Question Which wheels are stronger?

Which are stronger? SSR comp or Volk TE-37. I am looking at both in 17 inch.

On another note, are the prodrive gc08's forged? I am assuming they are not.

TE-37's are stronger.

gc08? im not framiliar with that model..

I know that the gc-07's and the gc-06's are forged..

And yes.. the volks would be much stronger.. volks use a fully forged rim.. while the ssr use a flow formed process...

more information about the different processes is available on tire racks website.

FYI, GC-06Ds and GC-07Cs = Volk/RAYS wheels. They are made by RAYS for Bridgestone, branded and marketed under the Prodrive, Japan name.

Any of these three wheels(TE-37, GC-06 or GC-07) would be stronger than the SSRs, IMO.
