Forgeline Performance Series
Forgeline Corvette Wheels
Forgeline Aftermarket Wheels for the Corvette
ForgeLine shares your passion for automobiles. It is that passion that drives us to manufacture the highest quality wheels on the market. We are also racers. That gives us an advantage with the insight on how to build wheels that will meet today’s extreme demands of sports car racing.
Customers agree, as we are used by racers in Grand Am, ALMS, SCCA Pro Racing, as well as virtually every amateur sports car series in the United States of America.
The main characteristic of ForgeLine wheels is that they are designed for strength and performance. The knowledge gained over the last 15 years is reflected in the product. Our competition wheel, the ZX3R, uses titanium bolts and military-spec lightweight jet-nuts to reduce weight in the most critical point - the perimeter of the wheel. The forged wheel center also has unnecessary aluminum removed to reduce the weight as much as possible without sacrificing strength. And to optimize further, the rim material is lighter and stronger with the use of 6061-T6 aluminum.
Before ForgeLine releases a new design, it is tested using computer stress analysis. The computer model enables us to analyze the design under a simulated load and optimize it before machining begins. Then we test our finished products beyond SAE standards and use real-life racing variables when determining our test criteria.
Whether on the track or the street we take the safety of you, our customer, very seriously.
ForgeLine centers are created using a 6000 ton hydraulic press - a modernized version of forging proven successful for hundreds of years. The press forges the wheel center into its general shape. It is then CNC machined to create the design style.
Why forged? Forging aligns the grain structure, reduces porosity, and increases uniformity in the material, thereby increasing the strength to weight ratio with consistent results. Forging also allows the use of 6061 material which can be heat treated to be 40% stronger than cast aluminum.
Why use ForgeLine wheels? Experience, dedication, and personal involvement of the owner and employees assure that the quality, strength, durability, and weight of every Forgeline wheel is unparalleled in the industry.
