BC Forged review

Got my wheels yesterday and wanted to post a quick review.

First, a big thanks to Sean and Ivan from PYSpeed. They gave me a killer deal and the communications was great.

Nice thing about these wheels is that you custom order them and they build them to spec. Custom colors are included in the price making them one of the best deals around on 2-piece modular forged.

Specs are:
FJ08
8.5 x 19 et40 22lbs
9.5 x 19 et50 24lbs

Matte gunmetal face with brushed aluminum lips, black barrels.

The finish and paint quality it outstanding bar none.
I ordered them on Dec 22nd and got them yesterday. Very quick turn around for custom forged wheels.

Needless to say I'm super impressed and can't wait to get them on my car (just waiting for the rear tires)

Also - sorry for having to post one photo at a time, cant seem to upload more then one photo to a post.

more photos in posts below

Wish I could do 19s, but I've bent two 18s and cracked one. 19s as a DD would just be asking for trouble here in NJ.

Im guessing you have a track set of wheels/tires too with your diff. 225 on an 8.5 wheel. Are you part of the herrafrush scene? Lol.
