Thumbs up update on forgeline17x9.5" rims

Several people have asked if these are the RS competition, or the standard RS. THe rims are the standard RS. Per forgeline, the RS is a forged center welded to the back half. The competition is a three piece wheel which is bolted together. Per forgeline the standard RS is a stronger wheel than the competition. In addition it is +/- ~1.5lbs lighter than the competition. These wheels are forgelines recommended fitment for the 3rd gen. I hope this answers any questions. The best way to reach me is on my cell at 707-696-2705 Thanks everyone, Carl Byck

RS comps are a 3 piece wheel per Forgeline. They actually sell very few comps as they have greater flexibility on sizing with the RS two piece. Check the wheels on the M2 car, or the Petite car, they are the RS.
