/// Forgestar F14 Group buy 18" CUSTOM OFFSETS \\\


What's up 1ADDICTS! I got the ok to run a Group buy with **********s for the F14's in 18" with CUSTOM OFFSETS and 4 different finishes!!! That's right! Whatever offsets you want whether square or staggered, you got it! YOU DECIDE!!!
Available finishes are:

Gunmetal Finish

Matte Black

Piano Black

Brushed Titanium


They are also VERY light:
Weights

•18x8.5 ET48 - 17.6 Lbs.

•18x9.5 ET48 - 18.4 Lbs.

•18x10 ET42 - 18.2 Lbs.

•18x12 ET68 - 20.0 Lbs.

I just bought my custom offset 19" F14's from them and LOVE em! I wanted to get a square set up and figured why not try the F14's out. So here's the deal:
Retail is $1249.00
GROUP BUY PRICE... ONLY $999!!! Plus *shipping and applicable CA tax. $250 SAVINGS!!!!
*Shipping: Per **********s website $99 standard within CONUS. International will be determined by **********s. Orders will be shipped from SoCal.
Catch...need 16 buyers to get this going. Once I get 15 more confirmed buyers the order will be processed. ALL payments will be sent to Kevin at **********s directly. Once Kevin gets all the funds the order will be sent. Wheels come with carbon Forgestar center caps or $30 more for BMW caps. These will clear BBK's up to 355 and NO spacers needed! *Depending on what offsets you order*

***UPDATE***
Group buy price is now set at ONLY $999.00!!! I will keep the list open until January 25 until 5pm PST.
**********s has now set up this GB on their website to take your order directly by clicking on this LINK
Please list as much detail to your order as possible so they can have it ready. Please list your car info, bore size, offsets, color, forum screen name, email, and CONTACT #!. Kevin, Alan, or Ron will call you back by Monday January 25 to go over your order and email you a special order form that needs to be filled out and sent back to them. If you are unsure about offsets, that's ok! They will assist you when they call you back to confirm your order.
Feel free to pm me with any questions or concerns

ETA COULD BE as early as 4 weeks turn around IF we send the order on 1/25. Forgestar will have enough barrels to accomodate this GB. As far as the concave look, as the wheel gets wider the more concave it will get. I've looked at TONS of pics of 9", 9.5", 10", and 11" widths and it seems that the offset doesn't really affect the outer portion of the wheel.
We NEED 16 CONFIRMED buyers to get the GB price of $999
Here's the prices if 16 aren't met:
5 CONFIRMED buyers $100 OFF retail price
10 CONFIRMED buyers $200 OFF retail price
16 CONFIRMED buyers $250 OFF retail price

*** UPDATE ***
You can order any bore size between 5x108 - 5x130 as long as it's an 18" wheel to get in on the GB price.
I already got some requests for Supra's and Honda's for the Daily drivers...

More pics from **********s:
Gunmetal Finish



Brushed Titanium



Piano Black



Any questions on offsets or concerns with order feel free to pm me. Just send me a pm with what color, offsets, and if you want the BMW center caps ($30 extra).
Here's some info about the wheels from the **********s website:
**********s is proud to offer you the BRAND NEW FORGESTAR Wheel Lineup with the latest technology in wheel production to bring you the best of both worlds. This brand new lineup utilizes a combination of the best methods of forging and casting methods both in the same wheel. This is called Flow Form Casting, and is used by companies such as BBS and Enkei. These wheels are made to order and can be made to fit your BMW with a large range of offsets.

Flow Form Casting is a production procedure that turns the wheel (or rim section) over a special mandrel and three hydraulic rollers using tremendous pressure. The pressure and turning then force the rim area to form against the mandrel, creating the shape and width of the rim. During Flow Forming, the rim actually "flows" down to create the full rim width. During Flow Forming, pressure applied to the cast rim actually changes its mechanical properties, so its strength and impact values become similar to those of a forged rim. That translates to up to 15% less weight when compared to a standard cast wheel.

CERTIFIED BY: SAE JWL VIA DOT Check it out HERE!

Warranty Info!!!
Forgestar warrants that wheels manufactured by Forgestar will be free from structural failure as long as the original retail purchaser owns the product. Forgestar further warrants to the original purchaser that products manufactured by Forgestar will be free from defects in material and workmanship under normal and intended use for a period of one year from retail purchase.

HERE is the link to more info on the wheels from the **********s website.

HERE is the link to Forgestars Homepage. Check out the Gallery...S W E E T rides there!

Kevin and Ron at **********s did a great job with my 19" order. They answered all my questions and kept me in the loop throughout the entire transaction!
Thanks!

definitely....
19's would be nice, just super worried about clearances. I don't want to have to worry about rolling fenders, etc. Want the biggest rear that will fit, and call it a day

I'm leaning towards the 9.5 although 10 is an interesting idea

Can anyone confirm this will clear the strut on the front wheels? I am pretty sure this will rub.

Is that 999 for all 4 or each? If it is for all 4 I may have to jump on this in the 18's for my 135. I just do not know what offset to run so it wont rubb with 235's in front and 255's rear Dunlop Star specs with stock suspension. The other issue is color. Flat black or gloss on a jet black 135. Too many choices

Price is for all 4... Need another 4 buyers tho! If you want in...just need 3!

Hey guys...Kevin posted this in his thread, recommended offsets for the 135:

18x8.5 et46
18x9.0 et50
18x9.5 et56

Now its up to you guys if you want to go lower on the offsets, like I said we can set that up for you!

Kevin

Hey Kevin, so we're 100% sure with that setup, there won't be any rubbing, right?

I sent Kevin a PM about all the questions about ET fitments and if any current customers had any rubbing issues.

I got the 1 year warranty from the Forgestar website. C'mon, guys just need 4 more to get the GB price of $999!!!!

Interested:

1) Would these still require the hubcentric rings for proper fitment?

2) What is the recommended offset to fit 225s up front and 255s in the back for a 135i with stock suspension? I am looking for as flush a fitment as possible without doing any modification.

3) Do you offer a wheel/tire/tpms package?

Thanks.

1. Yes.
2. I would recommend a 8.5 ET 46 /9.0 ET 50 for the tire sizes you listed above for a really flush fitment.
3. This GB is for the wheels only but let me find out from Kevin if he can work up something for you.
