I really like those

Look for more information to be available at the Southern Worthersee show in a few weeks, where we will also be taking orders for the wheels!
Until the US website goes live, please contact us at email@example.com with any enquiries.

LOL. Not really. Last time I checked their 0.01 wheels are like 10 other sets of wheels that are made. And their .05 is the same. They look cool but hardly a 'breath of fresh air'.3SDM is the breath of fresh air the otherwise stale aftermarket wheel sector needed.

So I can't see Forge brining over that design when it's got the exchange rate and added shipping expense to deal with compared to the Miro version that's already here.
No idea what I'm doing here.
The only reason I am posting is because our name is mentioned here and also because you've offered info that also involves us. I sense an undertone in your post that suggests the renderings we've shown are somehow a reaction to a competitor's design, and I want to go on record to state this is 100% not true.
To set the record straight, the renderings we've shown of our pocketed-spoke Tarmac were created at the same time as the original - that is to say, almost two years ago. From the get-go we saw the Tarmac as being a versatile design capable of morphing into several different looks. While you are correct in suggesting we are currently creating forged versions of our pocketed design, we do have the ability to machine our cast Tarmacs to a similar effect.
Brad, I am more than happy to state publicly here on the forums that there is absolutely no tone implied in my comments at all, least of all any directed towards yourselves. If any was inferred, I apologize as well.
As you are aware, I had been in contact with yourselves on multiple occasions regarding the possible purchase of a set of Tarmacs for my own vehicle, so I absolutely respect and appreciate what you guys are doing. It was always just bad timing when I was ready to purchase as you guys happened to be out of stock in those instances, so I would otherwise own a set myself.
The only reason for my remarks here were that we preemptively anticipated some comparisons being made, and we simply wanted to clarify some of the differences between the wheels to highlight that there was absolutely no plagiarism on the part of either party and that both designs were done independently although perhaps simultaneously.
There is nothing but respect from us, and we do not want to create a directly competitive, least of all an antagonistic environment, so please don't think we have any intentions to the contrary. We're happy to work with you guys in any capacity possible as well.
