Forgeline Announces First Two Wheels In AL Series


Dayton, OH - Forgeline Motorsports has created a brand new wheel series called the AL Series. The first two wheels in the line include the AL203 and AL204. Forgeline's AL203 wheel utilizes a weight-optimized CNC-machined forged aluminum center. Cutting-edge styling and a unique precision-machined forged 6061-T6 aluminum center with 10 asymmetric I-beamed Y-spokes grouped together in opposing pairs creates a striking design. Special engineering and machining deep into the edge of the mounting pad allow the spokes to connect deeper into the center. The spokes also extend beyond the rim register to reach out over the step of the barrel creating an all new style. This concave profile allows the AL203 to truly stand out. Available in 19-, 20- and 21-inch fitments, the AL203 is engineered for modern exotic sport and luxury cars including the Corvette Z06, Ferrari 458/488, Audi R8, Acura NSX, Lamborghini Huracan/Aventedor, Porsche 918/GT3/GT3RS, as well as Aston Martin, McLaren, Mercedes, and BMW models, among others.
The AL204 wheels feature a lightweight racing-inspired five V-spoke forged aluminum center design and aggressive styling details to yield a wheel with impressive performance metrics. The deeper concave profile of the AL series sets the AL204 apart from other styles. Forgeline's AL204 use a weight-optimized CNC-machined forged aluminum center to deliver technological advancement, exclusive styling and unparalleled performance.
"Here at Forgeline, we take pride in every wheel we create. The AL203 and AL204 are designed and manufactured to bring our customers the highest quality wheels that also have the ultimate style and performance they know to expect from us," said Dave Schardt, President of Forgeline Motorsports.
The AL series is part of Forgeline's concave wheels. All wheels are available in 19-, 20- and 21-inch fitments and are three-piece modular forged featuring deep concave profiles.

Forgeline's VX1-R Racing Wheel Combines Stand-Out Style With Extreme Performance


Dayton, OH - Forgeline Motorsports, the leading manufacturer of premium one-piece forged aluminum wheels, is expanding its competition series product line for professional racers with the VX1-R wheel. Ideal for driving schools, club racers and autocross participants, the VX1-R offers racers a new and unique style with the same advanced wheel technology that has made Forgeline an innovator in the market.
Following in the tradition of Forgeline's highly popular GS1R race wheel, the new VX1-R wheel features a one-piece forged monoblock construction and a motorsport engineered Y-spoke design with severe angles and chamfered machining details. The design allows plenty of room for caliper clearance and extreme brake fitment as well as faster wheel changes. Constructed to hold up under the stresses of motorsport competition, the VX1-R is light weight, has extremely low deflection under load and is highly fatigue-resistant with a 2,100 lb. street-tire load rating. Because the wheel is designed for the track, it has additional material machined from the center area for greater weight reduction and improved access to the lugs. The VX1-R does not accept a center cap.
Forgeline's new VX1-R is machined from a single forging of 6061-T6 aluminum for light-weight strength, durability, and exceptional competitive driving performance in 18, 19 and 20-inch diameters with a range of widths and offsets. Depending on the size, the race wheel may be available in deep or shallow concave profiles. Striking finish options, including tinted gold, blue and red are available in addition to the standard silver, graphite and black powder coat finishes.
Forgeline has drawn upon its more than 20 years of racing experience to develop the new VX1-R racing wheel. The fully-forged one-piece monoblock wheel was created with the company's computer-simulated FEA design process, which optimizes quality and strength-to-weight ratio to produce forgings that are 40% stronger than cast aluminum.
The VX1-R and other Forgeline wheels are backed by the company's state-of-the-art manufacturing processes and reliable customer service.
