I recently had a customer come in for a 19x9.5 Forgestar CF5
The customer had some very specific clearance requirements as he has the full Stasis package.
This included the Stasis Ohlins Challenge suspension package, full Stasis engine work, as well as the massive Alcon BBK in the front!
The obvious clearance issue was with the front brakes.
The customer had previously purchased HREs as well as a few other sets but they did not clear the huge Alcon caliper, so he had to sell them.
With this in mind, we got to work checking brake fitment with Forgestar in several sizes and styles.
We finally settled on the Forgestar CF5 in 19x9.5" for the best balance between performance and style.
I have to admit, when we got the car in and I saw the massive brakes, I was a little worried about brake clearance.
But we test fitted the fronts, we found there was plenty of room to spare!
Forgestar definitely knows what they are doing when it comes to fitment.
We threw the wheels on the car and the customer was ecstatic!
Forgestar has told us this is the first set of 19" CF5s on a B8, and I personally think they fit the car amazingly well!
This customer is a major track junkie, and the Avant has already seen over 40 track days!
The Forgestars are meant to be his daily driven as well as track wheels.
IMO he couldnt have made a better choice
The customer himself is a member himself, I believe he is planning on putting up a full write up on his own soon!
