About Forgestar Wheels
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 rotary forged custom flow formed wheel lineup.
Forgestar wheels have become the newest favorite wheel choice of racers in amateur and professional sports car series in the United States and around the World. Using our exclusive Rotary Forged Flow Forming technology Forgestar wheels are designed for strength and performance.
Forgestar Performance Wheels proprietary design fitment and engineering allows the customers to choose between a range of offsets for every wheel width that is offered for that perfect racing fit. All Forgestar wheel designs are tested using Finite Element Analysis (FEA). The computer model enables us to analyze the design under a simulated load and optimize strength, fatigue, and stiffness while minimizing mass to decrease rotational inertia. We then test our finished products beyond SAE JWL VIA standards. This allows a racer to choose a wheel that will perfectly optimized for their own individual performance vehicle.
Rotary Forged 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. The 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 Rotary Forged 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 Performance Wheels are compatible with tire pressure sensor monitors and allow clearance for most high performance brake caliper upgrades.
