she lost 60lbs and got new shoes today

Thought I would end up with more concave wheels, but saw these in person and loved them.

Need to take some better shots this weekend.

Thanks Yorgi. They are TSW Interlagos. Did quite a bit of research on them and they are light as hell and are tracked by enough people, they can't be too bad from a durability perspective.

Those do look great! When I first looked them up I couldn't believe my eyes, forged rims for $1200. Then I read more into it and it says Rotary Forged which is a cast process that creates rims that are a strength similar to forged.

The black and silver pictures online both look good. Nice find.

Thanks Mark. The weight difference is insane. I had my eyes on BC forged wheels, but the wife cut the budget after new tires and feeding my other hobby. I'm happy with them though. The finish is flawless. Time will tell how durable they are.

I am sure they are fine. If their marketing material says it is as strong as forged rims I'm sure it is. Write it and it is so!

Does your car feel faster? A guy on the m5 board said his lighter rims made a huge difference in performance , this in several races against a Corvette.

It's on the internet, so it MUST be true!

Best way to describe how the car feels now is more agile. Braking, accelerating and cornering "feel" more responsive, but that may also be my brain justifying the purchase.

Could be a placebo effect, or maybe it is real. Empirical data gathered by this guy says your butt test is accurate.

If you changed the tires at the same time that would also make a huge difference in the feel. I know it did for me.

Oh I know, tires were changed a month ago from beat up runflats to Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3. Like a new car after that.
