I gotta say that those are the first aftermarket wheels that I like on the V. I really think the stockers are great, but those got me thinkin....

Thanks for all the compliments :)

They are Forgeline SP3P's 19x8.5's and 19x10's, I got a really good deal on them, and they cost me right at $5500 with tires. They actually only took about 4 weeks to get once I finaly made up my mind and ordered them.

The car is lowered with Eibach's.

Split spoke, unlike CCW's which look kind of empty in the middle and plain by comparison. IMO.

How do like the Eibach's?? Are they a progressive or a linear rate? Do you know what rate they are??

I had the first set of Forgelines, nice wheels. Actually the rears should be 9.5" . A 10" would rub with a lowered car.

CCW told me they couldn't make a 9.5 which is the right size for the V.

Forgeline wanted to make me 9.5's , but I sent them the spec's to make me 10's, it is the first set they have done. The tires rubbed just a bit with the CTS sport shocks in the back, so I put me Stock V shocks back in with the spacers and I have no probs at all with 295 tires out back. :)

Very nice wheels indeed! :bouncy:

Did you order direct from the manufacturer or buy from one of the authorized vendors?

SilverV
03-06-06, 11:37 AM
Not sure on the dish in the rear, looks to be about 2 1/2".

I ordered them through a friend of mine at Discount Tire, he was able to get a really good price from Forgeline.

Carnalsupply
03-06-06, 02:34 PM
Besides the tire size, I'm wondering if you know the backspacing for both the front and rear?

Nice looking wheels, good choise, I see that you are running Eibach springs, I also have them on my V, but the rear of the car seems to be alot higher that the front, what you do to make the car more even with the front?

03-06-06, 02:51 PM
as far as lowering it, I put the eibach's in with CTS sport shocks in the back, nothing speacial up front.

I put my Stock V shocks back in yesterday, as the rear was slightly rubbing over hard bumps with the standard CTS shocks. The V shocks did raise the back end a little bit, but it still looks nice in my opinion.

Those pics were taken with the CTS sport shocks.

SilverV one final question and then I'm sold...are the wheels machined to accept the tire pressure sensors?

SilverV
03-06-06, 03:05 PM
because of the hidden valve stem on these they are not machined to accept the TPS's.

However, Discount Tire made me some relocation brackets and mouned the sensors inside the rim, it came out very nice and they work perfect :)

Forgeline sent some relocation brackets that were not as nice, so I did not use them.

Interesting, my set had aluminum brackets epoxied to the rim inside. I just bolted the sensors on. They worked fine.

SilverV
03-06-06, 03:52 PM
yeah Forgeline sent the same alum. brackets you prob had, except they told me to use clear silione and stick to the rim at the time of tire mounting :(

I feared that would not dry in time, or hold worth a crap, so Dicount Tire had some that bolted to the hidden valve stem, and then the senson bolted to that, no glue or silicone. It came out great, and has worked perfect so far.

With the 275 I notice a big difference, the 295 must be sweet.

I'm interested in the offsets also. The rear seem to tuck into the wheel well more than my CCW's. Also, what brand tire are you running?

Thanks, Mickey

Great looking wheels Silver!

Not to be a pessimist, but you should pull the rear wheels off after a few hundred miles and check the trailing arms to any rubbing.

SilverV
03-07-06, 10:15 AM
I have the offsets written down somewhere, I will just have to find them, as soon as I do I will post them up.

As far as tires, I went with Michelin PS2's, no rubbing in the back, and its not even close to the trailing arms. We even test fit a 305 tire, and it did not rub the trailing arm either.

The CCW 10'' CCW wheels are exactly 1/8" away from the trailing arm. The tire is approx 1/4" or less from the inner fender well of the body in front. They can go in no further as there is some movement. On a lowered car you will get some rubbing, guaranteed. Standard height, no problem. Keep in mind that one company's 10" wheel isnt exactly the same as another. I have seen bead dimensions and rim thickness vary as muh as 1/2 ". That is a lot.

I'm thinking of selling my stocks to replace them for really aggressive 18" staggered track wheel. These forgeline's seem to fit nice.:D

:yeah:
The trailing arms move up and down as the car moves up and down. So it'll look like you have lots of clearance when parked, but drive over bumpy roads, potholes, etc... and :mad:

They shouldnt have any problem with rubbing the trailing arms at all.

I also have a few more pics of the car....I just need to resize them.

Inside spacing is tight as hell but clears. Its the outside tha's NG. I lowered the rear to try it out. The tires rub on the bumps. A 9.5" is still the optimum for the V.

How much did you lower the rear? I've been thinking of doing the same....

Those are nice wheels but I'm with florian! For that much dough I am going with heads and cam or maggie! Do the eibachs change the ride much? They look awesome too! I don't understand how it looks like the back dropped more but they say that the front drops 1.6" and the rear 1.2"! Stock, mine looks much higher in the back so wouldn't you think it would be more in the back than the front? At any rate if that is the kit to get then I may have to do it. Looks much better!
