Forgeline Motorsports has started fulfilling orders for its hybrid carbon fiber/alloy Carbon+Forged Series wheels after a nine-month ramp-up period at its Dayton wheel factory.To get more news about Car wheel, you can visit official website.


Launched at the 2016 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show, the Carbon+Forged Series wheel combines CNC-machined forged aluminum centers with carbon fiber barrels provided by Emergent Carbon Wheels for a custom wheel that's 42-percent lighter than its aluminum equivalent.
The positive reaction to the Carbon+Forged wheel prototype at SEMA was incredible," Forgeline President David Schardt said.

"We worked really hard to bring this to market, and we are proud of the strength and performance of these wheels. Our Carbon+Forged wheels are great to look at and are an exclusive model for our customers who want to set themselves apart from everyone else."


Forgeline claims the hybrid wheel design yields improvements to acceleration, braking, cornering traction, ride quality, NVH (noise, vibration and harshness), driver/passenger comfort and fuel economy because the product's weight reduction is focused on the wheel's critical outer perimeter where it has the greatest reduction in unwanted inertia.The wheels' carbon fiber barrels are engineered and tested to deliver industry-leading levels of fatigue strength, impact and damage resistance and deflection stiffness, Forgeline said, exceeding all existing Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) and TUV test specifications and surpassing the AK-LH 08 radial impact test standard.


The Carbon+Forged line won a Global Media Award during the 2016 SEMA Show.


The first wheels available in the Carbon+Forged Series are the racing-inspired CF201, featuring a five V-spoke design and aggressive I-beam machining details, and the CF202, featuring a directional sculpted angular spoke design.


Available in 20- and 21-inch rim diameter fitments, the products are targeted at owners of sport and luxury vehicles such as 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 applications.Each set of wheels is custom-built. Customers should allow four to six weeks production time.
