volk te37 wheels

i know this isnt the common wheel to be putting on a truck but they just look hot. Being in the tuner culture these wheels looks more performance than aggressive like the wheels i've been seeing out there. what do you guys think?

These are my dream wheels for my tundra but if I could afford those I would put my money towards a supercharger

Good wheels will stay straight longer but forged wheels crack. And when that happens they are trash. I like middle of the line wheels that are tough but can be bent back into shape if needed.

Although I really don't have experience with nice wheels on a truck as my truck is a work truck and not a show truck.

Ive seen cast aluminum wheels crack but Ive never seen forged wheels crack. And Ive pounded the lip back into shape on some Alcoa wheels before without any issues. What kind of forged wheels have you seen or heard of crack before?

My buddy hit a huge pothole with SSR forged wheels. He couldn't find anyone willing to fix them because they were forged.

They were definitely strong wheels (and pricey) but my understanding is the harder the material the more likely it will crack rather than bend.

Huh. That's weird. I always heard that forged wheels were easier to repair. With cast you are pretty much screwed because they are very difficult to weld due to the porosity in the metal from the casting process and they are too hard and brittle to bend without causing more damage. But with most forged wheels being machined from a single solid chunk of aluminum they can be welded and repaired more easily. Of course there is a limit to how much aluminum will bend before it fails and breaks but I didn't realize forged aluminum is considered a "hard" metal.

Certainly unique looking and the weight reduction will be felt at the dragstrip, but the price is beyond ridiculous.

I don't care about the environment. Neither do you.
