    EDIT: Forgestar just sent us pics of the wheels being machined. It seems we are closing in on our delivery date finally.

    Wheels look great! Is 24 pounds considered lightweight these days or lightweight for 19's perhaps? Are the stock wheels not in this neighborhood 24-25 pounds?

    I cant wait to see the titanium ones on a platnium V. If they look good then ill buy them asap. I just hope theres no issues with the lowered Vs.

    To paraphrase myself from the very first post: the stock 18x8.5" wheels weigh 25 lbs. The the 19x9" and 19x10" Forgestar F14 wheels should weigh 24.1 and 24.7 lbs, respectively.

    Re: Forgestar F14 Wheels Entering Production (6x115 - FINALLY!)

    Just purchased tires. Did a price comparison between several vendors, including Tire Rack and Discount Tire. Jesse @ Discount Tire beat Tire Rack on the phone. Paid $724, including shipping, for two 245/40-19 and two 285/35-19 Hankook Ventus V12 evo K110 tires. Tire Rack (next lowest price) was $902 including shipping.

    Now I need to find a good set of lugs. Recommendations? I'm thinking chrome or burnt black and red, but I haven't decided anything yet, really. Anyone have experience with aluminum lugs?

    I'm probably going to step up to that size fronts, I'm hoping the extra sidewall will preserve the rim a little better. Do you have Jesse's extension? I'd like to jump in on that deal!

    Jesse's phone number at Discount Tire is (800) 589-6789 x51820. I'm not sure if he'll give you the same price unless you jump through the price match hoops on their website. It's kind of a long shot, but he might remember the price match he did for me if you tell him that you're a friend of Ryan's and you're also running a Cadillac CTS-V with the new, custom Forgestar F14 wheels.

    FWIW, the 40% profile Ventus V12 puts you at 26.7" OD, which is where you're supposed to be in the first place.

    Oh, and don't forget about the $80 off MIR that Hankook is doing.

    Re: Forgestar F14 Wheels Entering Production (6x115 - FINALLY!)

    So I'm catching up with the details on this thread and realize that I may have missed the boat slightly. I'm thinking of purchasing a set after the fact but I have some questions that some of you may have answers for.

    -Are any of you guys lowered? Specifically using H&R springs and MM spacers?
    -From what I've read these rims should have more clearance to the trailing arm, correct?
    -What is everyone planning to do for hardware/lugs?

    Thanks in advance,
    John

    I'm very significantly lowered on Ground Control bushings and custom 8" Eibach 650 lb-in springs.

    These wheels will have less clearance to the trailing arms than stock, but a few millimeters more than Linea Corse LC855 wheels that definitely rub. It's anyone's guess as to whether you'll rub during hard cornering with stock trailing arms.

    Hardware wise, Forgestar recommends 245/40-19 and 275/35-19 tires. You might be able to do 255 tires in front if you're at stock height. Otherwise, I think you're going to have to run 245s. Stock with 275s in the rear unless you have aftermarket trailing arms.

    The wheels come with Forgestar end caps. The Cadillac ones won't fit because they're too big. I'm going with Gorilla keyed lug nuts.
