Vossen HF-5 Feedback Requested

I know many of you guys have purchased Vossen HF-5 so I wanted to ask how was the quality? I never had a set of Vossen wheels before. I'm debating between Vossen HF-5 and BC Forged RZ21 or RZ22. I like the look of the Vossen more but I'm struggling to pay the same for flow forged wheel versus getting a fully forged wheel from BC.

Thanks for any feedback. I love HRE and have had those on my cars but I can't justify the price on a vehicle that my wife will drive and curb up the wheels I'm sure.

I ordered the hf5 5 weeks ago and waiting for it as well. I chose it for the looks and made with hybrid forge tech. I had two sets of vorsteiner before this and they are flow forged as well and I have zero issues with them over rough roads and potholes.

It was the cheaper option cuz forged wheels are just too much for me and weight isn't gonna matter cuz its an sav and I'm not tracking my ride.

Funny you asked.
I have sold many to X3M/X4M guys, but this is the first time I am using it.
Since I have HRE on my X3MC, I decided to order 22" HF5 for my wife's car.
Just received it last Thursday and very impressed with its quality and finish.
The beauty of Vossen HybridForged is the ability for custom offset.
I've had HRE FlowForm on my G30. It is one nice wheels, but you'll have to play around with wheel spacer to get it to sit perfectly.

Anyway, here is the picture of 22" HF5 on my G05 X5.

what color has the finish? anthracite or satin black?
i have visited my local Vossen dealer and the paintjob didn't convince me. It looked like only one layer had been applied...

I vote BC Forged. Like you said, you're getting a fully forged wheel for around the same price as flow formed. I've had a few sets of Vossen and many sets of BC and I would personally chose BC time and time again. Not to mention a lot of people seem to be running HF5's on the X3M so you'd be unique running RZ21 or RZ22

Tons of finishes to choose from and you pick your size/offsets.

Here's mine on RZ01

Here are the best possible pics of an X3M with HF-5 wheels. I personally think they look awesome. You can also ask aw305 about the quality.

Nothing wrong with the HF5 , they are just common on these cars. As far as forging quality, it really doesn't matter unless you hit something extremely hard- in which case any wheel will be damaged.

BC forged is the best bang for your buck. The flow-forged Vossens provide form over function which I find counterintuitive on a performance vehicle. If you are not looking for performance, Vossens are great. I went with HRE wheels because total cost of ownership won't be too bad at the end when considering resale should get me half my money back.
