Default Concave Wheels

Hi All,

I am seriously considering purchasing a set of concave wheels for my 2007 Carrera. My concern is this.

When you look at the wheels, it would appear that the tires would extent farther from the centerline of the car than they do with the OEM wheels. If that is the case (and maybe that is just an optical illusion), I'm concerned that this would place undue stress on the components (wheel bearings, etc).

Does anyone have these type of wheels, and if so, have there been any problems?

Larry

The wheels under consideration are Forgeline CF3C's.

Well, I just looked them up on Google and they look like they are designed for these sort of cars, so unless the dish of the wheel is mega huge, I shouldn't think they will put any undue stress on the wheel bearings etc.
