    Hopefully that's a good wow. :)

    We were able to keep our costs down on the CS21 as we produced them in a larger quantity than most forged wheels due to their very specific fitment.

    Amazing!! If I didn't already have a set of forged wheels, I'd hop on these!! Where were these wheels two years ago!

    It's close, but the wheels were designed around 3D scans of the 350 brakes. Clearance is roughly 2-3mm, though we've found some variances from car to car.

    And there is the problem. People are tired of getting pebbles wedged in the clearance and the wheel and caliper get scraped to hell.

    I'm not trying to be negative, but increase the clearance and you have a home run at that price point.

    @CSWC I think few GT350 folks venture outside of th GT350 forum. I know don’t.

    And put me down for a set of R-sized ones in grey if you ever make them.

    Hi All,

    Has anyone here purchased a set of these wheels with the Smoke Tint finish? Can you please share any thoughts and/or pictures? I'm still thinking about purchasing a set for my 2019 base 350 (Oxford White + Kona Blue stripes), so I was hoping to get some inputs before I actually pull the trigger.

    Thank you very much in advance!
    Don

    I would definitely do a set of R spec in gloss black. That would be a good value and Id pull the trigger on it.

    I am not a big fan of the GT350 wheels in black.

    I would like to see some bright aluminum wheels which are just as fast and easier to keep clean. My budget is <$2000 for four wheels. I'd rather buy the wheels with the Cup 2 tires installed with one deal with shipping (<$4000).

    I'd store the stock tire/wheel in my basement.
