they do pretty much, I looked up the weight and the forgestars in 18x10 is 18.2 pounds which isnt too bad for a wheel of that size, in the 17 lbs when not as wide. I didnt find the weights of the shelbys though, since they look very similar I would try to compare the weight and go from there

They both look similar as uber said. You might want to check out TSW, they have several similar designs on Discount Tire, 18x8 are 224.00, and 17x8 are 184.00/EA.
Just a suggestion, I really like the Valencias, Snettertons, and Nurburgrings, for a new edge. Just saving my pennies. LOL

Good point. The shelbys are 450 each and the forgestars are 350 a piece. The shelbys wont fit without spacers anyways. Just wanted see what they looked like on car. The RTR's kinda look the same but more curves and I'm not crazy about them.

I'm going with TSW, they've been around a long time in Europe. I looked at RTR, while they have a great looking product, I'm not paying $2300.00 for wheels, it the one thing that stopped me from buying Darkstars @ $400.00/EA.
Which honestly isn't horrible, but our roads are crap here.

I looked through all the Tsw wheels and some have the style of the forgestar wheels, but I still like the look of the forgestar better. The Nurburgrings are nice though.

The deep lug nut hub on the rear looks a little strange though????
