So, while I love my OZs...they bend easily...one of my wheels bent in 2 places. Can be fixed, but I'd rather something else I don't have to worry about as much. Are forged the only way to go light and super stiff? Or just give up and go back to stock?

Konig Hypergrams are ~18lbs for 18x8.5, 5x112. I had them for almost 6 months, no problems whatsoever.

Cybonic,
Do you have any fitment issues such rubbing on the front or rear with this setup? It looks like u change to a wider front fender. I m thinking of te37 saga 18x8.5 42, but afraid that it will rub.

what are you guys with 17x9 rpf1's doing for bolt pattern?

Seems like alot of people are running them, more than I would think are all getting re-drilled. So is everyone just doing wobble bolts or what? I have studs and would prefer to keep them but didnt want to deal with a redril.

I’m 5x114 with wobble bolts. Would really like to redrill them though so I can run studs
