19"s black: iForged or SSR-GT3 5 spokes

I've been looking long and hard for black 19"s with polished lips. Trying to black out my 2005 M3 Carbon black...Narrowed down to 5 cross-spoke design: either the iForged Classics or SSR-GT3's

The iForged Classics comes in Graphite...the SSR-GT3's come in Satin which I think may not be dark enough, though someone on this forum had them powder coated which looked sweet (attached pics.). Heard that the SSR-GT3's may be too soft/bend?

Any opinions on quality or any other similar designed wheels - looking to spend around 2500 or so....thanks!

I like the IForged better. SSR is going outta business I think.

I have the iforged classics that you're thinking about purchasing. I also thought about getting them in black, but ended up ordering graphite/gunmetal instead. I was a lot happier with the gunmetal center because the design of the wheels could be seen a little easier. I got them for right around what your budget is. You should PM Derrick from D2 Autosport about all your wheel needs. He'll take care of you.

I laugh when I see a statement like this. My best friend and I had nothing but complete headaches dealing with Iforged and their low quality.The ONLY way I would dare buy another Iforged wheel is if someone else had bought the company and promised to take care of the customer.

Wow, seems like an overwhelming majority of people like iForged....what exactly are the negatives about SSR wheels?
Are iForged wheels that much better in terms of quality?

SSR = "super soft rims"

heard many stories about these rims bending...gt3's look sweet but it's questionable.
