EVERYTHING is a buzzword on the internet... and especially with cars...
But besides that, I didn't mean to imply that forged wheels are somehow less adequete than cast wheels, what I was trying to say(and I admit that I sometimes do this poorly) is that there is no magic bullet. Too many times I see threads where someone asks a question, as has been asked here, and it gets many responses saying that this is the ultimate-one-true-never-deviates-from-this, answer.
To illustrate my point, you said "You would pretty much take a forged rim over any cast rim they are lighter and much more durable.." and I was just pointing out that if he went and bought a set of 5lbs 18" rims just because they're forged and they cracked on the first speedbump he hit, he would blame you for the lousy advice. I know you didn't mean it that way, and it's actually pretty good advice, but you can't always say "forged is the ultimate-one-true-never-deviates-from-this answer"
