Default For a C6 Z06 - Forgestar CF5 or Cup Wheels?

I am considering multiple levels of wheels for my 2009 C6 Z06. One one hand, I am thinking of Forgeline (my favorite wheel company) but on the other hand, I am considering something at a lower price point for general driving/cruising use and occasional weekend track use a few times a year strictly for fun.

I love the looks and price point of both the Forgestar CF5 and Cup Wheels. If I were to get either one, I would get 19 in front and 20 in rear.

I'd like to hear some thoughts on the pros/cons of those. It would be cool to hear thoughts from someone who has had one or the other or ideally, both if anyone has had both.

Just kinda looking for general thoughts, etc. Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the input. Why Cups over Forgestars?

I can't speak to the Forgestar wheels, but would not recommend Cup wheels if you do anything more aggressive on the street or track. I'm currently replacing 1 cracked and 1 bent wheel. Read many posts like mine with these bending. Love the look as well, but not worth replacing multiple times.

This is the kind of feedback I was hoping for. Thanks. Keep it coming!
