Forgestar or Verde?

Narrowed it down to two:

Higher price Forgestars:
Forgestar Staggered Textured Matte Black F14 Monoblock Mustang Wheel & NITTO Invo Tire Kit - 20x9/11 KIT (05-14 All) - Free Shipping

Lower price Verde axis: https://www.google.com/search?q=verd...57%3B800%3B776

Would run both of them staggered, with Nitto Invos.

I feel like the forgestars are on a lot of Mustangs, and the Verdes would be different. I just don't anything about the quality of the Verdes.

I know this boils down to personal preference, but any ideas?

I vote axis verdes. They look better and I don't feel like I've seen them a million times on a mustang

Forgestar or Verde?

the link for the second wheel isn't working for me, ended up doing a google search, great looking wheel, but I'm partial to Forgestars, there is a reason you see them on lots of Mustangs, they're a great looking high quality wheel

For the money, nothing else gives you the weight and strength of the forgestar, which is why so many people use them.

Proving to my fellow racers that the disdain that some GT drivers have for V6 drivers is unfounded, one results archive at a time since 2013.

Check out the new TSW Bathurst. I think I've FINALLY narrowed it down to those. It is very lightweight wheel also.

The 20x10 weighs approx 22.2 lbs

Those are good points. I just have never seen the Axis' on any other white mustang and I really like em. Even though I know the forgestars would be awesome, I'm just about doing things differently. After sleeping on it, i'll be saving a grand as well that can go towards suspension. Thanks for input

The verde is a great looking wheel. Looks like the new niche misano.

exactly what I thought. And as far as their color goes, if I'm not satisfied and want them black, or matte black, I could always powder coat them I'm sure

Verde, I can't find anything about the weight.

I KNOW Forgestars are lightweight & high quality wheels.

My nod goes to Forgestar based on them being lightweight, which makes everything better!

What about these: Forgestar Staggered Piano Black CF5V Monoblock Mustang Wheel & NITTO INVO Tire Kit - 19x9/10 79521 (05-14 All) - Free Shipping



They're Forgestar, so they're strong & lightweight, but they look different... pretty similar to the Verde you linked. And I prefer 19" as the ride will be better.

Those Verdes are nice! If it's just a street car wheel weight is not a really big issue. I don't care for those forgestars they look very blah.

These look great!

Out of the ones listed, I would go with the f14's.

Yes, weight isn't a huge issue for me. It's a DD.
