New Product Release: Forgeline GA3R

Being in the business, i get to see and experience lots of great wheels. Lots of companies come and go as they try to compete at the highest levels. Many fail to innovate while others simply try to consume a piece of the market share with products that do not stand out or have distinguishing factors. It is certainly hard to stand out and even harder to be innovative.

Innovation is not a by product of hard thinking but a result of years of experience on and off the field. In case of wheels, both in motorsports and in the manufacturing arenas. There are lots of wheel companies but only a few that remain to be strong in both fields. Forgeline is one of them.

Forgeline has been building quality wheels for over 15 years. They immerse themselves in every facet of racing, from Grand-Am, ALMS, SCCA Pro as well as virtually every amateur series in the US.

The ZX3R is one of the most well known wheels from Forgeline. Titanium bolts in combination with military-spec lightweight jet nuts are used to redue weight in the most critical areas; the perimeter of the wheels. centers are machined for extra weight removal as well as ease of lug nut removal for quick wheel change on the race tracks.

The same principles are the basis for this new wheel from Forgeline. The GA3R. I think that this is by far the most beautiful wheel from the competition line.

Quote:
Our new "I-Beamed Spoke" technology reduces weight and applies additional strength in rigidity within the spokes of the wheel. The hidden titanium assembly hardware not only gives it a smooth clean look, but also functions to ease the efforts of cleaning the wheel. In addition, the GA3R features an enlarged open center area for quick and easy lug nut removal, critical for quick pit stops. Another feature of the GA3R is the design of the center allows plenty of room for caliper clearance for that extreme brake fitment. We have also employed a new, proprietary, fast drying, super strength sealer for quick and easy repairs as well as it being highly resistant to leaks. And of course, the GA3R is produced using our traditional forging method utilizing 6061-T6 aluminum with heat-treated rim-shells. Just like any FORGELINE wheel, the GA3R will be fully customizable in fitment and finish, including center-lock applications.

Do these come in 19? Can i get pricing for 19 and 20 preferably with satin or gloss black centers and a polished step lip...shipped to NY 10605.

if not possible, I'll take the same pricing for the silver finish.

they don't come in 20"
These are very performance oriented wheels and the largest that they offer are 19"s.

weight is very very good. however, since there are so many options and different specs that you can build, they don't release weights like monoblock wheels where it is pretty fixed.

However, I have seen 18 - 10.0 at sub 20lbs.

the more and more we get involved with Forgeline, it became apparant how different their philosophy is compared to many other modular wheel companies out there.

With performance in mind, the new GA3R is definitely a viable option, even against the almighty Advan RS.

Custom Centerlock Conversion System for M3

Did you know that Forgeline has custom Centerlock conversions for your M3?





This could be the ultimate personal set up for your M3.

this set up works will virtually any of the Forgeline wheels (and only Forgeline wheels).

The centerlock system is specifically designed by forgeline for the Forgeline wheels ONLY.

most of their wheels including all the competition series wheels can be built for centerlock on the M3.

Saw this thread, and figured I would add some pics of my Forgeline GA3s. They are the same as the GA3R but use the smaller center hole so you can run a center cap. I love them and they were worth every penny. These are the titanium centers with brushed lips:
