Default tsw sochi vs vossrn cv3

I know vossen cv3 are common on an IS but have you seen the tsw sochi? They look a like and its rotary forged so its gonna be lighter and stronger than cv3s I think it's also cheaper.
What do you guys think

I vote for TSW for better bang of the buck. May be i'm biased because I just got the TSW Nurburgring but i have researched so much about this company before buying. I heard good reviews on TSW on Honda, Camaro, Acura, FRS/BRZ forums plus TSW recently received TUV certifications. Their wheels pass JWL standards have VIA certifications. Last, they publish their wheels weight online and most of them are light weight.

You can see my new TSW wheels in the last post of this thread here
http://www.clublexus.com/forums/is-s...opinion-2.html

I have been driving it for some days now and having 8 pounds lighter wheels on each wheel (28lbs stock vs. ~20 lbs on these TSW), my car accelerate so much smoother, brake so much easier, and steer so much more responsive. It looks damn good too. The pictures really can't justify it, you need to see them in person. I smile driving it and it is priceless lol.

if they look the same and are lighter, stronger, and cheaper; buying the vossen would be retarded.

TSW have 18, 19, 20, 22 inch set up. I pick 18 because it is lighter, handle a little bit better, and I have already bought all 4 new DWS 18 inch tires prior to buying the wheels. So where are you going to buy them?

Try our clublexus vendor Need4Speed , look for Paul. He has both TSW and Vossen wheels. I bought my set from him and they did the installation (transferring TPMS, mounting and balancing tires) for me too.

I don't think they look the same unless you are retarded. Similar would be a better comparison.
