Default BC Forged Wheels

Would like input from those who are running these wheels on a Corvette Stingray.
Ordering experience, quality, fitment, etc.
I have a 2019 Stingray and I would like to upgrade to forged wheels.
I am not tracking, etc.
Pictures would be nice.
Thanks ahead of time.

Same size wheels and tires as OEM except the offsets are a little bit more aggressive. About 6-8 pounds lighter at each corner. The Conti's transformed the car.....quieter and much better ride than the runflats. Just added the DSC controller and the ride and handling is dramatically better.

Hoosier 315/30/18, 345/35/18 - BC Forged RZ39 on my '16 Z51

Re: Signature vs. BC, they are manufactured in the same plant by same company, as far as I know, and BC is the name of the main manufacturer. In my experience, BC was a little bit more affordable.

X25, In my brief shopping/buying experience no one would acknowledge what you are stating...that SIGNATURE is a private
label brand mfg by BC Forge.

Who was the dealer you bought your BC Forge brand wheels from, as have thought that SIGNATURE prices were lower ????

X25, Are your wheels the Brushed with Black Tint Powder Coat ?????. I was fearful that I wouldnt like that "dark" of tint
so ordered my SIGNATURE 501's Brush with a CLEAR Powder Coat....

This was stated many times before, but I can't find it with a quick search. Signature itself states they're designed here but manufacturedin Taiwan in their about section. In their older posts to forums, they say they got 50 CNC machines dedicated to them at one of the world's largest forged wheel manufacturers, and there's only one such manufacturer, there (BC). This is a known fact in other forms (e.g. BMW); I'm surprised it's concealed so much to the point that it's even questioned now : ) Long story short, find your best price, the model you like, and buy accordingly. I don't think the branding will matter in quality; they go through same tests, probably even tested by same technicians, and they're made in the same place.

Looks like the same as Forgeline if the online prices are correct. $4500 19", $5000 20".

https://www.signaturewheel.com/product-page/sv107-1

HRE prices are in a whole different category from my experience with getting quotes. Total high end.

Well Is nike really better than the lesser known brand name? I can assure my BC forged went throught the worse test ever. They held up better than you could ever expect from those '' cheap'' forged wheels! If it makes you feels better paying more for nothing that is your choice. But unless you had those, how can you tell that are not pair with HRE or Forgeline! I had all of them!!!

well, as mention earlier, overseas wheels aren't weaker!! See for yourself!! Whoever says bad stuff obviously never had them! I had HRE, Finspeed, numerous Forgestar set, Forgeline, BC forged and now Signature. And yet, you tell folks dont buy them! Without even had one single set!! That is simply talking about something you dont know!

BTW when ''american'' made wheels tells you 8 weeks turn around make that 12 weeks! Signature took 5 weeks from the night of the order to the day the showed up! Oh yeah that's why, its because they are cheaply made!!

I ordered a set of BC Forged wheels from PKAuto about 6 months ago. I got a lot of quotes from various vendors (CW4L, Vivid Racing) and they were honestly all super responsive and helpful in answering my questions. He kept me updated on the status of the order.

Quality is extremely good. The finish is outstanding. The hand brushed finish was carefully done and the clear tinted powder coat was perfectly smooth and laid on thick. The wheels required minimal weights when balancing.

Fitment is hard to judge since it’s up to either you or the vendor to define the correct offset. The wheels themselves will be perfectly machined to the size/offset/bore. I believe all vendors here are quite knowledgeable in what will fit on C7.
