18's are in progress! There are still a few spots for the late comers (yes, that's you!).

We're getting some more PM's about the 19's, so we will be starting that up if we can get 5 deposits going as well!

Are these forged aluminum? How much do they weigh per wheel?

The speedometer now shows just under 59 mph with the stock 17's when my gps speed is 60 mph.
Should be barely noticeable. My favorite handy dandy tire size calculator shows .1" Diameter, .2" total circumference difference.

FYI, it's a great tool. Uses Java:

Hi im new to the wheel thing. I am wondering if these wheels are a great intro price, can you tell me what the regular price for these wheels would be? Thanks!
Also, would the19's fit a 2012 S model (stock) without any modification?

Gotta find cash for a Prokit here as well. Doubt I'll put the wheels on until I've got the drop in place.

These are not forged...forged wheels start at $3,000 and up. We can have these made in forged if desired. They will weigh about 22lbs.

A drop is definitely key to a successful overall look!

Yes, plug and play without modifications, more aggressive OE+ offset, and lowered suspension compatible.

We're looking to get the 19's started as well. that will do well with those looking for a bigger wheel "look", over the sportier look.

I can get forged for around $600/wheel for 18", that's $2400 for all 4 from Trueforged.
And they can duplicate the M310 and M510.

That may be the best solution for you. However, different strokes for different folks. We're aiming for a plug and play solution for the Focus for $850 for the 18's - almost the cost of one Forged wheel. Not everyone is looking to spend that much on wheels.

In regards to strength, as I'm sure that will come up. Forged wheels are lighter and stronger, but not fool proof. I've owned several forged wheels and cast wheels. Having bent both and put both under similar stress situations, (track, daily, and drifting), I see the benefit of Forged being that you can create them in a fitment specific to your vehicle and needs, as well as customizing them in process to your wildest desires. However, if you like this wheel design and the fitment, in my opinion, I can't see too many scenarios where you would choose to spend 3-4 times as much for the forged version of it. But again, that's just my opinion. To some, those few lbs of savings is worth the cost. I can dig that.

But not everyone has the same desire and would rather ration their budget for wheels, springs, and other bits instead of just forged wheels. And that's where we fit in.

Nothing in life is fool proof, but with a life time warranty, I won't have to worry much about it.
