Just in case some of you don't wish to watch the video, I'll sum it up and post some pics. We recently got MRR FS06's sent to us (rotary forged, not fully forged) and we managed to save 12lbs all around compared to the OEM base wheels GM supplies with the car.



MRR FS06's:
Rears (20x11) - 28lbs
Fronts (19x8.5) - 24.5lbs

C8 OEM Base Wheels:
Rears (20x11) - 32lbs
Fronts 19x8.5) - 26.3lbs
-----------------------------------------
14lbs saving across all 4 wheels.
More aggressive offset (tires poke out more)
Makes the car look 5x better.

**Correction** I stated it's a 14lbs difference in the post above, it's actually 12lbs.
 
Looks good. I might change my pre-order to the FS06 from the M755. Looks like satin black finish too... nice choice!

EDIT: Just watched the video, CF finish.
M755 are a solid choice as well, take pics once they come in!

Only thing Sparro is the price difference for the same rotary forged wheel
M755 are $1600 u.s a set
FS6 are $2200 u.s a set

I like the FS6 but if your going to spend the extra money go with the similar design NES-01 for $3070 and have fully forged wheels that are way lighter 20 lbs for fronts and 21.5 lbs for rears

Check out NOSOUPFORU he has them the difference in weight is huge

I saw his post, did he ever end up weighing them?

32 lbs in unsprung rotational mass is huge. Would be nice if GM had offered a choice for a reasonable cost.

If I go fully forged I think I would go for the directional F488s. They look really sweet. Same price for them as the NES-01 at $3070 USD

One would think that GM would have had a better choice of wheels for this new 2020 Corvette than they currently have. There certainly is a big price difference for the rotary forged wheels, ($1600 US) compared to the fully forged F488s ($3,070 US). If one has the spare money to spend, I say go for it, It's your money and your car. To each his own.
 
I agree, the wheels GM offered for the C8 are terrible. They missed the wheels that's for sure. Seeing I didn't get Z51 because of my zero interest to track the car, I don't think the weight loss of fully forged will do anything noticeable for me. I'm in it for the looks. I'll probably either go for the M755 or FS06. Just build and deliver my car already. lol

I watched your video and there was a comment re trouble with TPMS. Is yours a 1LT? I was just going over my specs on the Canadian GM site and it states TPMS is optional. Do you have TPMS on the 1LT?

Yes, TPMS sensors fit on the new wheels no problem.

How are the offsets in real life? Do they bring out the wheels enough for that flush look? Or do you feel their is room for more?
I would be careful about any offset. My Crays have a half inch offset and the rear tires rub on the fenders when I hit a bump.
