Default Forgeline SO3S VS SO3P

I have been searching through the old posts/threads and found the wheel I really like. The Forgeline premier SO3S. There are lots of pics of this wheel years back on this site and other sites in 18". I really like the step lip. The ones I saw were 18" and now I only see 19" in the step lip. Am I correct to think the step lip will give more rigidity to the wheel rim? The SO3P is nice but at the price I am looking for exactly what I want and that is an 18". The wheels will be going on a 1970 Camaro. 18x10 front and 18x12 rear.

Best thing to do would be to call Forgeline.. if they don't respond on here first.

If they used to have 18" then maybe they can still make them. The stepped lip is stronger, but in our pro touring world that doesn't matter as much. It also depends on your front spacing, and if there is even room for a stepped lip. The stepped lip centers are slightly smaller in diameter, which changes the look. A 19" stepped lip center looks like an 18" flat lip center (SO3P).
