The size of custom forged wheels can impact its cost. Larger wheels require more materials and often have higher price tags. Additionally, some car owners are able to save money when they match the size of their existing wheels so they can reuse their tires on their new wheel.

What do you plan to do with your new custom forged tires? Off-roading or specialty wheels are different than what you’d want in a sports car.  These wheels are often manufactured differently and require different designs.
