Auto Talent | New F14 AND F05 Wheel from Forgestar Custom Flow Formed Wheels

We very excited to release the worlds first custom flow formed wheel series manufactured by Forgestar. Over the course of the last few years the wheel market has exploded, however there is a pretty large divide from a pricing and performance aspect. Most of the cost effective wheels have 1 or 2 fitments and are heavier. Most of the forged custom wheels have infinite fitments, are lightweight and run the cost of a average mortgage payment!

FORGESTAR Wheels has been launched to bridge this gap while offering:

Quality 'Flow Form' Construction
Light Weight (approx 24lb for a 19x10")
Custom Fitment
Cost Effective Price Point.

Here is some info about the Flow Form Casting process, which is a hybrid of forging and casting, and is used by companies such as BBS and Enkei:

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.

Bolt Pattern from 5x108 - 5x130
TPMS Compatible
Clears OEM and Aftermarket Large Calipers

PRICING:
MSRP - $1950.00/set

INTRODUCTORY SPECIAL PRE ORDER PRICE - $1399 A SET OF 4

It looks to be a wide range of fitment patterns so it looks like 5x120 is offered. How is the 19x10 lighter than the 19x9? And please let's get some wheels like these in 20."

Yes Forgestar offsets 5x120 bolt patterns.

They offer a 19x9 and 19x10 for E90 and E92 M3

Comparison of the front and rear. The rear has a deeper concave shape while the fronts are a little flatter.

The 19x10 has less back pad yet still clears brakes.

Trying to find out if the 19x11 will fit on the M3 with ET33, it might rub on the inside depending on what brand & size tires.

It not only fits but you can still run some spacers for a more aggressive setup.
