10. Just put them on and tried all sorts of ways to make them rub but no rubbing issues so far. The only thing I have not done is put 4 people and some cargo in it. Mounted them with PS2's. Except for the 2 month wait, I'm pretty happy with it. I'll try to post pics.
oarngemig,, hope all is well with the storm, I know that Magallanes got hit pretty hard as well as some of Dasma.

Whatever the cost of the flats (flat finish, that is), I beleive that the blue chrome was anotherr 3 bills approx. on top of that. Slightly more than 3 k with mounting and balancing plus the tires. FYI for all, I opted to buy a set of tpms to program into the car making the car think it's a set of snows. Set it on "b" and the TPMS light goes away. My dealer was nice enough to program it under warranty. As stated, I drove at 45 degrees on steep driveways and have driven about 100 miles with 2 peeps in the car and no rubbing. Must be the lower (35's and 30's) tires but all told is slightly smaller by just a hair. I'll keep you all posted as far as rubbing is concerned but with the Bay Bridge the way it is, the car ain't goin too far....for now

Takes one to know one...I'm referring to your name.. lol. So you got the 9s and 10s and no problem ha. Now I'm jealous. What size tires did you put? As you said it could be the series 35s and 30s that's gotten you away from the rubbing. Mine rubs but very lightly, left rear, actually mostly on the track at BRC when taking a reducing right hander on third. You can imagine it's a pretty tight one, and oh only when I have a passenger at the rear. And the rubbing is really not that much for me to do something with the lip. I just don't know what happens when I change tires. I think I'll try on the new Yoko Neovas or Bridge RE 011.

Yes Maga and Dasma were hit pretty bad. I have some nasty cars in my shop now which were under water, several STis, a Range Rover, a 6-door Benz, among others. It's a nighmare rehabilitating them.

I know of an F355 that was floating in the waters of Magallanes. I was in Singapore for the F1 when it happened though. Thank God, or I could have been trapped since I'm always out on weekends. I sure wouldn't want to see my blue baby floating. By the way we have another nasty one making land fall tomorrow. Pray for your mama land, bro.
