      Any opinions or thoughts on bc forged wheels?

      I think that I have come to a decision on wheels, but before I drop a few grand, I wanted to see if anyone here has had any experience with bc forged wheels. Good or bad, let me know please. I don't want to spend the money only to find out they break easy or have any other defects, or have six year manufacturing lead times or something.

      Thank you

      I don't have first hand experience with them but I see those wheels from time to time. I saw a Viper with a killer wheel fitment and they were BC Forged. Go for it.

      There's nothing special about the wheel designs that this manufacturer has, but it has a good review when it comes to the quality of the wheel. Their products are expensive compared to their competitor.

      I disagree with this statement. They are cheaper than any comparative wheel on the market.


      I have BC forged wheels. The order process was simple and thorough(brake clearance checks), dish style depths, etc.

      Shipping was insanely fast. Im in Canada so shipping can be a pain in the ass. When they say theres no hidden fees, theres infact no hidden fees(brokerage, etc).

      The packaging was unreal, quality, fit and finish was perfect. Bolted in valve stems color matched, etc.

      I would definitely order from them again.Name:  bcforged.jpg

      I was about to say the same about price and style, but I had to double check to make sure there wasn't a dramatic price drop in the other manufacturers. 800-950 a wheel for two piece forged wheels seems like a deal in this market! Glad to hear someone else out there has some and loves them!

      The price is lower because they are made in Taiwan afaik.

      They are machined in Taiwan and ship direct from there. They do not keep inventory. Every wheel is built to order. Absolutely nothing wrong with Taiwan.

      Forgeline was another 1000 for the wheels with another 500 in shipping to Canada, plus duty/brokerage fees. Any other forged wheel, boze for example, I was quoted within hundreds of Forgeline prices with unrealistic delivery dates. By the time BC Forged said my wheels were shipping, I got them in 3 days, crazy in Corona times!

      Basically 90% of the people on this forum will demand you get Forgeline. The other 10% of us say go ahead and switch it up.

      While forgelines are stunning, and have an untarnished reputation of quality, spending 5,000 + on 4 wheels seems a bit crazy to me. That's more than I spent getting my engine and trans. Bc forged are beautiful, affordable, and as long as they are strong, I'll be beyond satisfied.

      Definitely no disputing Forgelines quality and reputation, I just struggle to always go for the most expensive because expensive means the best right? Ive proven this along my life that price can mean quality but it can also mean simply its over priced for the same quality elsewhere.

      One comment Id like to mention, Not directed at anyone.... A lot of us think we are hardcore with our builds but in reality we are pathetic when comparing to guys that race and beat the heck out of their cars literally every weekend. Lots of these guys are running cheap cast wheels that are $250/wheel and have never had a wheel failure. Im a mixed bag, I have nice and expensive wheels and I have cheaper wheels. Ive seen oem wheels fail when they never should have.
      Hell guys will put expensive wheels on and run parts store ball joints that they over torque lol.

      Never heard of BC wheels. Is there a link to them somewhere. I'm looking for a set of track wheels but they need to be custom sized.

      BC makes incredible wheels, they have been around in the import game for a long time. What wheel specs are you looking for? I might know of some other good options for forged or flow formed wheels to save cost and be the same weight if not lighter.

      They are not new in the game. They are well established.

      I'll tell you now, I searched around and it was cheaper buying direct.

      My contact there is d[email protected]bcforged-na.com . Let him know Matthew Kuehn sent you. He was amazing to deal with.

      They send a photo of your wheels when they are ready to be packaged up and shipped out. Here are mine.

      I'm looking for something with 5 points. I really like this wheel. I haven't measured for backspacing yet, but immguessing the order will be placed within the next few weeks.
      18x11 or 18x11.5 rear 18x10 front.

      i actually considered BC Forged before I purchased my Forgeline's. I did like that they had multiple concavity profiles and more colors than Forgeline. The price I got for my Forgeline's and the fact that they are only 3hrs away from me sealed the deal.

      Yeah if you donít mind a couple questions:

      Stock wheel wells or tubbed?

      Diameter, width and back space?
