Whats everyone's opinion on XXR wheels?



Yes, forged is better than knock off wheels. But forged is not a requirement. Most of the oem and replica wheels we all use are cast and are perfectly fine.

Just a brand I've looked at and they seem to have a fairly good reputation especially among mustangs. The price and sizing of the wheels is great too.



Personally, I dont think I'd use a set for track purposes. But for street use why not?

Anyone have experience or opinion on the brand?

I love them. They're very nice for the price. I have had a set of the 521's and 531's and neither had any problems. I know of literally 50 people running on the wheels and all of them are doing great.

Which ones? The 521,527,531's look nice, but i have heard horror story's about them.
Any, a bunch of them look pretty nice.

Where did you see the horror storys?
I tried looking up some reviews and the only negative things I've seen is from forged fan boys.

Do you have pictures of yours? I think I recall them, but you go through tons of rims :p
You're on forged now right? Why the switch?

Both were on non-mustangs, but my buddy just got 2 of his 531's mounted on his new edge.



The reason I decided to go forged is honestly I had the money to burn and came across a good deal and I knew I could make money on them when I was done with them, so why not? I love my forged wheels, but there's nothing wrong with knock-offs. They all have their purposes. It's just easier to be "different" with forged wheels because less people are willing to pay ~$4000 for wheels/tires.

Well I shouldnt seriously consider buying any for another year, but here are the ones I like;

They'd all have to be hyper silver or machined for sure.


I have a crush on these, they're not released yet though. I'll have to see the dishes and sizes they come in.

The 531 and 521 are about equal for me. I like the 521 spokes better, but the rivets are almost a turn off. The 531 on the other hand are usually dual bolt pattern which is also sort of a turn off.

I really like the 526. The lip might be too big for the sn95 to pull off though. I'd defintely want to 100 dolla dish for the rears :p

I like a few of the flush designs, but in order to get me away from the bullitts I need dish still.

I love the 521s but I do not approve of that dual bolt pattern...Though I think I could look over it. Or not...

I was looking at getting the xxr 526's and this guy beat me too them. I can't remember his name right off hand but I love how they look on his car. I would love gold.
