Default WORK Mesh Wheels -- What's The Diff?

Aside from the minor styling differences, can anyone tell me the key differences between the 3 different mesh-style wheels that WORK manufactures? The styles are: Rezax II, Termist TM1 & VS-XX.

I know that the price difference between some of these is pretty significant -- just wondering what you get if you pay more $$ for the more expensive wheel.

Thanks.

To me, Forged wheels are great quality, lighter but too expensive. Due to the weight, performance and value of Lexus, I see no point to get Forged wheels for Lexus. But to Mercedes, forged wheels are probably better choices.

i totally disagree. what about the mb that would make the forge wheels worth it? i think quite some people here run forged wheels on their cars and the price arent really that killing. on the other hand i have seen some 60lb wheels (without tires) on mb too

Can you elaborate please? What about Mercedes makes it better suited for forged wheels?

I have to disagree on this one as well. With the exception of the flagship S / CL / SL models, Lexus vehicles carry prices that are comparable to M/B, although the M/B does cost more. Lexus is by no means a bargain basement vehicle.

Also any owner that can appreciate the benefits of a forged wheel is justified in purchasing them regardless of vehicle marque.
