    I spoke with a potential customer a month ago that ran P51 wheels on his S550. He tracked his car pretty regularly, and had one of them crack. Caliper clearance on the GT350 is also limited.

    Again, food for thought.

    Good point Terrance.

    On those P51s or any wheel, I'm looking for 19x9-10" up front and 18x11-12" out back.
    I didn't see any 18" P51 offerings.
    Any one got a link for a split 5-spoke 19/18" combo?

    Maybe I've missed it somewhere but, on the ViBE CF Replica can they be run square track setup that can be run with a spacer? Are they recommended for track use?

    Yes, These forged wheels are track proven.

    We just had a event here in Buttonwillow, CA and one of the members **Raiderjatt02* was on the track set up 19x11+50mm all around with 305/30/19's .

    Both Forged Wheels & Michelin Cup2's came in at 50lbs mounted together.

    We also had the R Specs in 19x11 19x11.5 with Michelin's on the track.

    Wow... thats pretty steep. Is this simply because R owners don’t have many options? I feel like I need to know why the pricepoint on a set of forged wheels is so high.

    You must not have shopped around for forged wheels before. If you think $3900 is high, don't ever look at the prices of HRE forged wheels. Your eyeballs will bleed.

    Like they mention other big name brands such as HRE, Vossen, ADV1, Brixton Forged, Klassen ID pricing starts at $6-$8k. a set **starting** or more due to that they are all made in the US.
    But when manufactures bring forgings from over seas or if they do the process overseas the cost of the wheels drop a huge amount such as BC Forged and other brands at $2500-3k a set.

    The forgings we are using are all made in Southern California and the full process is done in Southern California.

    Built in the USA :)

    That's a strange way of cutting the spokes. I guess expanding a small hole is safer than risking a large piece of aluminum flying off by cutting the opening in one pass.

    One pass? Now that would be strange. And end up being very expensive!
