Default New BC Forged RZ053 wheels and red painted calipers!!!

Josh and I went to get our calipers repainted on Saturday, I went from silver to red. I love the red calipers now, it flows well with my red interior. Today, I picked up my newly custom ordered BC Forged RZ053 19x10 +30 19x11 +45 and got them installed right away. These wheels are amazingly light for how concave they are, concave wheels are often a few pounds heavier at least. Mind you, my 19x10.5 TE37 was a super light weight at 21.7 lbs. These 19x11 super concave wheels came in at .3 lbs more at 22 lbs flat! the 19x10 was not bad either 21.8 lbs.

I would like to thanks Pyspeed and BC for the quickest turnaround on custom made to order wheels ever. Shipped to me from Taiwan in 1 month!! They are one of the few custom wheel companies that are JWL and VIA double certification. The quality is just unreal. I choose the dark brushed finish as my previous set of TE37 were done in similar finish.

Now here are the pictures taken with my iPhone 6 taken right after work this afternoon. Pro quality pictures to come in about a month with my new carbon interior pieces too.

















Lowered the rear last night by 1/2"

I absolutely love the BC Forged wheels, especially that new style. What tire sizes are you running? I'm guessing they must be relatively narrow considering the offsets you ordered. Let me guess 275s in the rear?

245/40 275/35. I can easily run 255 and 295 had I choose to. I had the te37 10.5 +35 in the rear before with 275 and it was still fine, 10.5 +35 is equivalent to 11 +41 or 42. My new setup is actually 3-4mm less aggressive

Stop buying parts from me! Always ended up giving you more discount than originally agreed

Always looked at those wheels and admired them. Looks really good. Any pics showing the offset, or how much they poke.

Those look great!! Are you lowered at all? And did you have to do any fender modification to make those fit? I imagine the fit would be pretty tight in back with that wheel size & offset, especially since you went with a slightly larger tire diameter (2% bigger) instead of the more common smaller setup (245/35 & 275/30).

According to a fitment guide your setup sticks out about 6mm more than JKH's setup with 19x11 +61 w/305 PSS, and he had to shave his fenders slightly to make them fit. So if you wanted to fit 295's I think you'd have to do some serious fender modification and/or camber adjustment.

I have camber arms so I can adjust the camber to whatever I desired. I can go slight poke or none at all. Right now, I'm still on my old spec of -2.6 degree of camber, my wheel is slightly sunken in a bit. I'll bring the camber back to about -2 tomorrow

My fenders are shaved. I'm currently running -2.6 camber as stated above. Will bring the camber back out to about 2 degree or maybe even less tomorrow. I'm slightly sunken in right now. My rear wheels are 16mm outward more than Ken, but with slightly stretched tires.
