    V2 wheels

    Has anyone done this? Obviously it will require a 5 lug conversion but I've searched for 30 minutes and haven't found anything.

    Thanks!

    Do you like them that much? Personally, I like the V1 wheels better. Except for the V2 wheels being forged, I don't think they're such a big deal.

    If you do a 5 lug swap, go for the world of wheels that has been opened to you...

    ^^ I agree. Used V2 wheels are no bargain either, might as well get something better.

    Re: V2 wheels

    I like the way they look....I'm a sucker for factory wheels and think these would be a nice upgrade without being a "big deal". Experience has taught me that factory wheels tend to hold up well to everyday use and polishing anything on a regular basis isn't what i want to do in my spare time. I don't baby cars anymore and I need something tough.

    I also like the factory V1 wheels but the V2 wheels are a bit bigger and I would think they would have about the same offsets making for a fairly easy swap if you go 5 lug. Plus we already know they clear the V2 calipers if I ever decide to move in that direction.

    Somebody somewhere has got to have tried this.....

    You are aware that Forgestar is about to begin accepting orders for a 19", six lug variant of the F14 wheel, right? More here:

    Re: V2 wheels

    I like those options but....they look like vette, camaro and bmw wheels and in my opinion, that's where they belong because that's what they were designed for.

    I'm not going to the car show, I just want something a little bigger that should fit, be durable and will clear v2 calipers.

    Lets try this....

    What are the factory v1 wheel offsets?

    common wheels are designed to SELL, not designed to be on a particular make of car. good luck

    Re: V2 wheels

    Shady has it right, aftermarket rim manufacturers make rims to sell not for each individual car. That's why putting Cadillac wheels on a Cadillac makes sense to me but it looks like spacers will be needed.

    If my information and math are right, the v2 fronts are 9" wide and have a 51mm offset which would push the inner lip of the wheel inboard on a v1 by roughly 15 or 16mm? Wonder if a 1/4" spacer would be enough here and if so, what size tires are you guys running on a 19 inch wheel?

    Again, if my info and math are right, the v2 rears are 9.5" with a 56mm offset which would push the inner lip of the wheel inboard by close to an inch. Searching the forum, it would seem there's about 3/4" to play with in the rear wheel house using stock rim and tires sizes so this is going to be a tight squeeze with just a 1/4" spacer.

    Relevant comments are appreciated!
