ForgeStar F14 Wheels

Since the thread in the dedicated section is locked here's a couple pics of the wheels on the car.

I liked the center badges but after a full 20 minute session, they pretty fell off since they got more or less melted (they didn't melt but they got hot and the rubber that is used to keep them in place was damaged) so I'll have to do without them :)

The car did fairly well, but I have to get the brake fluid flushed completely because I think there are still air bubbles in there (either the master cylinder and/or the ABS system).

Wheels look good, sounds like you're still using it hard on the track!

Awesome, thanks for posting the pics Emmanuel!

The 17"F14s look incredible on the ST and make the perfect set of track wheels!

Post some more pics when you get the chance, love how they came out!

Some rtv silicone should hold the center caps on.
Amazon.com: rtv silicone
clear is good for 400 degrees and the red is good through 650...The center caps shouldnt be seeing over 400 often, now the rotors probably will in a race setting but i doubt the caps would

Will do.
I'll get my brakes fixed tomorrow and if it's not up to my taste in regards to braking, I'll bite the bullet and get a BBK from Brembo or Wilwood. Since they are actually 13.1" they are the same size as the stock ones but I hope that the 17" wheel would clear the calipers, that's my only concern.

Best way to check is to find the corresponding brake caliper diagram from Brembo/Wilwood before you purchase the kit.
You can print it (make sure its 1:1), cut it out, and check it against the back of the wheel and you'll know for sure whether they'll clear the brakes or not!
