    That’s the same color I chose. I love BC Forged. I’m surprised more people don’t have them.

    Sweet Wheels! What size tyres do you plan on fitting them to them?

    I have a new set of Klassen forged wheels to put on my new S ( when it arrives)
    The rears are 21" x 11" and I have put 295 Michelins on them - hope they will fit?

    21x11 in what offset?

    et30 21x11 would be ideal for 285/30/21

    295/30/21 might rub

    colindo1990,

    Nice wheels! Have you noticed any adverse effect to your performance and/or range? I know typically larger wheels affect both, but looks like the weight savings on your wheels might counter that.

    Just curious what your experience has been thus far...

    Im running BC Forged 22 inch monoblock wheels which are

    25.4lbs fronts
    26.5 lbs rears

    compared to stock 21 turbines
    34.5 and 38lbs

    Pros
    handling and throttle response improved

    Cons
    wheels cost almost double than cast wheels

    less rotational mass = less energy consumption, increased in range

    Is the Klassen wheels going on the model S or X?

    If its for the X, then they should fit

    No I am going to fit them to my new Model S when it arrives....
    If the 295s wont fit rear I will put them on the front of my R35 GTR as I run that size on that.
