So Ive pre-ordered a set of 19" wheels for my TLX. These are from a Canadian company called Fast. The wheels are called the FC04 and are made using flow forming technology which is supposed to make them much stronger and lighter then traditional cast wheels. These 19" wheels are supposed to be under 20lbs each which is pretty light for a wheel that size.

I've seen Fast advertised a lot in the Ottawa area. I don't know much about them though.

Those are great looking wheels. They should look good on the car. You'll need to post some pictures.

The company has been around since the late 80's but they mostly make OEM alloy and steel wheels. From Quebec too. I found them through my Hyundai dealer. They are Hyundais choice for the dealer installed accessory and winter wheels. They make Braelin wheels too.

Those wheels look great but aren't they based off of some much more expensive authentic wheel?

Being flow formed is great, less chance of cracking, although that isn't a common thing.

Probably, but I could care less. Unless you're buying a Volk, BBS, Work, Advan or something along those lines, they won't be all that authentic anyway.

Good point, they all have similar designs. I remember being new to their wheels and confusing the brands specific wheels from them came from, mistaking Work's for Volks.

In for seeing how they look on your TLX :)

Those look great. I like how they will turn some heads but they aren't over the top.

I'll be sure to check back when you get them installed. :D

I'm looking at TSW 19's for my TLX. Still undecided though on how much to spend. I live in San Jose Ca.

TSW's are on the cheaper end of what else you can yet.

Since you live somewhere that probably has nice roads for the most part, you shouldn't have to worry too much about pot hole damage because if that was the case i'd recommend going for cheaper wheels only.

I just realized that you're one more step closer to having your TLX looking like a Super GT Car :D

Those rims are quite the same, but I think there is a long way to go before it is looking close to this.

Have we seen any TLX body kits that are super aggressive? I can't find any with a quick Google search.

I've cancelled my wheel and suspension orders actually. There are 2 major road construction projects that started not long ago on the same roads I drive every day, so I'm holding off till the winter to accumulate parts. Might have more of a selection by then too.

Sucks that you have to put it off but it's probably a good idea. Road work can be tough on new wheels not to mention if you lower the car.

Yeah, but better safe then sorry. Im hoping Eibach and H&R might have some suspension offerings by then too.
