Some forum members bought some mono forged that were less expensive and great looking wheels (VS Forged) that are likely stronger yet due to mono forging (single block of aluminum). There is a group buy thread on those. Great wheel for the money. Almost all the oem wheels are cast. I feel your road pain living in CNY.
Do you have a link for that thread by chance? Yes living in cny is so upsetting dealing with all of the rim damages. The stock rims I currently have are constantly bending and one even cracked and was rewelded. I've been to the rim doctor 5 times since June of last year and had the car sitting all winter 😭

These, in all my searching, are by far my favorite wheels on the f-type. HRE RS200M in satin black. Unfortunately, I do not make '$9k for wheels' money, but gawd those are puuurfect!

Truthfully, the set-up itself is perfect. The Offset, the Concave design, the Suspension Drop, and the Camera Angle also has a lot to do with the beauty of these pix.
You could easily substitute dozens of different style wheels with the same Offset and Concave parameters into that set-up and most every wheel would have its own high-value drool component.

I cut and pasted the pic in my post and got hundreds of lines of code instead of a pic.
I tried to correct the issue a dozen times, using several different browsers and different devices, and each time I clicked “edit” the browser would freeze 🥶 as the code was too long to process.
I finally waited for about 10 minutes for the edit page to fully load and got the problem solved...

in the interim i asked the mods to intervene and delete the miles long post, but I got it fixed first.

While that certainly is true, I have been comparing apples to apples, and to my eyes, these wheels take the cake by a long margin. I've always liked 7-spoke wheels (and their derivatives such as this 14 spoke in a 7-spoke style) on performance cars. Also, the meaty sidewall is definitely my style, rather than a stretched sidewall.

The guys at TAG do have some pretty good photographers - as Mike says the lighting and camera angles make their designs look amazing, I will say the offset and concavity of the HRE designs is just perfect for our cars. I just wish they hadn't gone so over the top with photoshopping the pics on my car:

One of my favorite shots on the forums. Amazing fitment.

Tork, I saw your car on the VS wheel group buy thread. I'm not normally into larger wheels, but yours looks good!

Are you running spacers with these wheels?

Has anyone done a staggered fitment on their car?
Like corvettes 18/19, 19/20, 20/21 inch. I just wonder how it would look !

On a vehicle that does not come with it from the factory, the ABS would certainly go to work every time you hit your brakes, no matter how softly, and traction control would probably think you're always slipping, and ruin your day. You'd have to unplug a toner ring sensor to disable your ABS.
As far as looks, it would probably look just like it looks on the corvette.

Staggered fitment (at least in the case of Vettes) still employs matching tire diameters (taller profile on the front), so AWD, ABS or DTC would not be affected if proper tire sizing occurs.
