Anyone running Fast wheels?

Looking for a set of winter wheels and came across a Canadian company on 1010tires.com called Fast Wheels with what they say are flow formed wheels that go for pretty damn cheap.

Website: https://www.fastwheels.ca
Wheel: https://www.1010tires.com/Wheels/Fas...nted/Titanium/ (21lbs for a 19x8.5 wheel)

Anyone using these wheels? I can't find many reviews online about them. Thanks.

I run them on my CX-3 also seen some Type-Rs run them.

Heavy, as you would think but fine.

I'm running fast wheels as my winters on my S3.

They seem to hold up pretty well, heavy though.

Flow formed does not mean flow-forged.

Literally all cast wheels are ‘flow formed’

No, they're not.

Flow formed is taking a "Block" of material and apply pressure to the inner barrel to shape the actual wheel. Cast is pouring molten material into a mould.

Literally not the same thing. One starts as a block of material, one starts as a liquid.

So you’re telling me cast aluminum wheels don’t flow molten aluminum into a mold to form a wheel?

Edit: I see flow formed as being the same as a cast wheel. Then rotary forged/flow forged, then actual forged/drop forged

@OP if you want cheap rotary forged wheels that are actually light, check out modern Konig wheels. The ultraform 19x8.5 is only 19lbs

You're using the term FLOW to mean liquid which is not what it means in wheel manufacturing.

If you take that term in its literal sense, then all wheels are flow/casted including forged wheels that have to start as a liquid to be made into a block of material to be hammer forged or wheels that are CNC billet have to have flowed into a block of material.

Everything has to "flow", I've never seen a block of 5x120 ET+38 dug out of a mountainside before.

All kidding aside, they are two different manufacturing processes.
