For anyone interested, the person to contact is Paul at PK Auto Design. He is the owner and waiting to accumulate the orders. His contact info is: 1 (818) 408-6989, [email protected]

I am considering the VS03, VS08 and VS12. These are the lightest of the offerings and are all within a half pound of each other. I will be submitting my exact specs tomorrow via email. Please step up in the next few days so we can all benefit from the discount as well as the free lug nuts and shipping.

Lance,

Are you saying that we should not wait to accumulate the 4-5 orders that we need like you did with the Wortec brake rotors? Will PK process all of orders once they receive the required number?

That is correct, but please post when you have entered the order with Paul.

I've been trying to get a handle on what the various finishes look like. I found this hellcat website that PK Design had a thread on showing the VS forged wheels. Although there is a lot of non-wheel photos, you can scroll through and see some of the finishes. I need to verify if the brushed titanium on the VS forged website is the same as the brushed dark tint on the PK Design website.

https://www.hellcat.org/threads/auth...llenger.78521/

I would suggest verifying your desired finish with a reference photo with Paul at PK, or ask him to send one to you as I don't want anyone to rely on this info. The wheels look sharp on the hellcat website.

Just got off the phone with Paul at PK Autodesign and my wheels are on order (21" VS03)
After discussing many details with him (about 1/2 hour) I am getting HyperSilver instead of matte silver.
He sent me the photo, below, of a VS02 in Hypersilver, and it looks like the same paint as is on my OEM Gyrodynes.

(I had to restart my computer, crop and re-save the photo and then it uploaded... strange)

I included TPMS sensors @$38 each after confirming the sensors were ITM dual-band sensors, which are high quality aftermarket sensors from what I have seen (OEM sensors are ~$100 each)
He told me to expect 7-8 weeks to receive the order.

I also ordered the VS03 today, but in 20", Gloss Brushed Titanium and diamond cut spokes and bead (extra charge). Also ordered their sensors. Best deal going.
Keep those orders coming. Just 2 or 3 more to lock in the deal.

I am waiting on a return call from Paul at PK Design to determine difference between brushed titanium and double dark tint and also if gloss black with double dark tint (appears to be a possibility) is an extra and some other details.

Seems like we only have 3 buyers at this time?

...looks that way so far. I posted in two Facebook Jag forums to attract some more buyers (I asked Paul first), so there may be some contacting Paul directly; off this forum.
What style wheels are you getting?

Looking at VS03s, but wanted to find out more about the concavity of some of the others like VS01s or 12s. I think the DDT (double dark tint) is a tinted clear coat on the faces of the wheels and a gloss black barrel and windows. Brushed titanium may be the safe bet. They do customize as i understand it, if you are looking for something specific..

$2400 for the wheels & lug nuts, $144 (total for all 4) for sensors, and no more than $120 for mounting and balancing (plus tires). $2664 plus tires

_Here are a few pictures to help with the decision-making process.
The wheels are VS Forged VS04s, 20x9 in the front with 35mm offset, rears are 20x11 with 30mm offset.
The finish is Brushed Titanium with a clearcoat.
Tires are Michilen Pilot Sport 4S, 255/35/20 in front, 305/30/20 in the rear.
The car is lowered on H&R springs.
No rubbing, and I drive the car aggressively, albeit on well maintained Maryland roads.


I refer to this finish as “brake dust grey”

Thanks, rocspo. I was hoping it would be that color.

Uploading some images I received: I understand this is what you get when you order the DDT - double dark tint. It's gloss black with a tinted coating on the machined parts. I think this is the VS02 style, but I'd have to confirm.

Jaguny,
Thanks for posting those pics. I love the Brushed Titanium. I was very tempted to get the rims in this, and pull all the chrome trim and have it anodized (?) to match... but I chickened out.
Some of the chrome is certainly plated plastic, so the only way to match would be wrapping. Don't know if I could match that and be satisfied with the result.
Yes, that first image in black is the VS02; my first choice when looking at the wheels.

Here is the full VS Forged collection available in this group buy:

Just a note, much of the "chrome" on the F-Type such as the window trims is not chrome plated plastic but anodized aluminium (or aloooooominum to our North American friends).
