new wheels

Long wait but looks good.

Forged1 Five Split 20"

Yes I copied the guy from thailand. He deserves credit for being the first.

This was from jorge over at wheeladdicts
Was a bit annoyed that the wait took 10 to 11 eeeks vs the estimate of 4 to 5 weeks but the wheel hop that did the install said that I was pretty fast so I guess can thank jorge for that. Haven't tried running it on bumpy roads so dunno if it rubs...suspect it will

Is your suspension stock or lowered? Seems to be minimal wheel gap which looks nice

Stock adaptive suspension. Yah..dun see the need to lower..i might switch to HR springs..but dun see the need for KW. The shop was worried that there might be huge rub..so we might remove the wheel well inside if that becomes an issue (artificial mud guard anyways).

didn't realize how heavy the stock 19" with RFTs were until switched to these.First time i drove it i thought it was psychological that it felt faster..but while pressing on gas while at about 30KM can tell it picks up a bit faster..lower unsprung rate clearly.

Also..20" PSS is softer than 19" rfts..i always wondered why pple said that stock M suspension on Sport+ is soft..i now realize it must be them on different tires..on stock tires.its jittery and the coins in the car vibrate..on the PSS..Sport+ feels softer..so comfortable with changing springs to HR

I ordered it from PYSpeed..i called both HK and US to see whichever place had it in stock. I wanted it in red and thye only had it in 6pot for red so got it there..in HK..it cost about the same..maybe 1-3K more expensive in HKD..but the problem is u dunno how reliable the wait time is...still..even with it in stock..took about 3-4 weeks to get it.

Nice, but they look too big for the car.

I think 19" is the right size, but yours look good too!
