enkeis are forged usually look up MAT process

there are a couple enkei's on the table now - but still not sure.
still have to figure out cost to reason ratio and make the decision.
i'll definitely be interested in seeing how the "cheap" wheels perform in the winter months, where performance isn't what everyone thinks it means.

I had a set of Motegi wheels on my old Civic, very ricer, very appropriate for a Civic. They chip easy and any "brushed aluminum" will begin to pit and rust after one winter. Not worth it, IMO.

ooooh really?
that's definitely a concern - one of the reasons i'm not keeping my BBS's on all winter any more. mag chloride is such a pain in my ass. i'm always afraid of it eating away components - but washing your car every 2 days in the city isn't very feasible. whatever i get needs to have a little longevity to it.

Yeah man, they're not very good at all. If I were you I'd look into getting some cheap rally wheels or something that are made for taking punishment. You're in Colorado so you might be able to find some.

ummm...not really. MAT is just a casting methodology that allows the outer rim to be stronger than a regular cast wheel because of the way it is done (Centrifugal casting/cooling) It is not a truly forged wheel by any measure at any point. Think of it as something in between.
