Both are nice. I'm partial to those Boss wheels though.

Those forgestar's look dope. I just got a set of CF-5's put on that I ordered last year on a black Friday sale. I know the CF-5's aren't as fancy looking as the F14's, but I am partial to the 5 spoke design on these cars. I also like how light weight they are.

I guess I am obligated to comment on this thread too since I did nearly the exact same thing as Blazin haha. So I started with 19x9 Boss 302S Rims with 255/40/19 Bridgestone potenza S-04s for DDing and tracking and then purchased a set of 18x10" F14s with 275/40/18 RE-11s for track days lol. The difference between the 2 setups is incredible. First of all, the difference in weight between the 2 setups is night and day. It's incredible. The stang feels so much lighter and like it gained +50HP or something. It almost bums me out when I switch back over to my boss rims for DDing hah. I purchased mine from AM as well, however the 10s fit fine in the front. The only thing that wont fit are the wheel caps that come with the rims, so I go without them all around.

I've only done 2 track days so far this year and the first I forgot how to drive my car (lol). Once I remembered everything went MUCH smoother. I was able to pull 1.11Gs at Gingerman Raceway in Michigan. I wasn't too far behind my buddy who is a good driver with a souped up Lotus Exige S with slicks on it! Next up is ordering adequate track pads for the big girl (Carbo XP12s) and titanium shims to help reduce heat to my calipers.

I've auto crossed a few times but haven't tracked mine yet. I agree that the difference is significant. There is no comparison between the two.
