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?

Good looking but not sure why would want to downgrade the width? Unless for winter or something.
I can use 205/45R16 or 205-215/50R16 or 195/55R16 for winter

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.
