    Good looking but not sure why would want to downgrade the width? Unless for winter or something.

    I assume these are flow formed and not forged at that price. Any more details on them?

    They are forged and for good price =) Here is a process. You can make an order for any size.

    Well, "flow forming" and "spin forging" pretty much the same thing. That said, based on the video, they do use a "superior" process. Many flow formed wheels only do the barrel. The face or spokes section is cast, then the remaining lip at the edge is spun. Essentially leaving cast spokes and a spun barrel. The Silk ones spin the face and the barrel, pretty interesting.

    Nice, send a pict when they are on the car. With the weight savings how much will it improve performance? And MPG too I would imagine. How much is the weight savings over the stock wheels?

    Interesting process indeed. Unfortunate they use that barrel design though. Not going to give as good of brake clearance as they could. Always cool to watch those kinds of videos.
