Thanks man!
CCW seems to not support our bolt pattern, but I'll give them a call.
HRE is just simply stupid pricing. Great wheels, but crazy pricing.
I'll still give them a call. Hope someone can make it for our bolt pattern

HRE was rude and pretty much blew me off....that's why I went with ADV.1
They would respond to emails within minutes and Carlos there put me in touch with their Texas distributor and he was a breeze to work with. My only regret is the wait but you already know how that goes.
I guess the wheel style would dictate the weight but my 2 piece 22x10's are mid 20lbs each with a powdercoat finish. They make some super light weight 1 piece wheels that may fit what you're looking for.
Mine were $5129 shipped.....20's and/or 1 piece would be quite a bit less.

Thanks unbroken for responding.
I may just hit up ADV.1 and ask for Carlos.
Yea, 20's will surely be cheaper. Just gotta see how much. Mid 20's for 22's is pretty damn good and reasonable.
I hope they can make negative offsets....but bein it's custom, I'm sure they can.
Is it a 2-3 month turn around?
I waited 4 months for a set for my car. Which was crazy long. But ordering now will be good to go for spring.

By the time you get custom wheels you might as well just grab a S/C kit. $5200

A S/C would make much more of a noticeable difference and cost around the same...

Stick with the $800-$1000 china wheels and get yourself a S/C

They told me 8-12 weeks when I ordered in mid-December and they can do any offset you need I'm sure.
They really are the easiest wheel company I've ever worked with.

I sent them an email and hoping they respond back.
It went to someone here in Canada.
I may hit up someone in the US too.

So I got a call back from the rim guy I use for my vehicles and they work closely with Forged 1 Wheels and from experience make some pretty damn good quality wheels.
I have purchased 3 sets from them and have been pleased.

All have been sub 25lbs and 20x10's. Actually my last set was 21.3lbs.

That being said, it will cost a pretty penny for these.
Rough estimate is $4500 shipped for a 3 piece wheel but it will be custom made for my ram fitment. I can choose any finish and design....
Question is, do I want to spend this money for the ram. Im sure I can talk him down a bit considering the amount of wheels I have bought from them.
Last set I paid was $4000 shipped.

Decisions.....
It will take 5-6 weeks

I did tell him I wanted wheels to look similar to these Justice SS5 Wheels

I will probably not be doing all black as I am not digging this ALL blacked out look I got....haha

I will probably do a chrome lip (durability) or gloss black lip with a Gun metal tint centers.....I think it will look pretty sweet. Somewhat keeping the dark theme but not ALL black.
Most likely do a 20x10, -25 offset or a 20x12, -35 offset for a deeper lip. Again, they can play with any offset, lip size, concavity, straight lip, step lip, no lip and concave, the options are endless.
Plus they can remove a lot of the back padding to shed weight too

I just need to figure out if I go this route

I would do 20x12 and then make whatever design you go with you can reverse mount the faces so that you have an additional adjustable offset 15+/- I would say stay around the -24 range with the 12" wide since its going to stick out even further than what we have now.
