New Forgeline wheels on my V8 Vantage

Hi guys what do you think? They are the GA1R Forgeline wheels in 19x9 front, 19x11 rear in brushed finish and clear coated. I am very happy with the quality, look and the service Forgeline provided. After dealing with several other companies I can not say enough good things about them. They said the wheels would ship in 3 weeks, they shipped in two weeks .
They weigh in at 20.37 lbs for the front and 21.01 rear.

Here are a few pics.

Those look fantastic. The offsets are perfect. What tire sizes are you running on those?

The wheels look nice. If nice is good enough, you certainly accomplished that.

Just being nice wouldn't be enough for me. I'd want something classy but with more pop. I'm still into shiny lips because I think they provide more of a custom look and catch the eye. This looks stock. Why spend big bucks and go through the effort for stock-looking wheels?

Just my thoughts. Again, it looks nice.

Thank you. I'm really happy with them.

The offset's are 40ET front and 52ET rear.

The tires are Bridgestone RE-11 255-35-19 front and 305-30-19 in the rear.

I tried the polished lips because I was thinking the samething too, but the problem is most three piece wheels are heavy. One piece forged wheels are light. I do several motorsports events a year with this car and performance was a consideration. And, I like the classy, but with a slightly more aggresive look of the wider wheel.

'Cause an Aston is not a Lamebo or Ferrari or Corvette or BMW or whatever else...

This isn't 'pimp my ride'.

I really appreciate the op for his mature response to my post and explaining his thoughts even though he didn't have to. He gets much respect.

You on the other hand deserve a 'pimp slap' for your comment.

The wheels look very nice OP. I have 3 sets of competition Forgelines I use on my race car... They are light and very strong.

I'm a fan of both your wheel choice (design) and Forgline. Nicely done!

You want pimp wheels, then you get a pimp reply. You want grown up wheels, then you get a mature reply.

I agree, you should buy a set of 'dem shiny-azz rims fo' yo' Lexus. But you probably already got some....

The wider rear wheels really fill in the rear arches well! Very nice.

I also really like the look, great choice.

My goodness, you sound very immature.
Please leave me alone.

Wheels look perfect! Great tires, too - you can really get some heat in them and they still perform well.

Is your car lowered?

Mouth-wateringly good.

I'm looking at an '07 Vantage and this pushes me closer to trading my TT RS.
