Was looking at the rpf1s at 18.7lb without hubcap, with hubcap 18.9lb for $1356 shipped.

A lot of people run rpf1s so nothing unique if I were to get a set too, also they dont even look so good so I settled for Konig Milligrams at 19.8lbs including hubcap for 900 shipped. GF chimed in 400 of those 900 as a Bday gift :)

Have to wait a month before Konig makes em and ships em to me.

Now question for the experts with 9.5" width and 25mm offset can I expect some concavity?

Should of go with 10 wide 25 mm offset
They dont have any concave even with the lowest offset

I think they are a nice forged lightweight rim, as good as any Japanese rim for sure.

I know they simply extend the hub piece for the lower offsets with wide wheels, so the hub area will just look more sunken in, not the actual wheel face.

Not exactly low price but a damn nice alternative to the RFP1's. I like the enkie's but they are ugly. This wheel is as good looking as anything out there.

This is the equivalent of the PF01, not the RPF1. Going by how the PF01 is built, its unlikely you will see much concavity at all.

They are made using the same MAT process Enkei uses. So for all practical purposes, they may be good enough.

it's like your Konig is made to order just for you. i really want to see more evo x installed pictures.

they were :).. Konigs website said there weren't any in stock, so they made them after I placed the order... I just checked, they are still not in stock, so I think they only made 4.. lol..

How are these "forged" if they use the same technology as the rpf1, which is a cast wheel? How strong are these things? I've never been a fan of Konig, but these thing look GOOD. Where did you order them from and how long did they take to come in?

Every wheel begins as a casting. Forging means pressure is applied after it is cast to align the molecules of the casting to the desired shape and make it more dense. There are many ways of applying this pressure in different stages and at different temperatures.

The only type of wheel that does not begin as a casting (usually spun afterwards starting with a castig blank) is a machined wheel. There it is just a billet block.

So how strong are these compared to say.... the BBS wheels on the MR?

I really like these, but I'm not sure how I feel about the "machined undercut". Also, there is just something about riding around on a Konig wheel that puts me off. IDK. At $900 they are hard to pass up.
