I agree that the stock ones look better than any alternative. These forged wheels look the most similar out of all the various forged wheels I've seen. They'd be around $700 per wheel in a custom color. I'm thinking that getting them painted to match the Diamond Graphite color might make them look a little more like factory wheels.
It would be nice if a wheel manufacturer would make an exact copy of our wheels only forged instead of cast with some material carved out of the back side of the spokes.
I found out that the model I posted a link to above weighs in around 28.5 lbs. A dealer rep said that he thought that some of the other DPE models were lighter than the 8 spoke version (about 2 lbs. less per spoke).
These have a similar look but should weigh only 24.5 lbs.
I asked a company that takes FX45 wheels in, chromes them and ships them back out if they knew how much they weighed. The guy got back with me today, "approx. 47 lbs." Wacky huh? I guess the 42.5 lbs. is probably closer to the actual weight. I suspect that the 47 lbs. is closer to the total shipping weight with packaging materials, etc.
