Forgeline Motorsports, based in Dayton, Ohio, is one of the biggest names in town when it comes to high-quality billet wheels dedicated to the hardcore road racer. Their beautiful, handcrafted billet and monoblock wheels are among the most used in the sport of racing and everything they learn from R&D gets injected into every wheel that they make. We’ve paid them a visit recently, and were completely blown away by their in-house manufacturing process and the level of craftsmanship found in all of their castings.
But never ones to be content, they’ve recently announced seven new wheels for SEMA 2015 (pictured above), with an eighth (the GE1R) to be unveiled while at the show! You can learn more about the highlighted seven below!
The engineering team at Forgeline has worked VERY hard, over the past few months, to complete eight brand new wheel designs that will make their public debut at the 2015 SEMA Show, November 3-6, in Las Vegas, NV. These latest designs represent a broad range of styles and applications, while remaining focused on Forgeline’s deeply-rooted commitment to motorsport and performance engineering.
Forgeline has added three new models to the incredibly popular One Piece Forged Monoblock Series, including the brand new VX1, MT1, and GE1. The VX1 continues an exciting evolution in Forgeline monoblock styling, featuring a split five-spoke design (with long spokes that wrap around the lug holes), striking sharp angles, deep concave profile, and radically-chamfered outer edge. The MT1 shares the VX1’s deep concave profile and radically-chamfered outer edge and features a ten spoke mesh design with unique deeply-cut diamonds machined into the base of each spoke around the center of the wheel.
And the GE1 is an 8-spoke center locking wheel that combines the latest in advanced wheel technology (forged monoblock construction, motorsport engineered design, I-beamed spokes, and I-beamed spoke spans) to deliver head-turning good looks with track-ready capability. (A racing version of the GE1, the Competition Series GE1R, is also available. It is very similar to the GE1 but features a slightly more open design, making it ideal for competitive motorsport applications.) As with other Forgeline monoblock wheels, the VX1, MT1, and GE1 wheels are available in 18, 19, 20, and 21 inch diameters with a range of widths and offsets and the usual full set of customizable finish options.
Forgeline has also launched the latest three piece Concave Series wheel, the CV3C Concave. The CV3C features a muscular concave 7-spoke design with strong chamfered machining details around each spoke and a flat reverse-lip outer. This wheel is available in both a deep concave profile (for the most striking appearance) and a shallow concave profile (to create a staggered look or to accommodate higher-offset applications). It is available in 18, 19, 20, and 21-inch diameters and is fully customizable in fitment and finish, including center lock applications and your choice of exposed or hidden hardware.
And the latest wheel in Forgeline’s venerable Premier Series is the brand new CH3P, a clean and modern five-spoke design with subtle styling details that create a versatile wheel suitable for a broad range of vehicles. The CH3P was designed around a flat reverse outer (though it can be combined with a stepped lip outer, in limited sizes), and each spoke features a slight inverted taper and a sculpted dimensional valley machined into the spoke face. The CH3P is available in 18, 19, 20, and 22 inch sizes and, like any Forgeline wheel, is fully customizable in fitment and finish, including center lock applications and your choice of exposed or hidden hardware.
