Default I pulled the trigger today.... $2600 poorer..

I have been in love with the Titan-7 T-S5 rims ever since I first saw them on AMS's site months ago (now taken down due to current unavailability for the Q50).


In summary, here's what I bought:
Set of four Titan-7 T-S5 19” in color Satin Titanium staggered at Front 19”x9.5”, 5x114.3, +38; and Rear 19”x10.5”, 5x114.3, +45, with four Satin Titanium center caps. (Basically the set-up that Titan recommends)


Weight:
Front (19"x9.5"): 20.6 lb
Rear (19"x10.5"): 21.1 lb


Quick background:
I placed an order for these wheels from AMS in May but they ended up calling me a few days later to tell me they are going to cancel the order and refund my money because there was no expected hard availability date. Titan-7 suggested it would be July (2019) and I was willing to wait but AMS didn't want to hold my money. Fast forward to this week. I contacted Titan and they told me these are starting to ship and he suggested I do a pre-order. He said the wheels are due mid/late July.


Since these wheels are cheaper at AMS than through Titan (go figure that one), I wanted to buy from AMS (but remember, the wheels are not on their site currently). So I contact them to tell them Titan suggested I pay for the rims. Nope, still won't do it! lol


But I did NOT want to buy from Titan direct!!! $2600 + $2XX CA tax + $95 shipping + $88 center caps = nearly $3k! (On Titan's website) Ahhhh! H no!


Long story short, I surfed the web looking for other authorized Titan-7 vendors. Stumbled across vivid racing (https://www.vividracing.com/). I worked with Tyler I. Great customer service. The price he offers is $2600 + shipping. (I happened to get a little better price but I think it's fair that I state only what his regular price is.). This includes center caps. vivid is in AZ so it is possible AZ folks may have to pay sales tax, but I did not.




I am stoked! I'm still shaking from the $ spent, but super stoked no less.


I'm sure I can look it up but if you'll allow me to be lazy, can I ask the tire pros what size tires I'll want for these rims? Looking at Michelin Pilot Super Sports. Thanks in advance.

I like those wheels in that color. Do you know what the weight of that wheel is?

Sorry, should have included. 21.X lb for the rears and 20.X for the fronts. I can fill in decimal later, if you'd like. On my mobile right now, prefer a PC.

I am trying to pull the trigger on buying these (waiting for an actual quote to be sent to me, so I can issue payment) because I had been waiting on Titan 7's promises since last year. This week, AMS asked if I wanted to continue waiting or cancel my order, and I finally decided to cancel because I have been running on my winter tires all summer because Titan 7's delays have been going on for so long.

I'd appreciate 3 decimal places if possible. Thanks!

@Avedis53 did you read my post about my son having a picture of your friends daughter hanging up on his studio and knowing her? (The fencing posts.)

Couple of questions:

You indicate you have 9" wheels here but in your garage you say you have 9.5" wheels. Which is it?

You indicate that the VS02 wheel color is slate gray in your garage but that isn't listed as a finish option. Could it be Matte Gunmetal instead?

Yes, I saw your post. Small world...at least the fencing world anyway.
