    Stock tpms tire sensors will work with the f14. They fit through our valve stem hole with no issues.

    Hey man , there’s some confusion on the forums. Some guys are saying you told them the stock Tire Pressure Monitor Sensors would fit, but on the phone, you told me they wouldn’t. Can you shed some light on this?

    Thanks,

    Shane,

    We just got the first 19x10 +42 F14 wheel fresh out of the new tooling and put it on the scale.

    link to image below, 24.8 lbs.

    http://www.forgestar.com/blog/pics/1910426.jpg

    It is now going to the testing lab for Rotary Bending Fatigue, 13-degree Impact @ 0-degrres, 13-degree impact @ spoke, Radial Load Endurance and Radial Load Fatigue physical testing.

    Now we are working on the 19x9.

    Forgestar




    F'n badass!!!

    I'm liking That's the titanium in the pic?

    It's 19x9 front right? 19x10 rear.

    You might find this "making of" Forgestar wheels video interesting (minus the terrible music).

    So I take it you're not a fan of hiphop.

    What's the word on trailing arms? I think we've established that if it's lowered, we need to upgrade. What if I monster truck it for a bit? Will I need to replace them anyway?

    I'm not sure. Take a look at these pictures and see what you make of them. The first and last were taken by me when my rear was off the ground. I know for a fact that when I take the car off the jacks, those trailing arms flatten out a lot. When you corner, they flex. I'm not sure what the delta is on the change in clearance from normal ride height to lowered, but regardless, it's going to be freaking close with the F14's protruding 19mm closer to those trailing arms.

    Clearance to stock wheels with KillerNoodle trailing arms.

    Rand49er's Linea Corse LC855 to stock trailing arms (note: +5mm more inner protrusion than F14s).

    the forgestar have 5mm more clearance on the inside so there should be no rubbing issues

    ----------

    That is brushed titanium in the pic. I think Titanium personally looks the best on the F14

    Brushed Titanium, the face is machined and the windows are titanium




    Titanium 2 stage powdercoat

    I talked to Peter about this very thing. It seems like the first wheels (Porsche) are the "silver" and the second set of "two-stage" wheels is the actual titanium. He said the titanium is similar to a gunmetal, only lighter. Hope that helps.

    I'm ordering titanium because I want that second set of "two-stage" wheels.
