Default D2Forged CV2's - Corvette First

Well decided that the Hyperblack iForged had served their purpose and I wanted to change things up a bit. I first contacted Jeff at TPE and ordered a set of their T2 flares (last year) and shortly thereafter, contacted my buddy Derrick over at D2Forged.

Due to some unforseen conditions, it took me a few months to get back to work on EFI-1 but D2 had my wheels ready in 4-5 weeks. They graciously held onto them for me while I got things sorted on my end. While I was waiting Derrick kept in great contact with me and got my tires ordered. Nitto Invo's in 265/30-19 & 345/25-20 F/R respectively.

Being that I live in Hawaii, I asked Derrick to have the tires mounted to the wheels to which he obliged and then hustled to get my new kicks to me ASAP. Shipping to Hawaii was about $630 and it got here in 3 days. I have yet to get the fenders completed, but I wanted to give everyone a peak at what the CV2's really look like. I took a few minutes to snap some pics. Check it out and let me know what you think. Anyone on the fence about working with D2Forged, have no fear These guys are the real deal.

Big mahalo to Derrick and the team at D2Forged. They made this transaction easy and stress free. The product is well finished and the attention to detail is right up there with my previous iForged.

Y2KVert - Wow brutha, long time no see. I hope so....

Munch - That was the plan my man. EFI-1 has had the first ever hyperblack iForged wheels, then the first 4" lip with the Daytona's, and now the first CV2's from D2. Gotta keep it fresh!

1TZSLO - Thank you. If you want a set, let me know and I'll get you a deal.

Brutha Lowcash! - Mahalo brutha! Next time you come back we can go cruising....in the Viper or the Z now.

That Viper has a mean stance.

Very nice!

Makes me hate my 19/20 repro C5 Z06 wheels even more than I do now

Post some pics when you get them on the car.

They're installed right now, but I am still waiting for the fender appointment for completion. I have some pics on my FB - kidd hayashi.
