Does anyone know if the Version 7 JDM rims are cast or forged?

Cast. They are quite heavy, but strong.

I recall from a few reports that they are ~22lbs. Probably one reason why they aren't that common an import. The UK rims are ~17.5 lbs, which I have verified, since I have a set.

the JDM/EDM v7 sti rims are 18lbs each which isn't bad since the stockers are 17lbs and prodrives are 21+lbs

I have sold and shipped a few sets to know this.

you're saying that the wheels which the UK gets as standard (which look identical to the stock JDM wheels and are identical AFAIK) are only 17.5 lbs ?

I'm not sure how that's possible, as I have very reliable information that says the forged BBS USDM/Spec-C wheels are ~2kg lighter per wheel than the standard wheel, which based on your 17.5 lb figure, would put them in the SSR Comp range in terms of weight, which seems extremely light, almost impossibly so for a stock wheel. then again they are $800/each from most sources...

what did you pay for your wheels from the UK & how much was shipping ?

Remember the JDM gold WRX 17's are different than the gold JDM STi 17's...
