Yeah, Iím happy to see the new flow form/flow forged technology enter the truck world. Itís time we get the weight down on some of these wheels.

As far as why the wheels arenít higher load rated, I donít have an answer from Vorsteiner, but I would imagine it comes down to balance of keeping wheel weight down, while making sure theyíre properly load rated.

Most of the aftermarket wheels on the market market are in the 2200-2500 pound range so these are slightly less at 2000 lbs. However, they are properly specíd based on the Gross Axle Weight Ratio of 3800lbs (rear) which puts them above whatís required.

I used tirerack.com to shop wheel and tires. They have a nice tool that shows you what different wheels and tires look like on your specific truck.

The wheels are a 20x9 with an ET12 offset so they'll have a more aggressive fitment than stock without going outside of the factory fenders.

Additionally, these wheels are made using Vorsteiner's Flow Forged process which allows to them to have to be both stronger and lighter. These new wheels tip the scales at only 28.5lbs a piece while boasting a load capacity of 900kg each.

Standard finishes are Mystic Black and Carbon Graphite. We're working on getting a bronze version as well. Custom finishes are also available.

I know we're in the Gen 2 Forum Section, but these wheels will fit the Gen 1 trucks as well as regular F-150s from 2009 and up.

Our preorder is up and running now so you can check it out at our site and let me know if you have any additional questions for us.

Love those wheels! I wish I had waited to get new wheels and tires, I definitely would have got these instead of the ones I ended up with. Oh well.. Maybe I'll sell the fuel wheels and buy these when I get a chance.

Anyone have any luck selling the stock forged wheels? I am about to pull the trigger on a 2018 that is on the lot and it has the stock forged wheels. That's the only thing I don't like about it, I think they are ugly. I will probably go with something like Fuel Rotor or Methods in 17" and sell the stock wheels.

List em on ebay. I sold a set for a local customer. Rims by themselves pulled in about $1800. He basically made $800 to switch to Rotiforms lol. Keep in mind there was a beadlock shortage at the time so that might be why they went for so much.
