Opinion on best wheel manufacturer

I'd like to get some thoughts on what everyone thinks is the best manufacturer of wheels for the F10? Vossen? ACS? Vorsteiner?

I always thought it's just preference.
After you get to a certain price, it's all up to which look you like best.

I prefer BBS, but I don't think anyone actually knows which brand is the best. That's nearly as controversial as claiming which brand of car is the best, since "the best" is highly subjective.

None of the ones you listed.

Wheel companies are a dime a dozen nowadays and most of them don't even make their own wheels. Theres only a few key companies that makes wheels for all of the smaller bushiness.

Styling aside my list of the BEST wheel companies out there - BBS, VOLK, FORGELINE. They make wheels good enough to be on legit racing teams plus have the history to back up their integrity.

If you're looking to reduce unsprung weight, take a look at Advan and/or Morr wheels. Generally forged wheels (and a couple of processes claiming to be close to forged) are lightest, you can drop 10-15 lbs per wheel or more over stock wheels. Forged wheels are also generally more expensive.
