With over 30 years of combined experience in the automotive wheel industry Forgestar Performance Wheels has bridged the gap between forged wheels and cast wheels. Forgestar Performance Wheels is proud to introduce the world's first one piece lightweight custom flow formed wheel lineup.
Flow Forming is a production procedure that turns the wheel (or rim section) over a special mandrel and three hydraulic rollers using tremendous pressure. The pressure and turning then force the rim area to form against the mandrel, creating the shape and width of the rim. During Flow Forming, the rim actually "flows" down to create the full rim width. During Flow Forming, pressure applied to the cast rim actually changes its mechanical properties, so its strength and impact values become similar to those of a forged rim. That translates to up to 15% less weight when compared to a standard cast wheel. Our technological breakthroughs in heat treating allow us to increase dent resistance'without having to make the wheel heavier.
Forgestar Performance Wheels proprietary Flow Forming technology allows the customers to choose between a range of offsets for every wheel width that is offered. The end consumer is able to choose a wheel that will perfectly fit their own individual vehicle. All Forgestar Performance Wheels are compatible with tire pressure sensor monitors and allow clearance for most high performance brake caliper upgrades.
Wheels are one of the most popular aftermarket purchase for any car enthusiast for two main reasons, they increase style AND performance. These lightweight Forgestar wheels replace the factory units and will give your car that custom look to set you apart from the pack. But these wheels aren't just show; their lightweight construction means less rotating weight, translating into faster acceleration, braking, and overall efficiency. Forgestar's groundbreaking proprietary flow forming process is the same technology used on Formula 1 and Indy cars, which demand the ultimate combination of performance, durability, and reduced weight.
How to find the best fitment of Forgestar S18 for your car
Finding a perfect wheel fitment is not an easy job. We fully understand it and we are here to help You find the best configuration of Forgestar S18 wheels and tires for your car.
To find the best size of Forgestar S18 wheels for a specific car we have to choose parameters like: bolt patter, centre bore, width, diameter and offset (ET). A proper combination allows to perfectly fit wheels to car body but also to suspension and brake parts. Every single car model, even engine version may need a different wheel fitment.
Rarely our fitments of Forgestar S18 wheels are exactly the same as OEM wheels. In most cases stock wheels are hidden under the body. Often our wheels are wider and have lower offsets. As a result we achieve nice, flush fitments that make your car looks much better. On the other hand we take care not to make them too aggressive and poke-out. Such fitments not only look better but also drive better!
Finding a proper size of Forgestar S18 wheels is one job to do but we don’t forget about tires. In this case not only tire’s size is important. When fitment is tight we have to look also on design of tire’s sidewall which has a huge meaning on final effect. Even in the same size tires can have different real width and look totally different on wheel. Thanks to our experience we can find a proper size of tires but also choose the best model for your car and wheel fitment.
We have many years of experience in preparing wheel fitments for popular and exotic cars. There was no situation in our history that we couldn’t find a configuration for even the most untypical cars. Also we receive support from wheel producers and help in finding the best solution.
We give a full warranty on all our fitments.
