VS Forged wheels are made by Vertini and Stance.

most forged wheel offerings are machine forged, which is basically CNC cut out of forged aluminum billet.

Rays offers a more "true" type forging process called mold form forging, where the basic design of the wheel is formed by heat and pressure before being cut by CNC. all things equal, mold form forged should be stronger than machine forged.

on the street you'll never realize or exploit the difference between machine forged or flow formed. if you crush a pothole either will likely take damage. so it depends on if you want to say you have a forged wheel or a name brand flow formed for the same price.

personally, i think Vertini and Stance are both reputable enough and I'd rock VS Forged
