    Hi Paul! How far does a 305 tire poke out from the 10.5 wide CTS-V sedan wheel well.l?

    A 305 tire is 12" wide. The true width of a Forgestar 10.5" wheel is 11.5" (1" larger). So a 305 will poke over the edge of the wheel by .25" on each side.

    On a Coupe of Sedan? The problem is that we can push the offsets to achieve a very flush fitment but the concavity profile is some what limited on the V.

    Paul what's the deepest concave that can ve fitted on a V sedan? I'm looking at either F14 or CF10 20s 10.5 or 11in wide. I'll be dropping the V on Eibachs

    I recommend going with the 10.5 sizing. These is no depth difference on the deep concave wheels from Forgestar. A 20x9.5 deep concave has the same depth as a 20x12 deep concave. So if your primary reason for going wider is a deeper concave, that won't be necessary as their is no concavity profile difference.

    That is a bummer, is there a technical reason they aren't deeper as width increases?

    Will the f14f wheels fit! The sedan would love a set!

    ----------

    What about the F10's with a 3.5 lip? How much is this set?

    I'm also curious to know if the F14F will fit and how much lip we can get on a sedan.

    According to Paul the F10s have been discontinued.

    What size of a lip do you get with the f14f? Can you get a larger with pass a 20x10?

    The F14's are step lipped, so I suspect regardless of barrel width you'll still only get about 1 1/4" lip before the step to the barrel. Pretty sure same is true with F5's.

    Sorry for the late reply, crazy week here

    It just comes down to manufacturing cost. Forgestar offers a quality custom wheel at a low price. In order to do this they are unable to offer width/offset based concavity. Their deep concave wheels have a very nice depth to them and are as deep as you could go on a Coupe or Sedan due to the high offset nature of these cars. So you really are not gaining much concave profile by going to a more expensive wheel that bases profile on width and offset.

    The F14F has a flat lip and is a 2-Piece wheel. You can only get so much width and lip out of a 2-Piece construction. On the CTS-V Sedan, I would expect 1-1.5" lip on the 20x8.5 and 3-3-5" lip on the 20x10.

    Hi Paul. That lip size is good enough for me. Please quote me a set of F14F for the sedan as well as F14 shipped to Dubai.

    How much lighter will a similarly designed fully forged wheel compared to a rotary forged design like the F14?
