Post Forgeline GA1R | Monoblock Concave Wheels



About Forgeline: Forgeline Motorsports manufactures the world's finest custom-made high-performance lightweight forged aluminum street and racing wheels for the most discerning enthusiasts and the most demanding applications.

For over 20 years, Forgeline has applied their racing experience and passion for motorsports toward designing and building wheels that can withstand the extreme demands of sports car racing. With an unwavering commitment to strength and safety, Forgeline has earned a spot on some of the world's fastest race cars, including those in Grand-Am, American LeMans, SCCA Pro Racing, and virtually every amateur racing series in America.

Every Forgeline wheel is engineered using computer-simulated finite element analysis and tested beyond SAE standards using real-world load variables to ensure strength, safety, and performance. Innovative features like I-beamed spokes, hidden titanium ARP fasteners, meticulously-engineered centers, and complex manufacturing techniques (like those found in our flagship three-piece competition wheel, the GA3R) ensure that Forgeline wheels are strong, fast, and stunning.

Forgeline wheels are machined from heat-treated 6061-T6 aluminum that is forged on a 6000-ton hydraulic press. This forging process aligns the grain structure, reduces porosity, and increases uniformity in the material, creating the highest strength-to-weight ratios and the most consistent quality. On average, our forgings are 40% stronger than cast aluminum.

Forgeline's own in-house manufacturing and engineering capabilities also provide unmatched flexibility when it comes to vehicle fitments, wheel sizing, and custom finish options.

Concave Series: Since performance/strength/weight are of utmost concern to the engineers at Forgeline, they took special caution to develop a concave wheel line that does not make any sacrifices. These are lightweight wheels engineered for performance - period.

GA1R


The Forgeline GA1R is a fully-forged one-piece monoblock wheel that utilizes much of the technology and design of the very successful GA3R racing wheel, including "I-beamed" spoke technology. The concave design of the GA1R not only looks great, but allows plenty of room for caliper clearance and extreme brake fitment, while the one-piece monoblock forging and I-beamed spoke design yield a wheel that is extremely stiff with fatigue strength equal to the proven GA3R. And yet despite the strength and stiffness, for most applications and sizes, it also delivers a high-performance weight reduction - making it perfect for motorsports and racing applications or the discerning street enthusiast who demands the ultimate in performance capability!

The GA1R is designed for racing. It is engineered with a 1700 lb. street-tire load rating (per wheel) to ensure strength and integrity, even when subjected to the massive loads encountered on the stickiest race tires. The GA1R is produced using traditional forging method from 6061-T6 aluminum.

Diameters Available: 18, 19 and 20-inch
Width: up to 14" wide
Offsets: infinite
Finishes: pretty much infinite, you dream it, they can make it

-One-Piece Monoblock Design
-Concave Profile
-I-Beamed Spoke Technology
-Extreme Stiffness
-Extreme Fatigue Strength
-1700 lb. Street-Tire Load Rating (per wheel)
-Lightweight (19x11 = 21lbs)
-Incredible Brake Clearance
-Includes Standard Aluminum Center Cap

Any info if they're TUV/JWL/VIA certified?

I know it's a well respected company, but seeing a CCW cracked is concerning.

Short answer: No.

Long answer:
Quote from Steve: "We are not required to be certified by any of the above organizations, but our wheels pass tests that far exceed them"

Since Forgeline does not have a physical presence in Germany, they would not gain a certification.
Forgeline is familiar with JWL testing and they are confident that they would have no problem passing them. FL wheels easily pass the SAE standards that most North America companies use.

Of course, Forgeline's biggest testing lab is on the track. When the wheels are being used with 3000 lb. cars and slick tires load ratings of 1700-2100lbs. Forgelines have been on the track RACING for 20 years.

We went with FL for our shop car since we always see BMWs, Vette, Porsches and other cars on Forgeline wheels RACING at the track.

Those look fantastic on your white E92. Even better than the BBS GT4s? you originally had. I have an 18x10" square set of black Forgeline GA3Rs for the track and I love them.

Great choice, as with many Forgeline wheels, the GA3R and and GA1R are RACE PROVEN.
