I did not like Detroit wheels either. The Forte5's are OK though, I would say. Similar to Laguna wheels on MK6 Drivers Edition.

so when you depress the clutch it will not make the noise at all?
when parked, engine off, any noises?

TOB, plate, and fork are mainly to be blamed for noises. Not enough grease or some debris.
